Typography in Emails: Revamp your Campaigns with typography

type, fonts, calligraphy samples

Although I've always advocated that ALL email should be ascii text, it seems the world doesn't agree with me. Oh well. Kevin George created this article, and it's an essential read for designers. He writes:
      The evolution of email marketing has happened on a fast track and marketers are battling hard to keep their subscribers engaged in their emails. Boring and monotonous emails do not grab people’s attention anymore. With waves of emails flooding the customers’ inbox and their reduced attention span, it is necessary that you grab eyeballs with something attractive and appealing.
