For our June round-up, we have email designs spanning all colours of the rainbow! From thoughtful celebrations of Pride, support when searching for a Father’s Day gift, or giving a human name to a coffee van, we really have it all.

We’ve even thrown in some peri peri and dough balls for good measure! 1.


Because options make life colourful 🌈 Chosen for:


Upon opening, we’re welcomed with a very satisfying frame sequence animation which flawlessly ties in with the theme of this email.

This, alongside the concise copy and clear imagery lets the subscriber know the purpose of the email within seconds.

2. Nando’s SL: NanGo’s Free Chosen for: Copywriting & puns.

We really think Nando’s nailed it in all areas with this one.

Their subject line was perfect for understanding exactly what they were offering while also showing personality.

They also showed incredible relatability to their customers within their copywriting, keeping it informal, friendly and funny as usual.

3. Grind SL: We need your help… Chosen for: Voting Module.

It’s always nice to see brands interacting with their customers in unexpected ways.

We love that Grind have given us a chance to cast a vote on naming their new van (if you’re wondering, we chose Nigel), whilst also subtly advertising their availability in a new location.

With their fantastic naming options, we’ll forgive them for their Spitalfields typo! 4.

Aesop SL: Father’s Day formulas Chosen for: Theme.

We love that Aesop has pulled together some refreshing options for Father’s Day gifts.

I’m not sure about you, but I always struggle to find a unique and useful gift, so these are spot on, thanks Aesop! Illustration.

Aesop never fails when it comes to eye catching hero illustrations.

This is an exciting change from their usual minimalistic, monochrome designs which really draws the reader in.

5. PizzaExpress SL:

New summer menu for pizza lovers 🍕 Chosen for:


PizzaExpress is known for being bold in the inbox with their bright modular colours and large punchy typography.

They have really upped the game by using a ‘click to reveal’ module to launch their new menu, encouraging the user to interact with the email and more than likely click through to find out exactly what’s new (and if their favourites are still available).

6.  The Body Shop SL:

Pride is more than a celebration 🏳️‍🌈 Chosen for:


We love when brands use their voice for good.

It’s not unusual for The Body Shop to dedicate emails (and pages on their website) in order to spread awareness for important social movements, and this one is executed perfectly.

We really enjoy how they have used colour blocking and catchy headlines to segment each module into digestible chunks for the reader.

7.  Costa SL:

Millions of prizes… catch one today! ⚽ Chosen for:


It’s always a good idea to grip your audience as soon as they click open, and we appreciate the time and effort that has gone into such a complex illustration.

Costa has utilised their bold hero to encourage the user to scroll, which is exactly what we did! Any you’ve loved that we’ve missed? Let us know on Instagram or Twitter .
