SpamMeltdown.com is a source of inspiration for designers of HTML emails but is also an interesting website for clients to browse. The name SpamMeltdown is a bit misleading - the site is really focussed on showcasing opt in corporate emails people want to receive, not actual spam (Viagra, anyone?).
The site is a wealth of resources featuring sample email blast designs for the likes of Bloomingdales and Pottery Barn and other brands.
Samples are further showcased based on other parameters:
- Color Usage: This section features a series of designs with a concentration of a given colour.
- Design Elements & Techniques: Highlighted design elements are showcased. Rounded corners, anyone?
- Industries: Zero in on what restaurants, hotels or the fashion world has been up to.
- Topical: Time or season specific samples. Happy Father's Day!
