Hi Sugeet.  Your newsletter looks great. The only real issue I would have with it is that the screen real estate when your readers open the email is two fairly large images and no text. I might assume that it's all images and no text, and thus not actually read it.  Having some text, such as your introduction block, between the logo and the large image could help alleviate that.

 

Other than that, it's a fine example of taking one of our templates and making it your own.

Hello Jeff,

 

The newsletter looks great and very informative.

I'm a graphic designer so visually I think you should change just a few things.

  1. I think you should you one font for your entire email design. Too many different fonts will make it look too busy.
  2. The title bars that are burgandy - maybe you should try make that font bold so the title can stand out more.
  3. The IFSG picture is a bit blurry - you might want to try and save it with better resolution.
  4. Lastly you should try making the side bar with darker colors and lighter fonts so both columns can contrast.

Besides that I think the pictures are beautiful, especially the the top main picture - WOW!

 

Hope this is helpful!

Sugeet,

 

Wow - I love it!  I think the first graphic, while a bit large, is very tranquile and a beautiful representation of what you do.

 

In addition to the others' observations, I saw a few small typos:

 

-In the first section, second sentence says "thelps"

- In the "What Do You Want to See?" sidebar,  you have "imforation" and "confiential"

- In the Library section, the word "particular" is split without a hyphen and toward the end "inenouh"

 

A couple other minor details:

Since your signature is toward the left, near your photo, in the introductory section, the word "Sincerely" seems out of place.  Perhaps it will be more balanced toward the left as well.

 

The blue and white in the sidebar is difficult to read for very long as it seems too bright or something.

 

I wish you well in your business.  It looks very interesting and I was surprised to read about the Lucky Bamboo!

Thanks so much for your observations. I will check them out and correct as I can. Having trouble right now becasue my site is messed up by a certain plugin and I'm not a teckie to fix it. I'm trolling for getting it supported and corrected.

Again, thatnks for you observations.  Yes, not lucky bamboo! Suprise, but it's making someone a bunch of $$.
