01. The Challenge

Showcase how Mailchimp takes the guesswork out of effective email marketing and guides small businesses toward making better marketing decisions, leading to better results.

 

02. The Solution

Our goal was to show the bespoke solutions marketers need when facing unique challenges to grow their businesses and optimize their email campaigns. Keep the idea simple and treat the concept as a fun interactive manual for Mailchimp's suite of tools.

We partnered with Sinelab to create avant-garde visuals for our Mailchimp article. Using clever and eye-catching imagery, we showcase how Mailchimp's tools take the guesswork out of email marketing—turning boring concepts into winning illustrations.

Every business is unique.
Problem-solving can be just as bespoke.
