As a designer, I am always taking in different sources of inspiration to fuel my creative work. Newsletters in particular are a great source of knowledge and ideas. They contain curated articles, design tips, mental models, and links to design resources I would never have found otherwise.
Because I get so much value from the newsletters I'm subscribed to, I wanted to write this article to share with you the 7 best newsletters I've come across to help you on your journey as a designer.
Each section outlines a different newsletter: what it's about, how often it's sent out, and my favorite edition to give you a taste of what it has to offer. I hope you find some hidden gems here to add to your newsletter collection.
Design and frontend links delivered to your inbox every day or week.
Daily - Weekdays around 8 am EST, or Weekly - Tuesdays around 8 am EST
In each edition, you'll find interesting articles to read and helpful resources you wouldn't have otherwise found.
I check this newsletter every day to curate resources for my own newsletter and to share with you on Twitter.
A hand-picked list of the best user experience design links every week.
Weekly (Every Monday)
Each week you get the best curated articles and resources in the world of user experience design.
There's always a variety of content to choose from so you'll easily find something worth reading or bookmarking.
A weekly curated package of design tips, helpful resources, and insights to make you a better designer.
For the record this is my newsletter 😄 I hope you enjoy it!
Weekly (Every Friday 5 pm GMT/12 pm EST)
Each week I share curated tools, resources, and insights to help you 10x your design skills.
Use the tools, bookmark the resources, and apply what you learn from the insights to create better designs in less time.
Check out my favorite edition below to get a real sense of what's included in each week's edition 👇
A weekly, ad-free newsletter that helps designers think more critically about their work.
Weekly (Every Monday)
UX Collective is the pinnacle of design publications. Each edition of their newsletter has the best curated stories from the world of user experience and visual design over the past week.
Guaranteed to get your mind turning and your design muscles flexing.
A daily curated design newsletter with 5 top links every weekday.
In each edition, you'll find design-related articles, tools, and resources without having to scour the internet.
This is another newsletter I check every day to curate items for my own newsletter and to share on Twitter.
A brain-disruption from the world of design delivered straight to your inbox.
Each edition focuses on a seemingly random topic, like jigsaw puzzles or building on the moon. Then it finds the link between that topic and the world of design by asking questions like "who invented the first jigsaw puzzle" or "how might we build on the moon". You'll be surprised by what you learn in each edition.
Disruptive creative strategies for founders and CEOs who want to make a racket and gain a competitive advantage in crowded markets.
Weekly (Every Thursday)
This one is a bit of a wild card in that it's not specifically related to design. With that said, I look forward to reading a new edition each week because I always learn something new. From new mental models to apply to my work, to interesting stories about topics I wouldn't have thought twice about.
I highly recommend you check out my favorite edition included below for a great example of what this newsletter has to offer. 👇
