Recently, we’re starting to spot a kind of newsletter “inflation” in our field. Its no secret that emailing is one of the best ways to reach out to an audience, and its actually good for us in this ever-changing industry. We need that information pushed into our blood in order to stay on top of all the latest changes in this fast evolving world.

In the following post, I’ve put together a list of my favorite newsletters. Even some of which are not design/product/code related but I believe will be worth your time.

If you recommend any newsletters that are not mentioned in this list feel free to add them in the comments. Enjoy!
