No Junk Mail


These days your inbox is your temple, a sacred place where spam is definitely not welcome. Your promotions tab doesn’t need to solely filter emails from Netflix or Sheraton Sheets to be of use however, as there are so many great newsletters that provide more informative content than Egyptian cotton thread count.

The internet is so saturated with regrams and retweets that I find it refreshing to get an email with a little more substance. Here are a few ranging from design and tech to productivity and reading lists.

Eye on Design

AIGA send an overview of popular articles from their blog directly to your inbox. I find it a nice little reminder to check in with what’s new on the site.


Product Design Weekly

Digital product design news, articles, showcases and resources, delivered once a week thanks to interface design software company Atomic.

Austin Kleon

Ten things the Author of Steal Like an Artist believes are worth sharing—new art, writing, and interesting links. Short and sweet snippets and has a great list of reading recommendations.


A newsletter about design and everything, a digested read of the finest links and things Daniel Gray has stumbled upon throughout his week. It’s content is a refreshing dose of random, and won’t be found elsewhere on the internet.

Earl St.

A quarterly newsletter from Melbourne-based design studio, Earl St. They have a unique format and put a lot of thought into the writing. I’m always happily reminded when it drops in my inbox every three months.


People First, Technology Second

Written and sent sporadically by Nick Hallam about whatever is on his mind at that moment. Topics have ranged between design, digital products, interface design, autonomous cars and transport.


And then of course there is my own newsletter that I sent out weekly—naturally had to squeeze this one in there. Original content on the topic of design, including thoughts, helpful resources and news.

Have a no BS newsletter you’d like to share with me or better yet, write one yourself? Let me know via Instagram or Twitter.
