Also, how do you all find new newsletters?
I can't stand email newsletters. The one that I allow in my inbox is the Hoefler & Co. newsletter - they send out release notices for new fonts, and they're always gorgeous (both the fonts and the newsletters).
Besides that, I somehow find myself subscribed to LinkedIn updates, no matter how many times I unsubscribe.
I am glad I am not the only one. I swear that I unsubscribed from certain newsletters but they never die. So now I automatically send them to spam and report them.
I'm bias because I run it but check out UX Design Weekly for the best user experience design links each Friday.
I love UX Design Weekly, I open and read every single one
This was going to be the first one I was going to mention off the top of my head. Very few newsletters I look forward to, and this one, including the Hey Designer! newsletter are the ones I remember at the moment.
Add another for the love of UX Design Weekly.
I love the the Litmus newsletters. Even though I'm no longer involved in email marketing I subscribe for the pure aesthetic pleasure of it.
Same... no longer have to suffer the never ending design and build email issues, but I still enjoy thier emails. They are emails class.
I just launched on for my book this week, aside from the occasional book update I will be sharing stories of how bad design can effect our lives in very real ways.

Ok now onto my favorite newsletters:
InboxPixels - My top pick for UI inspiration. I never gloss over an email because its always full of good ideas
Product Design Weekly - Really focused and high quality content. I also like that it's weekly.
Now I Know - Not design related but this one is always entertaining. He investigates odd facts and stories.
Real Future - Alexis Madrigal delves into 5 tidbits from the past and future.
Thanks for the InboxPixels mention Jonathan :-)
I've been running a music newsletter for designers/developers for the past couple years: www.noonpacific.com
10 songs handpicked from the best blogs each week and delivered at noon (pacific time).
I really enjoy the SiteInspire newsletter. Don't always agree with its curation choices (sometimes the sites are too much art and not enough usability), but overall its an excellent discovery channel for some beautiful and creatively executed sites.
Admittedly this one is perhaps more appropriate for Hackers News than Designer News, but the JS Weekly Newsletter is great; and, for more serious engineering, the Web Operations is super interesting for web optimisation.
Objc.io A periodical about best practices and advanced techniques for iOS and OS X development.
One Design Company here in Chicago runs a solid, broadly design-oriented weekly newsletter. They surface stuff I don't necessarily see on DN or Sidebar.
I always enjoy reading the Mailchimp UX Newsletter. They publish content there and it's very relevant to my job. And pretty.
hackdesign.org is a good one. They sometimes send some basic stuff, but it's a good refresh.
Business proposition: a weekly newsletter that picks the highlights from weekly digest newsletters. New meta!
QZ Daily Brief! Also, MyFonts.
Responsive Design Weekly: http://responsivedesignweekly.com/
My favorite newsletters come from 99U - they send them rarely (which I think is very good) and every email is like a "diamond".
smashing magazine & daily skimm
I look forward to receiving the Benedict Evens newsletter every Monday. He collates the best stories in tech and mobile http://ben-evans.com
Benedicts Twitter is really good for insight in the mobile industry. He does some great research.
The Ann Friedman Weekly: "Ann Friedman is a freelance writer who writes a weekly email highlighting her own work, the work of people she finds interesting, and other tidbits of knowledge. I LOVE the way she writes these." - NPR’s Social Media Desk
Nick D‘s weekly newsletter always makes me stop to reflect. Same with James T. Green’s “Studio Visit”. They‘re both introspective designers in Chicago who don’t send top-graphic-design-CSS-trick roundup emails, but messages that feel like actual letters.
My favorite newsletters are the following (in no particular order) :
- UX Design Weekly
- Product Design Weekly
- iOS Dev Weekly
- Mattermark Daily
- Medium Daily Digest
The only newsletter I subscribe to, and have remained subscribed to is the Smashing Newsletter from www.smashingmagazine.com. It only goes out once a month and it usually has some helpful Front End tips & tricks as well as some similar stuff to what you'd find on DN.
