Since the creation of the project in 2012 by my friend and colleague Sacha Greif, I immediately knew that Sidebar was an excellent idea. The pitch is simple: 5 design related links in your inbox every day, for free. The content selection is made by a panel of curators, mostly designers.
Today, four years later, with more than 15,000 subscribers and over 7,000 links posted, we can say that Sidebar has become a solid reference for designers all around the world. As a curator myself, I find it refreshing to have a tool to share interesting design links with thousands and thousands of designers worldwide. Besides that, I'm also giving some help to maintain sidebar on the admin side when Sacha needs it.
In June 2016, when I was told about the redesign, I’ve offered my help because I particularly like this project as you already know.
