Design System Courses

Our online Design Systems courses generally are planned over a few half days, to give you the same experience and access to experts that you would have in an in-person CSS workshop.

With our online Design Systems courses however, you can learn from your own desk or couch, and take them either live (real-time) or watch the video course at your own leisure, as all video recordings are included.

Practical and interactive courses

Our online courses use a lot of practical examples and interactive exercises. If you are watching live, you can ask questions during Q&A, and of course you can use the online course recordings and materials to study Design Systems at your own pace, at your own time.

Courses on various Design Systems topics

We offer many online Design Systems courses at various levels, covering a wide range of Design Systems topics, from Creating and Maintaining Design Systems to Making Design Systems People Want To Use. Please check our upcoming (live) courses, and see what Design Systems courses we have offered in the past, if you want to be notified of new live offerings.

SmashingConf Online Workshops


Blown away by all the knowledge I've soaked in from @rachelandrew's online CSS layout masterclass. Incredible how much you can learn about a thing you thought you already knew just by hearing it explained again. Thanks for organising this @smashingconf #smashingconf ✨

    Design System Planning and Process

    with Nathan Curtis

    Workshop, 4×2h + Q&A Thu & Fri, April 18–26 2024
    09:00 – 11:30 AM PT 18:00 – 20:30 CET Check your time zone

    Managing an effective design system requires that it fit smoothly into how an organization makes and delivers digital experiences. Yet, it must also embrace unique and usually more robust processes to deliver high-quality foundations, components, and other features that other teams trust to reuse.

    This workshop exposes you to scope, plan and run processes to make features, deliver releases, tackle complex initiatives, and guide an organization through a major new generation of an entire library. These processes create the foundation by which a system can pursue its vision, realize its strategy, evolve teams and practices, and create lasting value for an organization.

    Design Token and UI Component Architecture

    with Nathan Curtis

    Workshop, 4×2h + Q&A Thu & Fri, June 6–14 2024
    09:00 – 11:30 AM PT 18:00 – 20:30 CET Check your time zone

    Design systems are expanding in organizations, spreading design and code tools and influencing decision-making across product teams. With such scale, you must establish and share an architecture of style and UI components across design and code that endures and evolves over time.

    This workshop exposes you to essential foundations of design system architecture — the kinds of naming, composition, configuration and process challenges involved — to equip you with techniques and activities to make, spread, and maintain a system yourself.
