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 ✨


What’s A Smashing Online Course Like?

With our online courses, we aim to give you a similar experience and access to experts as in an in-person workshop, but without needing to leave your desk. This way you have the choice to follow the course live and join the interactive exercises with your 'classmates', or check the recorded course in your own time, learning at your own pace. Or do both, of course!

Our online courses are all about front-end and UX topics, and whilst they are structured differently, all of them are packed with practical examples. You can also ask questions live during dedicated Q&A time, and of course you'll get all online course materials and recordings, too.
