How to think about animation toys from a non-code, motion-based standpoint
Working with Two.js within an in-browser canvas, even if you've never coded before
How to manage and manipulate multiple shapes using code
How to manage a timeline of events and loop over your animation toy
How to work with easings and delays to make our animations feel more natural
How to think about self-initiated projects from an animation and motion point of view
Real world projects – Projects and code that you can alter and remix to add to your own sites and portfolio
Access the community – Join our Slack and connect with thousands of SuperHi students and alumni
Continued help – Help from our expert teachers and educators with years of experience in the industry
Resources – Resources to get you started and going post-course
6 hours of video lessons – Practical, go-at-your-own pace learning
Anyone who wants to learn how to create animation toys and use motion in their projects.
This is a beginner course with no requirements apart from being comfortable using a computer. If you use programs like Microsoft Word or Photoshop without trouble, you're good to go.
A computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with the latest version of Chrome installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
In the first project, we'll talk about how to draw shapes in web projects using Two.js and animate them using simple rotations.
In the second project, we'll build upon the first project by adding and controlling multiple shapes in a group and learn how to manipulate them on a group and individual level.
In Looping Squares, we dive into timelines and how we can loop animations, how to add different types of easing and different delays per shape to create mesmerizing animations
With Zipper, we talk about how to split our timelines into two so we can go forwards and backwards in time and control shapes in a per-shape and per-sequence way
One of the most fun parts of creative coding is randomness. In this project, we add in random patterns into our animations by holding randomness data per shape to move them into a new position.
The Moiré Effect
On our final project, we create an animation with a four-part sequence that lets us control our shapes, easings and delays on a granular level.
Our instructors have decades of professional experience, have spoken at international conferences and have won countless web design awards.

Learning new and improving your existing skills is about being patient with yourself, building up your knowledge, developing confidence through practice, and with time. We've seen our students around the world do it, and so can you.
Our beginner courses are designed for people new to the subjects. They grow your understanding so you grasp everything you need to start applying your new skills and will also give you a path to dig deeper if you want.
Our teaching style is practical and straightforward and you'll have support from our expert instructors and community for as long as you need.
We have quite a lot of students that join us and have done some coding before but want to build up confidence and techniques.
In order to help get you where you'd like to be, have a look at the sites below to see which course you can make from scratch, without any help at all.
All of our courses are unlocked and available for students to start their learning and go at their own pace. We do have a suggested weekly structure for some courses, which helps some students stay on track. However, you're definitely free to jump ahead or take as long as you need!
As soon as you checkout and pay, you'll have all the courses you paid for, in your student dashboard available to you immediately. If you're busy and can't start right away - no worries, you can pick it back up later.
At SuperHi, we provide online courses designed for creatives and made for everyone. Take a course on Code, Design, or Project Management 😊
The proof is in the pudding! Our students go on to make their own beautiful sites and some of their stunning work have won digital design awards. Take a look at our Hall of Fame to see some of the sites our students have built, many of which had only taken our Foundation course!
If you're a SuperHi student or alumni and would like to submit your project to be included in our Hall of Fame, please feel free to submit it here.
Yes, we do! All you'd need to do is send the links to your completed projects over to firstname.lastname@example.org at the end of your course. We will review them, provide feedback if necessary, and then issue your certificate!
All our course videos are taught using the SuperHi Editor, but you'll be able to apply everything you'll learn to a code editor of your choice. Many students go on to use other code editors, for example, if their workplace has an existing standard.
Our SuperHi Editor is designed with many smart features to help avoid wasted time looking for things like a typo or missing bracket (which is why we made it!), but the same code concepts apply to any editor.
Yes! You can use your own custom third-party domains and connect them to your sites built with our SuperHi Editor. Additionally, all SuperHi sites come with free SSL Certificates for added protection.
