Math for Creatives

Math… for creatives? Isn't that like mixing cheese and chocolate? Maybe in the past but as part of a modern creative's workflow, mathematics can be an invaluable tool to add layers of interactivity into your work.

This isn't your traditional math class. This is targeted towards people who think visually and want to understand how to mould math to their advantage.

If you work in design, motion or animation you will learn how to break down concepts such as trigonometry, algebra, randomness and noise in a visual, easy-to-understand way that you can add to your own projects.

Here’s how we’re different...

Support that actually helps.

Forever-access to our online Slack community of creative students from around the world, learning to code together, plus a Q+A section on every page. With our team based worldwide, we can support you whether you're coding early in the morning or late at night.

Real-world projects you'll want to create and remix.

Our course is practical, unlike other programs that take forever before you make your first real-world project. We care about design and focus on creative industries — it's not a computer science lecture, you're learning to make projects you'd want to make.

Structured, and flexible.

Our course is set-up to deliver real projects — no bullshit! — and we designed it so it’s totally flexible. While you can learn at your own pace, we’ll be here to guide you through-out your learning.

Design focused.

You don't need to be creative to take our courses, but everything we do is focused on making beautiful sites you actually want to make. This isn't your average online school — we focus on the practical aspect of learning.

Who is the course for?

Anyone who wants to learn how to get comfortable with math in a visual-thinking way.

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

While this course covers Javascript, you don't need any prior knowledge of Javascript at all to start.

What do I need?

A computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with the latest version of Chrome installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
