About us

We have helped thousands of designers from around the world acquire the right skills, land the job of their dreams, and increase their rates 10X.
Our mission

We want to democratise design education and help millions of people learn new skills, land their dream job and ultimately get paid 10x more.

Does “millions of people” sound ambitious? Absolutely. But that’s what we do at The Designership — we’re ambitious and we aim for the stars, and then do everything we can to get there.

The Designership believes in teaching practical, actionable design skills that help you get better at what you do.
A game-changing designer is always learning and pushing themselves beyond their limits, and we are here to help you achieve that.

Product (UX/UI) design sits at the intersection of creativity and business. That’s why we teach you how to elevate your designs and create intuitive products, as well as negotiate with clients, navigate the business, and get the pay-check you dream.

✨ The spark of a slack channel

The Designership was founded in 2016 by designer Michael Wong, who you may know as Mizko. Looking to create a community of like-minded UX/UI designers, Mizko decided to launch The Designership channel on Slack.

What began as a small channel quickly grew to become one of Slack’s largest design communities. Scaling to just over 18,000 members from around the globe, the community was soon featured on Webflow and Adobe.

🎗 A community for all designers

Designers from all walks of life were able to meet and connect with others, share ideas, cultivate creativity, and more importantly, provide support and resources.

Following high demand from the community, The Designership launched its first courses in June 2021: the Figma Design Course, and Figma Design System.
