  • Learn from real-world examples and experience.

  • Take home the tools to apply your learnings immediately.

  • Are treated as a human-being by a personal approach, small groups and excellent catering ;-)

Design systems for in-house teams

At Leap Forward our designers have completed hundreds of design projects. For us it is essential that we don't reinvent the wheel for every project and that we can deliver consistent hight quality across all our designers and clients. Over the years we have refined the way a digital product design team works, shares and grows.
