About IxDF

We are an independent nonprofit initiative with an objective that sounds like a paradox—to raise the level of global design education to an Ivy League standard, while at the same time reducing costs to as low as possible.

Our mission is to create low-cost, high-quality design education so as to change the way people learn design and thus improve lives of millions across the world.


  • We love results, productivity, focus, and efficiency. And we believe this is achieved through an approach of "work hard, play hard," having a love for what we do, a thirst for learning, and by taking great care of each other. And well... a lot of other things. But you will learn about that in our "Culture Course", a special onboarding course that tells you everything about our company culture - along with exercises.
  • We pride ourselves on being friendly, compassionate and supportive; we also encourage a sense of fun in the things we do.
  • We value concentration and believe that interruptions, meetings, and egos can kill productivity. That’s why work often does not happen at work.
  • We think remarkable results are produced when being in flow. That’s why we value location independent work.
  • We’re passionate about design and the difference it can make in the world.
  • We celebrate each other’s work and consider what we do a labor of love.
  • We continuously learn and teach each other.


Our main asset is the knowledge that is packed into our educational platform available by https://www.interaction-design.org address.
