An inspiring & practical online course.

Learn to use modern tools & approaches to grow your business or project. Tons of inspiration. No knowledge of code required!
Starts June 2017


Or pay monthly


Hello! We live in incredible times. I'm constantly amazed at the potential for any of us to start a business or project, set up a website and be able to immediately connect with millions of people.

It can also be daunting. Trying to understand all of the tech you'd need to make something like that happen can be a little overwhelming. Because it's not as easy as it sounds!

So, today we're releasing a brand new course from my husband and Makelight co-founder, Stef. 

I hope this will help you to grow what you do!

Hello! I'm Stef.

Along with Emily and our small team, I help to run Makelight. I'm a designer, technologist and if you follow me on Instagram you might know me for drawing lots of cute monsters. 

Over the past fifteen years, I've created award-winning websites, apps and design work. Often for my own ventures but also for small businesses, brands and charities. Many of the things I've helped start have raised millions in funding.

If there's one thing I've learnt along the way, it's how to use technology and design to grow an idea from nothing to something.



What I get excited about is helping creative people and entrepreneurs to make a success of what they love to do. I've spent years working out how to get an idea from zero to something that works. I've seen projects fail because of too much tech being used to solve a problem, and also people being frustrated and unaware of how to take advantage of modern apps and tools.

On this brand new Makelight course I'll be sharing with you tools and approaches that will help you make your project or business successful without having to learn to code, or pay a lot to get it to grow.


Grow your business or project in a nimble way

Over one month, starting late September, you'll receive a series of short videos and exercises from me, in four weekly themes. We'll be covering some of these themes, and lots more!

Emily and I have built Makelight using the approaches I'll be sharing in this course. We often get asked questions about how we do what we do ("how do you get your emails to look like that?") so I'm looking forward to sharing some of what we've learnt with you.

As with all of our Makelight courses, you'll receive a series of videos, written lessons and assignments via our very own course system.

Take the lessons any time – there's no realtime requirement.
