We believe in access for all

The driving principle behind Baseline is that high-quality design education should be affordable and available to everyone.

That’s why each month, we make 20% of our coaching hours available for free to anyone who otherwise couldn’t afford it.

How to access coaching

If you are unable to pay, simply email us at, and let us know that you’d like to book a free session. (You don’t need to justify your request.)

We’ll then arrange an initial coaching call with you, and use that time to get to know each other.

Portfolio Programme Scholarship

We currently have one new place available each month on our Portfolio Programme, which is designed to help you elevate your project work from the course, and put together an online portfolio.

To apply for this scholarship, using the design skills you learned during the course, put together a short set of slides explaining your personal and professional goals in relation to design, and how you think the Portfolio Programme can help you.

Once your slides are ready, email them as a PDF or Google Slides link to

If there are multiple applicants in the month you apply, we will assess both the content and design of each applicant’s set of slides, and award the scholarship to the one we think is best.

If you are unsuccessful, you are welcome to reapply the following month, and there is no limit on the number of times you can apply.
