Best online games for designers to improve their skills

As a designer, you will often find yourself having these short breaks where you just want to have some fun and brush up on your design skills at the same time. Here is a list of a few websites with design games where you can do just that! Without the need to sign up or download anything, just browse these links and have fun playing around with typography, shapes and colors. Good luck!

Kern Type

Practice your kerning skills on this beautifully designed typographic online game and try to get the highest score.

Color – Method of Action

Check your knowledge and how sensitive you are to different color hues. Try to match the displayed color and locate it on the color wheel. It’s much more difficult than it seems!

KOLOR – color guessing game

Similarly, try to guess the displayed color and to match it with the options shown in front of you. You don’t have to go through the color wheel, so it is a little bit easier since it is a guessing game.

Find the intruder

A brilliantly simple game where you should find the ‘intruder’ or a different hue among the squares that appear all of the same color. However, don’t get tricked by the first few levels that are quite easy. The game gets more difficult as it progresses, it can get very fast and quite addictive! Test your eyes and see how accurately you can really see the subtle differences between color shades.


The game displays characters that you are supposed to identify which typeface they belong to. It requires knowledge of the most commonly used typefaces among designers and can be a great step up to your typographic skills!

Shape Type

A letter shaping game with beautiful bold interface, where you are supposed to recreate the shapes using the point handles. You get presented with a half done shape every time, so see if you can complete the shape to match how it should originally look like.

Pixel game

Test your knowledge on pixels and try to estimate the pixel size that the game generates. You are shown a certain number of pixels (width x height) and you are supposed to draw a rectangle of this size with your mouse. This game really puts your pixel knowledge to the test and is a great skill booster for web designers.

The Bezier Game

In this game, you can practice handling the Bezier handles by recreating shapes that are underlaid in front of you on the screen. You then draw with the pen tool, using points and adjusting the curving of the lines using Bezier handles to complete a given shape.

General instructions:

  1. Open the exercise in your browser and read the task and the content on the left side of the screen. 
  2. You will be editing the content on the right side of the screen.
  3. In order to do that, right click on the exercise page that you opened and go to ‘Inspect’.
  4. Go to ‘Sources’ in the top bar and if you cannot see an empty CSS sheet where you can type the code, press Ctrl + P and start typing ‘styl’ in the search bar. Then press enter to open the CSS sheet.
  5. Follow the notes on the left and start typing your CSS code to see the changes online!
  6. Important! Do not refresh the page while you are editing the code, as these changes are in preview mode only and you can see them immediately, as soon as you write a line of functioning code.
  7. Use the custom classes in the notes on the left side of the screen, as well as ‘Elements’ on the top bar of the ‘Inspect’ to target and style the classes and elements. For example, you can enable the small icon on the top left of the ‘Inspect’ window (‘Select an element in the page to inspect it’) to find the default class name of the element you want to edit, while you are in the ‘Elements’ tab.


  1. If the code is not showing any changes, try adding the !important tag at the end of the line before closing it (before the “;” symbol) and see if it works then.
  2. Don’t forget there are usually more ways to achieve the same result. Be creative!
  3. If you get stuck, write your email address in the form on the left side of the screen and you will get the solution (CSS code) in your email.
