Important: Design Space for Web is no longer supported.
As of January 29, 2020, the old Design Space web experience at design.cricut.com is no longer supported. It’s time to upgrade to Design Space for Desktop – a faster, more reliable, more capable application for Windows and Mac computers. You can download it now here.
Rest assured – Design Space for Desktop works just as you expect, right down to its familiar layout. Instead of using a web browser, you’ll open it right from your computer’s application dock or taskbar. With the offline feature, you’ll be able to design anytime, anywhere – even without an internet connection. Plus, you can expect more exciting new features released later.
Once you install the desktop app, you no longer need to go to a website to launch Design Space. Just open it like you would any other application on your computer.

How do I download and install Desktop Space for Desktop?
I am running Windows 7. What should I do?
Microsoft has officially ended support for Windows 7. That means Windows 7 no longer gets security updates or customer service, and various applications and features will stop working.
The Design Space for Desktop does not support Windows 7. That means that you may experience sluggish performance or other problems, and you will not receive bug fixes or updates. For the best experience, you should upgrade to a modern, fully supported operating system.
