  1. Professional is just the work you do at a certain level of knowledge and complexity. Efficiency and best practices are desirable but they are not always present in the Professional world (and many people treat them as equal). Anyway, as I said once: Use the Tool that you need to use to do the work with the best result possible But if you have more than one Tool available, use what you want Designer can't cover all of the scenarios and some workflows are not as fast a others, but it can be used in Professional environments. It's just that it won't fit everywhere (and because of that, it's labeled derogatorily as "for hobbysts"). Best regards! P. S.: I had such a mentality regarding some Consultants that work with a certain company's solutions, considering them square-minded individuals with no creativity. Now I see that's not the case, but that some scenarios required more than going by the standard (us), but others require rigorous methodology (them).
  2. To be as fair as possible: On the Applications mentiones here: Illustrator has many more and more advanced Vector features than Designer Designer has a better overall experience using it for the first time Designer has features that are not present in Illustrator, or that Illustrator just recently introduced (think of the Crop Tool) On the Customers and Serif: Affinity's messaging can be misleading beceause it is using words that encompass a lot A customer should be responsible enough to see if current features are what they need. Assuming is a word that I've read a few times here Users can be so self-centric that they put their use case as that basis for their main argument: Designer is good/bad Best regards!
  3. Adobe Illustrator is whatever you might describe, except for user-friendly. It's a piece of Software with many great Tools but to this day it's something I don't enjoy using. On the other hand, even when you consider its shortcomings, Affinity Designer is way more user-frienly. Now, there are some parts in Affinity Designer that can be improved, and what Matt has shown (something asked rightly by you) looks good to me and it's a welcome feature, but taking that example and speaking like that's the case for the overall experience on both Applications, I find it just not to be true. Best regards!
  4. Maybe I didn't understand you, but to me "You bill clients for time used more than anything" reads exactly as if time is how you charge your clients. Now, if the tool is what defines your business, then yeah, it makes all of the sense of the world to have "the tool". For others, that's not the case. Best regards!
  5. This is a longer video on this topic, also including how to engage clients:+ Best regards!
  6. If this is of interest to anybody, Chris Do talks about charging based on value instead of time. Best regards!

    Curated list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts

    Hi there! I updated the Topic with the following: BLACKLETTER - Chomsky SANS SERIF - Inter. (Renaming of "Inter UI". In Beta stage, adds Thin, Extra Light and Light weights) SERIF - Ibarra Real Nova. Best regards!
  9. Hi there! I just wanted to share a list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts. This is a curated[*] list of some of the best freely available Fonts out there. The criteria I had in order to come up with this list: They have to be either Free or Open Source Fonts. They can be used in commercial projects (some restrictions may vary from Font to Font, so be sure to read first). I made my best to ensure this point, but I could be wrong and I'd be more that happy if you let me know if I made a mistake. No attribution required. In some cases (Serif and Sans Serif), they have to have more than two weights (at least one italic included). Support for Spanish characters like Á, Ü, ¿¡!?, Ññ (since I speak Spanish, this was mandatory, but there are many more good Fonts that don't cover this criteria). [*] I have basic knowledge about typography, but I have read reviews from well educated people in order to ensure quality. Well, here it is the list. As you can see, they are grouped by classification, and a general one in that regard. Some of the Serif and Sans Serif fonts were included in "Headlines" because they had one weight or they had no italics/oblique. [UPDATE] Added notes on some cases, like what the Font can be an alternative of. [UPDATE] Added the number of Fonts.

    Would be appropriate to renove the reference to the Roadmaps in this Topic: Best regards!
  11. The thing I do meanwhile is to use the Ctrl + H command on Windows. That hides the Panels. Best regards!
  12. This has been requested before, and like then, I want to add my vote for it to be implemented. Best regards!

    DXF Export Support

    Well, as in any Project, they have their own idea on how to balance Features / Bugs Corrections / Performance Improvements / Current Features Improvements, and It’s not that they don’t listen, they truly do; put yourself in their position and tell me which Features that we have you would have delayed in order to support this Format. Best regards!

    DXF Export Support

    Basic is a word that has a lot of aspects for many users, even as to the fact that I've never used that File Format in my life, any the same goes for many more. That doesn't mean that I don't want this to be included, it's just that to me, right now, is irrelevant. Best regards!
  15. Is there any chance that we will have a new version of the Roadmap? Best regards!
  16. In my case, I'd prefer them on the Tools panel, it's more comfortable for me. Both options would be great if done by the Dev Team. Best regards!
  17. My suspicion is that internally, Illustrator treats that shape as a Compund (two objects that look like one), so when you clic on the inner outline, it shows you all of the Nodes of that single shape (as it does with any shape/path), and the Alt + Click works the same way Ctrl + A on Designer: it selects all of the Nodes of the Selected Shape (unlike in Illustrator, because there Ctrl + A selects all of the Nodes of all of the Shapes). Anyway, it's a good suggestion, but maybe internally the A Team might need more work than meets the eye. Best regards!
  18. Now that you are talking about this, I’d like to mention a Topic I started some time ago: It could also work for those who want the Print or Save Icons. Best regards!

    Do you mean the “rubber band” Mode that the Pen Tool has? That displays a blue line to show you how the line will looke like before you click. Best regards!

    The Pen Tool has a “Line Mode”. Have you tried it? Best regards!
  21. This video can be worth watching on the Paragraph stuff that I talked about, since it shows some basic Design Principles: Best regards!
  22. Also, as general rule ti identify a Heading Font vs a Display Fonts, would be in the design itself. For exmaple, in the following Screenshot, inside the red square, you can see some design features that allow legibility at small sizes for Source Sans Pro, while Avenir can be used perfectly at a large size (even it works beautifully at small sizes, but I tend to use it for Logos and Headers): There are other things to consider. For example, the X Height and Cap Height. Larger X/Cap Height is better for small text, and vice versa, smaller X/Cap Height works well for larger sizes. See the next example, with Neue Haas Grotesk in its both variants (also notice that at the same point size and weight, the Text variant runs wider): Best regards!
  23. Generally speaking, there are two types of Fonts: Heading Paragraph That means that using a "Heading" Font in small sizes will look bad, and vice versa; "Paragraph" Fonts at larger sizes won't look that well. I, for example, have used Bebas Neue for posters in small pieces of text. And Friz Quadrata was used for the Logo, at a bigger size compared to what I used Bebas Neue for. Now, when sending a file for printing, export as a PDF, and send the Text (Heading/Paragraph) as Vector, either by embbeding the Fonts or by converting it to curves. As a general rule, when using Open Source Fonts (with a SIL License, por example), I embed the text and when using Commercial Fonts, I convert them to curves (since some Foundries won't let you embed the Fonts unles the Printer folks have it Licensed as well). Best regards!

    And then that happened!

    Uhmm. What happened to Tobias Saul Font Pack? Why I don't see it in the Store anymore. Best regards!
