Hi, I'm Angie Taylor.
I'm a motion graphic designer who has been working with Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects for over 20 years. I am increasingly frustrated with Adobe software and their subscription model so have been looking for an alternative for a long time. I love Affinity Designer, it's so intuitive, fast and responsive. However there are a few ommissions that make it difficult for me to create the style I use in Affinity Designer.
Here's an example where I show how I work;
Here's an example that shows the basics of these tools;
I use a combination of the Blob Brush tool and the Eraser tool in AI to "sculpt"my vector shapes. It gives the artwork a hand-drawn effect and it's a really creative way to work. Are there any plans to introduce these tools in Affinity Designer? I also use the Reshape tools and Symbol tools a lot and wonder is these are on the planned schedule at all?
Thanks for creating some great software!
All the best,
