I'm Antonio Tejada, a lifelong Mac user with specific interest in UX (usability, in particular interaction design) and localization, with a background in Mac technical support, and a hobby photographer.
Having supported many clients in the graphic arts, I've seen the rise and fall of Quark, FreeHand's sad demise at the altar of Adobe, the various failed attempts at Photoshop competition (xRes, anyone?), etc. There's long been a need for viable competition for Photoshop and Illustrator in the pro market, and I think this might be it!
As for me, other than user interface mockups, I'm not much of a graphic artist. :P
If you guys ever have questions about Mac UI design or localization issues, feel free to drop me a line! Best of luck with the Affinity apps!
