  1. so its been a while since I've been on here so hello again As you can see I have been busy but I bring these to all of you they all have been processed by affinity photo so thanks for another great year with an awesome product, although I've been experiencing a lot of lag and performance drops lately but I still love the program non the less. some of the photos I wanted to show didn't upload maybe it was the file type. a lot my work is freelance, If I do any hired work it's mostly editorial or marketing.. thanks & enjoy!!

    a logo i made for myself

    so my logo is inspired by 2 things. star trek and batman. it my initials A.R if you couldn't tell lol. image isn't as sharp as i'd like it, i was editing an older image i'll have to redo it eventually Kinda like the noise feature on the program so i tried it out. not really sure what it is meant for any explanation would be cool.

    3d program?

    Could a 3d program be in the near future <3...
  8. So my question is, for those who use external monitors. what is your opinion on affinity used on a uhd monitor vs a 4k. is it worth the transition? does your art apear different in color? did you have to retouch any finished work? I currently use a 1080x1920 60hrtz acer monitor. i love this monitor. i run off of a mid 2014 mac 13 retina. which at it's sharpest resolution the mac says its projecting "like" its at 1680x1050: factor in the retina concept that is 1 pixel split into quarter pixels .... well you do the math lol. it's something like 50 extra lines of pixles per square inch, but i digress... Unfortunately my model doesnt project in 4k even though the ration suggest it would naturally. so im considering picking up one that does, and a monitor to accompany it. Any suggestion or feed back? Thanks.
  9. So affinity world.... for those of you who do home printing. what do you look for in a home printer, I am in the market for a good wide format printer. that can print 11x17 maybe a smidge larger. but for sure has to be able to print on 80lbs weight paper. 


    Hopefully some of you has experience in this area. I have a few in mind but would mind hearing about some other models if anyone has a high quality laser print

      I don't really have experience with printing, but I remember having a discussion of the difference between RGB, sRGB, and CMYK. Since I don't actually print, or for the rare times I do from a basic Canon, I actually work in sRGB. If I have to, I make a copy of CMYK, but it is good to have a copy of both. The different printers have different color values. I previously didn't understand why people do work in CMYK since I always found it to lack color, and then I realized it was unexplained to me in college that commercial printing is not the same as home printing. From one of the discussions here, it was explained that CMYK is good for "rotary press" printers, whereas printing the same file from a home printer would not have the same quality. So since you are looking for a printer for marketing purposes, I will "assume" rotary press is what you need.


      As it is obvious, I am not in the market. I use Affinity for personal use, but I am trying to move up to starting a business. As Patrick mentioned, it might be hard for people to catch this, but a new topic might give you more information.

    New Years Eve Flyer made with Affinity Designer

    OOO This is more my area expertise. Hello By the way. Easy to read, at a glance information. the thing about flyers is that it stays in someones hands no longer that 5 seconds. thats all the time you need to get the information out.' this is as simple as it gets for flyers. its not a bad flyer, clean lines, thick font. I would have asked for actual photos of last years event if there was any and integrate those photos along with the headlining dj. especially if he is not as known as your bigger dj's. im assuming the names with the star are names of performers? or location? you got the cover charge, what about start time of the event and address? thats about it. looks like a heavy box. I know the pain lol
