    Always nice to see the physical copy. This just arrived in the post, the top book is our latest children's picture book which was just released on Amazon... All 3 books were created in Affinity Designer, looking forward to the transition over to Publisher for the next book...

    Ohhh My! It's been an incredible journey so far and it's only getting better. I'm super excited to announce that the 3rd book is finally here and available on Amazon. Learn to count with Strawberry Monkey and his friends. Your own cheeky little monkeys will love the bright and colourful pictures as we learn to count, discover colours & understand shapes. So, if you have any cheeky little monkeys go grab you copy below! @MattP @Chris B Get your copy here: 123 with Strawberry Monkey

    Say hello to the cutest little characters in the preschool world! This project has certainly been a labour of love and I'm loving the development of the characters!

    How to create a business card - Affinity Designer

    Thanks Garry, you're right there have been a number of changes since I made this. Unfortunately I've stopped making tutorials for reasons I can't say, shame really as I really enjoyed them. Looking forward to the 1,7 release which will help a lot, the date on the original post is 2015, so hopefully it would be an indication that is is an older tutorial. Thanks for the suggestion on flagging it somehow, I'm sure I can edit the original post.

    How to create a business card - Affinity Designer

    Thanks for the feedback, it was a number of years ago I made this, in my early days of using the app. I haven't made any tutorials for a number of years now.

    I’ve been working away on my characters for my preschool/early years project. It’s developing nicely and I’ve made a lot of changes including getting rid of some characters that I wasn’t happy with. There are also a few new faces! Head over to mystrawberrymonkey.com to see the rest of this exciting project. If you have kids/grandkids there are some free games and activities for them to enjoy!

    What else do you do on a rainy day but stay inside and have some fun! It's been an interesting journey so far and a lot of learns, three of the characters in this image were not around when I first started this project. Something I did learn along the way and made a conscience decision to change was the number of male characters, not sure why I had so many, it just seemed to be my default. Being aware that it's important to include female characters in the preschool arena especially as we live in a male dominated world has changed my approach to this project. Stay tuned for some more exciting updates as I continue to document the journey. Whilst you're waiting don't forget to check out the website for loads of preschool games and activities, mystrawberrymonkey.com all created in Affinity Designer of course! Allan Thompson
