  1. Not a question at all, but I can't post in the «News» forum so I'm posting this here. A friend told me about a John Siracusa podcast where he talks about Affinity Designer (among other apps). Siracusa, for those of you who don't know the guy, is a programmer but he dabbles into pretty much anything so he will talk about AD as a programmer/developer/UI guy. Here's the link (it starts around the 81:00 minute mark with a prologue/intro into the subject): http://atp.fm/episodes/132 Short but pretty interesting. I suppose that there will be a surge in demo downloads and users becaus
  2. Was asked by some theatre kids at my college to make a poster for an upcoming show... Where else should I turn but to Affinity Designer!
  3. My first attempt within AD. I used only the brush tool along with the different colours. I didn't have a drawing tablet to hand, hence the shaky lines. Let me know what you think? Thanks to Lee and Gareth for helping - I'm definitely a newb :)
  4. My vector graphic “Luna 2" edited by AP :) http://b-bertuleit.de/luna-2/
  5. In AD's Pixel Persona the same keystroke is applied to 2 different tools: Pixel Tool & Paint Brush Tool. Why is that? Shouldn't each have its own letter rather than having to toggle back and forth?
  6. I am guessing that this is something else that hasn't yet been implemented; but I'm wondering: is there a way to change the colour or opacity of the grid? It's not easy to distinguish where the lines are on a light background, and I've only so far had luck with easily distinguishing the grid lines on a dark background. It would be REALLy helpful to be able to change the colour and opacity of grid lines in this app! -_-
  7. I am wondering if Guides can be locked and unlocked in Affinity Designer (as can be done with Illustrator). So far, I have not found any way to do this. ... help?
  8. I am working on pattern design and want to know if there is an offset filter in Affinity Designer. I know you can offset in Photo but I need to be working with vector images, not raster images. If theres no offset filter, is there another way to offset images? If not, is this something that could possibly be in a future update for Designer? The program is great and would love for it to replace Illustrator!
  9. Hi folks, hello Serif-Team, I need to export my work as PDF/X (3), many advertising agencies, printing companies or clients ask for it. Will Affinity Designer support this important format/settings? If so, when? ;)
  10. This was originally designed by me in InDesign/Photoshop, ISSUU link here: https://issuu.com/jasonproductsltd/docs/crgnz0815_nz___australia___asia_201?e=0 I have produced just the front cover in the latest Affinity Designer Beta ( — better file compression in the AD file & much improved PDF export settings, great work devs! :D Oops, I'll have to share the AD file later with a link! When full pre-press features come in, it will be great! In the mean time, I made the canvas size 20mm larger than the A4 trim size to accommodate my hand drawn trim marks with a 'bleed'
  11. Hey there, I ran in this problem a few times now. Every now and then, when I'm in a hurry or just want to quit the app, I use the shortcut ⌘+S for saving and right after that the ⌘+Q combination to quit the app and go on. But sometimes I'm stuck with this screen. The app doesn't quit and stays open like that with the progress-bar. Menus are fully accessible and responding, except for quitting. I can open files via ⌘+O, but the little »Save document as« progress-bar stays there. Closing the opened document via ⌘+W is no problem, but the progress-bar will stay vis
  12. When using the paintbrush, clicking on the canvas doesn't make a dot. I have to scribble the mouse/stylus around in order for a mark to appear. I'm guessing it has something to do with a smoothing effect (the same thing that causes a delay when writing with my stylus before the marks start appearing on the page), but I have no idea what settings to play with in order to adjust either of those (the delay & inability to draw a "dot") situations. Any ideas, forum participants? :huh:
  13. 15 minute Challenge. Can you do it? easy.. Remember to Keep it simple (KISS).. ​Source code:Infinity Logo Design.afdesign Enjoy....
  14. I'm curious as to how each of the items affects the applications' performance. There's no explanation in the help files. RAM Usage Limit: I notice this can be dragged up to ~64 GB (which is more than 5 times how much RAM my Mac has...); does lessening the amount keep the application running smoothly... or do I need to open it up to the maximum amt of RAM I have so that it doesn't get "bottled up"? Disk Usage Warning Limit: This one's a bit confusing--does the application warn you if there's less than the set amount when you try to save a document? Again, the max is set at 64GB, even though my
  15. Hey guys, I am working with this psd file from which I need to export some layers (rasters). I kind of manage to do it by selecting those images, copying them, pasting somewhere else, exporting... This is not a pro way to do it I guess ;) I there any more gentle way of exporting psd layers via Affinity Designer? All I need is to select an element, and save it to a separate .png or.jpg file. Any help would me much appreciated, Thanks in advance, Greg
  16. Hello I tried to draw a toothpaste that I have used. I hope you like it. Outline is... https://youtu.be/8oLCbe4nqyc
  17. Here's a small part of a larger panel I'm working on for a client. Took me a fair while but I'm really happy with the results, all thanks to the power of AD! George
  18. Affinity Designer rasterizes smart objects placed into PSD files from Ilustrator/other vector editor, so these objects are no longer vector ones.
  19. After importing PSD file with text frames with overflowed text, this overflowed text is visible outside of text frame boundaries. Photoshop shows only text which is inside the text frame, not outside of it.
  20. So, I just wanted to share a real world application case where I used Affinity designer for professional client work. I am not going to win any design awards on this stuff. What is most important to my client is that their message stands out. The challenge I face with the tech industry is making anything look remotely interesting. Maybe one day I get a chance to do something for apple.... ha, yeah right :P All design and concept was created and developed by me. These campaigns will be running for the next 4 weeks in NY city I have two other digital billboard locatio
  21. I am so sad! I worked so hard on this vector face and then added the quote which inspired me, only to see at the end that my document size was way to small. So now when I export the image it looks awful compared to what I see in Designer - oh well, lesson learned. I wanted to share it anyway because it is such a good quote. And hopefully someone can tell me how I can rescue the vector part (face).
  22. I hope you like it. https://youtu.be/wY7CTR6eOEk
  23. I purchased Designer after having purchased (and becoming quite impressed with) Photo. But I didn’t need it - I cannot draw; I thought it might be good for adding text or perhaps some simple graphic to a photo sometime and they were both on sale so it was almost buy one get one free. But seeing the work of others here created a hankering in me to at least try to use this program to see if there were any hidden ability (or unresolved childhood inclination for drawing) - so I did. I have now finally finished a self-inflicted learning project (and not a moment too soon since my ‘vacation’ end
  24. Hey guys, I recently made a logo design for myself in affinity designer. I will mostly use it for my ident on behance, twitter and youtube. Any thoughts on this one? For a closer look and different versions check out my behance: www.behance.net/yannikw
  25. Hey guys, I created a spotify redesign lately and just wanted to share it! for a better overview check out the behance project here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/28672787/Spotify-Redesign-Flat-Design would love to get some opinions! :)
