  1. Hi everyone! I recorded this quick tutorial on how to draw the Tik Tok logo in Affinity Designer. I hope you guys find it interesting.
  2. I believe the problem is in the curves, present inside the logo. The logo was taken from a file created in Illustrator. Can anyone help me export the file in svg, png and pdf. Without losing color? Artelac Complete.afdesign
  3. Hi, i tried to make an updated facebook and whatsapp logo for a friend. I completely remade it in Designer. No matter how i export it, it looks messy on mobile and little size screens. I tried jpeg and png with different sizes. My export setting were: PNG-24 and 300x300 as well as 600x600 and bigger. Bigger makes it way worse. I followed the guidlines given by facebook support pages. But nothing seems to help. I know text on logos is a bit supoptimal, but that outcome is to bad for my taste. Do i have to change settings on my side and in Designer or does it have something to do with facebook compression? Any help is appreciated. Greetings =) Facebook on Desktop Whatsapp/facebook on mobile logo_source.afdesign
  4. Is it possible for a bitmap to follow a path? For example, I have a vector of a 2D string and I need a repeat logo to follow it as a path. I'm not sure how I can do this without manually editing the perspective of each logo, which I don't have time for. I'm really hoping this is can be done via bitmaps, but any suggestion is welcome!

  6. For a few days now I've been playing around with layer effects and some procedural filters – it's super fun and I love the results it can generate! This is the result this morning, based on my own logo and 100% pure Affinity Photo magic, and (except for the very last couple of steps) nondestructive. Maybe I'll release a macro for this sometime, if I can manage to squeeze it into a clean sequence. It'll work with almost any kind of base – images, texts, vector layers. This is what the base result will look like after the macro is applied, everything else is layer effects (and a background texture):
  7. Hey Affinity community! Over the last few days I've been tinkering with an alternative app icon for JOEY, an Android client for Reddit. I originally saw a post on Reddit where a user presented their attempt at an alternative symbol. I asked them if I could try my hand at it and refine it a bit and they agreed. These icons are the result and they were quite happy with the outcome. (Please click the preview for more details.) Any constructive criticism is welcome!
  8. Recently I was wondering how much I could improve Slacks logo. this is what I came up with. Essentially this is a project I did for fun. Edit: updated photos to slightly different Icon that scales better. See the full project here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/156277469/Slack-Rebrand-Mockup We combine 4 chat bubbles to get the icon. And again, you can see the full project here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/156277469/Slack-Rebrand-Mockup
  9. Hello all. This is a mockup for a YouTube channel I am working on every so often. Green is representative of nature along with some other things which is the reason for the color. If you would like to see more logos and branding I have done, they can be seen here https://www.behance.net/Statement-Design
  10. I am trying to design a logo for a site based around renewable energy, so I thought maybe a sun and (UK) electric plug combined could work, ie to symbolise electricity generated by the sun. I am quite please with its simplicity but I have a feeling that although the sun seems obvious, the plug could be mistaken for something else, e.g. a grand piano! Doesn't seem to help even when rotated. Bear in mind this is for a UK site, so the three pin plug is appropriate. I'm currently working on an alternative with a lightbulb, but I'd still like to make the plug work if possible Any help appreciated, thanks
  11. Hi i just made bird logo with affinity designer ipad. Timelapse:
  12. Hi! Total beginner to Affinity Designer here (a bit of Photoshop experience in the past). I need some help walking through the steps of converting some handwritten text to a vector(?), and then smoothing out from there. Trying to create a logo! Any help would be much appreciated - I'm lost! Thank you!!

  14. Hey All! Been working on a template for exporting logo files for clients and thought I'd share it here so we can maybe work on improving it together? FILE: Logo Exporter Template CMYK V1.afdesign The idea is that the export persona is already set up to create folders and files for the different parts of the logo and the different colour models. What works: Folders and colour gamuts are exported easily and swiftly (more on this below) It's easy to resize the artboards to fit a new logo. It saves me a generous amount of time! Cheaper than other plugins for other apps with similar functionalities. 😉 -- A few things I'm struggling that could do some help with: 1. File naming The naming convention I am after is the following: "clientname-logoelement-colour-gamut.extension" I managed pretty much everything, by renaming the artboards, and manually updating the export slices. But I can't find a way to replace "clientname" with the name of the afdesign file. 2. Colur gamuts / modes When working form a RGB afdesign file there are limitation on exporting certain files to CMYK - for example EPS only export in the original afdesign file setup. But when working from a CMYK base file (like the attached) the file conversion options are more friendly. A NOTE ON THIS: Although we all know that is best practice to adjust these conversions manually I'm trying to make something that will save me time. Perhaps there is b better way to automate this with the use or symbols or global colours - I'm yet to discover (new to affinity here) 3. Symbols / global colours I'm not very versed on these yet, so would appreciate any suggestions on how using these can help the exporting process, colour settings. Have a go at using it and hope it saves you some time! J.- PS: Dear moderator, if this belongs on a different thread please advice accordingly.
  15. Hi there! Well, more than a legend in a good sense, the first try of Microsoft to bring Internet Explorer to the "present" back then. I must say, I always liked this kind of Icons, so, I had a little time to play a little and try to reproduce Internet Explorer 7's Symbol: May I will do Edge next... If anyone is interested, I attached the source file. Hope you all are doing well. Best regards! Internet Explorer 7.afdesign
  16. Recently dealt with a small logo project for a barber. Was a cheap job and needed to be done 'soon'. Below is the progress... - 1. This was the original logo, not 100% clear on the 'MOS' initials, but this is what they wanted adapting. Remove the lion and add some scissors. The colour was also preferred to keep (a kind of 'gold'.) - 2. This was my first pass, thinking that the staggered 'MOS' wasn't clear, I went inline and moved the scissors over the 'O'. Traditionally, for a fairly simple logo I've always made sure the silhouette of it reads well before introducing colour. - 3. Unfortunately my initial idea was 'too far away' from the originally produced logo. This was my next attempt which was signed-off. I feel it's a fair representation of the original brief and proof that sometimes doing what you think is right is sometimes wrong. - I thought this would be worth sharing as it was a learning experience for me using Designer. Especially merging, splitting and cleaning up nodes (so many nodes) and the like.
  17. I am Adobe Illustrator user from many years and using Affinity Designer and Photo from beta but never made logo from basic to finish in Affinity. I was previously made basic vector in Adobe illustrator and then put some colour and gradient in Affinity Designer. oday i thought i sjould give a try to make this logo concept all in Affinity and i made basic drawing in Affinity Designer and then used Affinity Photo brushes to paint. Hope you like my first try
  18. Hello :) Not quite sure how to explain my problem, but here goes: I am working on a logo design and I used some curves and some type to make it. I would like to make it different colors, so I can present it to my client. The problem is, that I have to select all the curves and change the outline color for them, and then select the type (which I already converted to curves) and change the fill-colour. Is there any way that I can make the logo into a cohesive vector-file, so that I can select the whole thing and change the colour? This would also be helpful for exporting it, so the client doesn't have to deal with this issue, but can just change the color of it as needed? Thanks in advance! I'd really appreciate the help!
  19. Designed this business card and logo for a small indie studio that I am currently a part of. We wanted to use the one with rounded corners, but had to cut down on costs by going with sharp ones. Got to say that the features added in 1.9 were absolutely invaluable when designing ideas and creating the final version. The Contour Tool and Linked Layers in particular. The former helped a lot with adjusting text and the shapes of the logo and the latter helped a lot with repeating patterns like the waves at the top and elements across multiple artboard iterations of the final design. I really hope Linked Layers get fully implemented into Designer as well, because this feature is incredible when working with vector shapes (symmetrical vectors anyone?). ^-^
  20. Hi, This is my first attempt at using Affinity Designer and have come to a hurdle; I am trying to edit the text on an existing logo that was created in AI. I cannot seem to be able to select the text, is this maybe because it has been rasterised? Is there a way I can do this please? Thanks.
  21. Hello again! I was given a hand-drawn logo to make into a digital EPS. I used the pen tool to create a black outline. Now I want to fill in with colour and some gradients, but I won't let me. I searched but couldn't find a solution. I've included screenshots to show you the layers(a few of them). Thanks so much!
  22. Hello ! -) This is the brand logo of cameraman and soundman. Your opinions ? Thanks !
