  1. 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
  2. Hi i just made bird logo with affinity designer ipad. Timelapse:
  3. Hi! Total beginner to Affinity Designer here (a bit of Photoshop experience in the past).

  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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?). ^-^
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. Hello ! -) This is the brand logo of cameraman and soundman. Your opinions ? Thanks !
  14. Two Last names as a brand called B&B
  15. The first one is for the Instagram page @humansonbikesnyc. The owner is a big Pink Floyd fan, so looking at some of the P.F. art, The Dark Side of The Moon was instantly the source of inspiration. I'm sure we all know that iconic cover. In my design, I took the yellow street lines on NYC and used them in place of the ray of light, the bicycle wheel takes the place of the pyramid and the rainbow's place is taken by the cycling championship flag colors. My idea was that cycling in NYC (I myself am also a cyclist/messenger) is like being on a giant course. The streets of the city become components of a massive velodrome (a track where bicycle races are held). So, the bicycle (the prism) converts the street (rays of white light) in a race track of sorts on a massive velodrome, which is why the championship flag colors (the rainbow) come out. Whether it's a crit, and alley cat, delivery, messwork, it's all part of the rat race we are all riding to and from, day in and day out. I call this design, Dark Side of The Road (because, well, the asphalt and whatnot). The logo for bike messenger company/collective Street Kings NYC (@streetkingsnyc) was already in use before I was ask to clean it up. The founder, Kid Ill, requested to keep the same cyclist image but he wanted the lines to look sharper. The original was done haphazardly and the lines had no sense of weight to them, they were a fixed with. I just make the ends of the lines come to a point, adjusted the riders body a bit but kept the design true to the original. The shield and sword I had tweaked a bit more. Originally there were no swords (the swords were requested). Also, the original design was the rider with NYC in a stencil font. I opted for a more "royal" looking font for NYC (I forgot the name of the font, if anyone knows, please tell me, thanks) and added the banner with 2012 in Roman numerals (I think it looks better than just "Est. 2012) I added the original design at the end. Let me know what ya'll think.
  16. Hello everyone www.livinnature.eu is my blog about lifestyle I love using Affinity tools to create my designs I would love it if you can check out my blog and give me some feedbacks to improve. I am a newbie in web designing. The website is few days old. I would love any kind of suggestions. Thank you Liveinnature.
  17. Hi all, I'm a complete noob to Designer so was looking to pick your brains as to how I would go about recreating the attached logo? Any tips or ideas would be gratefully appreciated.
  18. Hey guys! Today I played around with the displace live filter. It’s a very nice and powerful tool to simulate folds of cloths, but also cracks in walls (like shown in one of the official tutorial videos by Affinity), grainy paper textures and so on … This is my first »tutorial« … ever. If you may call it one. So forgive me for eventual mistakes. Though It’s pretty much self-explanatory and not that hard to follow, I think. ;) Like I captioned the video: basically you want to create a separate image with a greyscale profile (at least that’s how I do it), reduced noise and texture plus a good balance between high, low and mid values. Grey fabrics work best if you want to change the colour afterwards. Maybe this helps, have fun playing around with different backgrounds! ;) Cheers Dennis
  19. I can't seem to be able to split text in Affinity Designer? From what I can gather it's only shapes that can be divided? Is there a way this can be achieved? I've attached an example that I had to call my boyfriend and ask him to do this on Adobe Illustrator for me as I couldn't achieve this design like I was hoping to on Affinity. Is there any sign that this could be a feature in the near future?
  20. So, this guy is a young twitch streamer I have played siege with for a while and he wanted a new logo for his channel. He really liked Shrouds S logo icon and wanted a similar effect with a G. I think i came pretty close with this iteration and as always enjoy your feedback. Red was the requested color and I solved it by using negative space with a red outline because the inverse "looks like a muppet" according to people around me. Twitch: gilleyg edit: I redrew the icon G 8 times in case anyone is curious. This is my 8th iteration.
  21. I am slowly finding tools I had in Illustrator and using those in Affinity, This has been a fun experience. This is a logo for a company in GA. The kanji is the simple symbol for dragon and the client wanted a sword in the design. The sword took me while to incorporate but once I saw it I think it worked out. I also made a dragon illustration for the design -- Logo is vector and dragon sketch is pixel.
  22. Hi, so I have quite a strange issue. I was making a logo for my friends winery. I painted it and then digitalized it so she would get vector to use right. I was just in Designer persona for vectors using brushes from this library. The issue is that when I am in the affinity designer the logo itself looks ready, with transparent background etc. but when I export it to eps, white backgrounds behind the shapes appear. I was doing a little research, ticked all the boxes which was supposed to be ticked nothing helped. Then I tried to put the bad eps file back to Affinity and see what is the problem. What I found out is that some of the curves changed to images. When I tried to delete the "white squares" it will automatically delete part of the logo and it is just such a mess. I was wondering if that is because I though I used vector brushes but it somehow transferred to pixel brushes? The thing is it took me a lots of time to find out how to digitalize the painting itself and it was painted with watercolors which was hard to imitate. I was so happy when I finally found out that I can make it in affinity with the vector brushes but now I cant export it. My friend will use the logo in a big size to be printed on a wood. To understand how it was made maybe it will be clear why this is happening for somebody else. I used curves to make the outlines of all the shapes than filled them with color and then I used a mask layer for the filled ones, where I was using vector brushes to imitate the "texture" so It would not be so flat just with a plain color and look like it was painted. I tried to change the option as well for the eps but it resulted in loosing the strokes sizes. i tried to put it in Illustrator as well but the same thing appearing. If somebody knows what to do with it that would be awesome. UPDATE: I tried to just basic shape and the same mask with brush as I used in the logo and it has the same problem. When I export it and put it back it has the white background and it is rasterized. Second option to export it without rasterizing at all results in that the used watercolor vector brush is just black.. So that means it has problem export the vector brushes like vector and it rasterizes them - which i do not get, when it is a VECTOR brush. Or maybe I am idiot and understand the base of vector brushes badly? Here some pictures so you can see what I meant. This is finished logo for export All the layers are curves in this EPS version put back in Aff - curves became images This is to show you how was it made - basic shape filled with basic color and then mask with just brush stroke to make the texture This is the last option I tried but it resulted in the image below - all the stroke sizes, option, brushes deleted.
