  1. Here's a link to a recent series of fun and colourful retro inspired objects and toys. All done in vector using Affinity Designer. Designer is so great for this kind of work. Cheers Serif! https://www.behance.net/gallery/180858837/Retro-inspired-objects-and-toys-series
  2. Hello, today I've been having fun with the Tone Mapping Persona and I wanted to share these 20 portrait presets with you. Of course, you can use them on anything that is not a portrait, too. Enjoy! Antonio Santos 20 Portrait Presets.aftonemap
  3. Pulled color palette from a MCM photo online. Everything else built with shapes and node tool.
  4. So my good buddy calls me says I need a CD/album cover in like a few days. Apparently, as we artists are the last to learn there's been all sorts of contemplations that the designer is only privy to after significant procrastination. Then come to find out that a late night decision the release is to be under their newly independent label. This has no effect on my process. I've done many graphics for the band, and even played in a side band or two with em. So yes, of course I'm in. The title track is a Burt Bacharach cover, so the idea was to make the 'album' cover appear as a dusted out 70's LP, replete with the 'I've been sitting in Mom's basement' look. Here's the final. This is the first time I've used Affinity Suite exclusively for a project like this. Just wanted to share. The suite works well, glad to do a full project with it. Thanks.
  5. Hi all, I'd like to know how to make a vanishing point grid like you would see on 80s movies and games. Anyone here know how to make it on Affinity Designer?
  6. Hello, 90's kids. This one is for you. In memory of Jason David Frank, the green ranger actor.
  7. Hi all I am relatively newbie when working with the vector images. Affinity Designer got me really inspired. I love vintage audio, among other things. Here's my first try. This was originally meant to be a technical line drawing, but one thing lead happily to another. I will try some challenging shading and texturing next. Thanks Affinity. I really enjoy this software. I wish I only had more time.
  8. One of the first things I created in Designer. I've learned a lot since this, but I still love it.
  9. As usual, I made this for no good reason*. (Who needs a good reason to work with Affinity anyway?) Maybe I've watched to many of those TV shows where they find old junk and clean it up to make money. Whatever; this was made entirely from vectors apart from two jpeg textures applied to the can and one more to the cap. * I just wanted to play with the lettering, and the can seemed a good vehicle for it. But if a job's worth doing . . .
  10. Old soviet radio tech illustration done in Affinity Designer. You can use the illustration under license CC-BY. Some words about it (in russian) in my blog. old-radio.afdesign
  11. My first piece of work done entirely on iPad. Absolute game changer, thanks for all your efforts Serif. It was worth it. (Hi-res of this will end up on instagram later, once I’ve worked out how to reformat for square on iPad)
  12. I made this illustration based on a picture book from the 1960s with illustrations made by Doris Dumler. I tried to recreate it using Designer, usng the Shinznizzle styles for texture and patterns. It was interesting how a convincing mid-century look can be recreated.
  13. Retro cartoon style logo design for a plumbing company. 🙂 🔗 https://metinseven.nl
  14. Hi there, I have 3 branding colors (1 main accent, one near white and one near black). In my video editor I found an option to set a different color for the light and the dark tone independently. So I set 2 of my colors, set the saturation and the intensity each to 50% - voila, loved the result. Now I want to do the same to my photos for branding reasons. So I tried all the options I could find (including the colorize function with the 2 sepia presets) but didn't get really close. How can I do this in Affinity Photo? Thanky ou for your help, Andi PS: My exact colors are vintage white: #FCF9F2 / 252 249 242 (instead of plain white) beige: #DEB887 / 222 184 135 dark brown (instead of plain black): #35211D / 53 33 29.
  15. Hello everyone, I need help in making this logo I tried to use the isometric tool but its kind of false and it didn`t worked out. I attached you a pic maybe someone can help me out! :) Thank you in advance! Kind regards Tony
  16. Here's a recent fun personal iso piece done in Designer. Anyone who grew up in the 70's will be familiar with these 2 crime fighters. Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) and Danny "Danno" Williams (James MacArthur) from the original Hawaii Five-0 TV series from 1968-1980. "Book'em Danno" was McGarrett's signature catch phrase as well as his trademark hair wave. Shown here is the original 68 Mercury.
  17. Hey everyone. This is a piece I finished recently in Affinity Designer. I wanted to create the look and feel of 70s retro scifi illustrations and at the same time I wanted to stay 100% vector. No traces, no bitmaps, no pixel layers. Critique, opinions and questions welcome :D
  18. Pencils, lots of tracing paper, Indian ink and AD. I've created a series of these retro style posters around the theme of the 1960s, modernism, etc. You can see them all here: https://www.facebook.com/scooterola/
  19. Hello there! I want to share with you our latest tutorial for Affinity Designer: Emulating Retro Graphics. Click on the image above or follow THIS LINK to read it. Hope you like it guys! - Enrique
  20. Animated in After Effects admittedly, but all the artwork was created in Affinity Designer. It's all possible, you just need to think about the workflow a little bit. TV_kid.mp4
  21. Sometimes I get these urges ... I just have to give in to them or I'd go mad ... Well, it beats scribbling on bits of paper, but one of these days maybe I'll create something useful!
  22. I'm trying to figure out the best way to recreate this 70's font. The blocking out of the main white shapes is easy enough, but I'm struggling to find a way to accurate recreate the thinner black lines of this font. When I draw it free hand, it just looks off, as human error creeps in and the bezier curves just don't look right. I've tried expanding stroke, then adjusting the stroke on the expanded stroke layer, but it's still not right. Any advice?
  23. Hello fellow Affinity aficionados, in continuing my scooter series for Redbubble, here is my second retro styled scooter/travel poster. This time a Lambretta featuring a young couple scootering about Paris in the fall. All done in Designer 1.6 Check it out on my Redbubble site as well. https://www.redbubble.com/people/kevincreative/works/29498216-retro-lambretta-scooter?c=706027-wheels
  24. Hey all, in continuing my scooter series for Redbubble, here is a retro styled Vespa/travel poster look featuring a scootering lady about Rome. Lambretta will be next in the series. All done in Designer 1.6 Check it out on my Redbubble site as well. https://www.redbubble.com/people/kevincreative/works/29083512-retro-vespa-scooter?asc=u&ref=recent-owner
  25. I dunno where these guys came from, but I wouldn't mess with them if I were you. Especially her on the right.
