Microwaveable rice with Herbes de Provence

Please tell us more about the project, William, and about the posted image in particular. Although it could have been produced in Affinity Designer or Publisher, the thought bubble looks more like a ‘QuickThought’ parametric shape from DrawPlus or PagePlus. I can see that the typeface is Garamond or one of its close relatives.

I produced the artwork in Affinity Designer.

I produced two A4 PDF documents landscape formar, one monochrome with black lines and text and white fill of the shapes, one in colour.

The posted image is a one-fifth linear scale png graphic produced for this thread.

I started by going to the Affinity Designer "quickshapes" but found there was no "thinks bubble".

I constructed the picture using the Cloud Tool and the Ellipse Tool.  I adjusted the size of the ellipses so that they are circles of a chosen size. I like using the approach of setting numbers in the Transform pnel, I use the Transform panel a lot for various projects.

Likewise, I tend to select colours using numbers rather than selecting a colour from an area of graded colours.

The font is EB Garamond, from Google fonts. It is the same font as I used for the code numbers in the images in the signs for art galleries thread.





Until December 2022, using a Lenovo laptop running Windows 10 in England. From January 2023, using an HP laptop running Windows 11 in England.
