Anybody using Affinity Designer for package design?

Recommended Posts



I don't know much about package design and the requirements there, only that professional software (e.g. esko, Packz) seem to be PDF based, with PDF beeing the prepress format used to exchange dielines and designs and for print if I'm not mistaken.


Is it possible to produce such PDF deliverables with AD that I could send to a manufacturer for my product packaging? Is here anybody with experience in the field? What would you do?


What I have in mind is something like this:


The manufacturer send me dielines of his packaging options as PDF, and I design the package in AD, and send him the result. I'm a bit worried about coming across as unprofessional if it turns out that the tools inside AD can't meet the industry requirements.
