Cheers Ronnie, work has been very busy lately, so I haven't been too active in the forum. Been doing a lot of 3d work as well. 

 

Looks like you have been busy too.

Hello, Everyone!

 

I am so glad to be back and to see this community grow as big with so much talent as it has in such a short time!

 

I just wanted to inform everyone that this course has recently been updated to reflect the current 1.5.5 version of Affinity Designer. If you have taken my previous course then you find new content covering features that were not available in version 1.4. I am currently in the middle of updating my Affinity UX Tools course, so stay tuned for that. if you are new to my Affinity and are looking for a course that easy and approachable then look no further.  Also, in my signature you find a link to receive a 30-day free trial to Lynda.com entire library which is plenty of time to watch my course and a few others. You can cancel at any time within the 30-Day!

 

Enjoy and if you have any questions feel free to ask me I am more than happy to be of help.

 

Oh and one more thing this course gives love to Mac and Windows user alike. :)
