Is that a hardware store? I love hardware stores.

It's a hardware store that tried to be funny for ages with a (to my ears) very annoying 'audio logo'.

As we are at that: what would Serif Affinity sound like? :o

I wish Serif would come up with something more original :)

They have very good connections to creative people as seen on Spotlight.
It's just that graphic design, photo editing and page layout are a very quiet task. At least APub has the option to open up in the sound direction :)

I think they should do something to help make all three of the app's icons identify them more distinctly as Affinity products.

Maybe they could make the overall shape more like an "A", or... I don't know... a triangle perhaps, instead of a simple square?

The square shape of the logo is caused by requirements of the Microsoft Windows App Store ... there was a post about this a couple month ago. But I'm sure it's possible to come up with something less generic, even with a fixed base shape.

The Photo and Designer icons are quite clever, with the pencil tip and the camera lens, but publisher (I guess it's supposed to be spread out pages or a book spine or something?) looks really uninteresting.

My Hard-Bop recordings get played loud during my work time.

Even Office Icons aren't squares:
