This Saturday the Tour De France starts in Brussels and races trough my hometown (Overijse, Belgium).
I made a huge banner (20 meter x 2,5 meter) completely in Designer.

More of the designs and details can be seen on my website: https://www.willempirquin.be/portfolio/tour-de-france-druivenstreek/
(Also, 90% of all work on my website is made in Designer).

@Willem Pirquin You made some very nice illustrations like the one for MiWa


I gave up using Designer for hobby use - a "professional" vector drawing program without actual vector features. Customers waiting for five years in vain is more than any company can ask for. Maybe if Affinity Designer 2.0 gets real and advanced vector features I can use it. Until then... I am a customer, a potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion. Currently I am slowly finishing a project I started in Designer.

Further... give up and please hire an UX (usability designer), Serif. It is how professional software is made in this century.

Could you say something about what happened between you producing some sort of electronic output file (or files) (what was it (or them) please?) and the finished banner appearing in public as shown in the image please? That is, how did that huge banner get produced given the file or files and how did it go from being produced to being on the wall. Does it go in a museum after the event takes place? Is there to be a video of the race leader riding past it?

Hi William,

Thanks for reaching out! I delivered one pdf-file (completely vector, all fonts expanded, scale 1:1) straight from Affinity Designer to the company that produced the mesh-banner. They didn't call me, so I assume they had no problems with the file.

The tour only passes tomorrow, but I noticed that the council of Overijse already replaced the banner with a new one to announce the next town-event on national television, so there won't be any pictures of racers with the banner in the background (I really hoped for it myself!).
