Affinity Designer for Beginners

Video Description

Affinity Designer is the new, affordable design software that can replace your overpriced Adobe Creative Suite. It's built for designers, by designers.

What Will I Learn?

In this course you will learn how the Affinity Designer user interface works, where all its features are, and learn about the dramatic improvements you'll get versus Adobe software. Along the way you will work on real world projects rather than simply going through each tool and learning how it works. Instead, you will use those tools to create projects and learn in a hands-on environment.


The projects you will create include:

  • Graphic Illustration
  • Logo Creation
  • Icon Design
  • Combining Images
  • You will also learn how to export your work for web, print and app development.
