The design revolution

Optimized for the latest tech on Mac, Windows and iPad, Affinity Designer is setting the new industry standard in the world of design. Best in class for creating concept art, print projects, logos, icons, UI designs, mock-ups and more, it’s already the top choice of thousands of professional illustrators, web designers, game developers and other creatives who love its silky-smooth combination of vector and raster design tools.

Serious business

No bloat, no gimmicks, just all the tools you need, implemented how you always dreamed.  Affinity Designer is a stripped back, pro-end workhorse that will always get your job done.

Fast and glorious

Affinity Designer was created to thrive on the electric pace of the latest computing hardware.  Live, Responsive and incredibly fluid, it's simply a joy to use.

  • Pan and zoom at 60fps
  • Live gradients, effects and adjustments
  • Real time blend mode previews
  • All transforms and curve edits previewed live

As complex as you like

The engine behind Affinity Designer is built to handle huge documents so you can be confident in adding all those tiny details without any compromise to performance.

  • Optimised for documents of any complexity
  • Handle 1000s of objects with no lag
  • Organise with layer groups and colour tagging
  • Live outline view for accurate selections

Vector or raster, you decide

With a single click, switch between full featured vector and raster workspaces.  Just think about what that means... add raster brush texture to your illustrations, edit single pixels on icons, mask and add grain to your crisp vectors, enclose and clip pixel layers.  This is true creative freedom and the possibilities are endless.

Timesaving functions

The UI has been created to give you the best user experience possible so you can spend more time creating. Timesaving tools such as Select Same and Select Object allow you to efficiently match attributes or select all objects of a certain type for easy editing, while studio presets for the UI layout allow you to save your favourite workspace setups for different tasks and easily switch between them.

Any device, anywhere

Whether on Windows, Mac or iPad the features and file format are exactly the same.  This gives complete freedom to seamlessly working across your, (or your team's) different devices with the same file.

Colour control

Work in RGB or LAB colour spaces - even up to 32-bits per channel.  Plus if you're designing for print, pantone support, end-to-end CMYK and ICC colour management are built in as standard.

Rock solid vector tools

Affinity Designer is full of tools meticulously developed for achieving high productivity, while maintaining 100 percent accurate geometry.

  • Comprehensive vector toolset
  • The best pen & node tool available
  • Pencil and brush stabilistation
  • Non-destructive boolean operations
  • Powerful contour tool

Powerful contour tool

Effortlessly add a contour to any object or increase the width of single open curves. It's an easy way to create abstract shapes or an offset path - great for various architectural purposes or for making a logo or print file for a sticker.

Advanced grids and guides

The options you have for setting up grids and guides is almost unlimited. Whether it’s a standard grid pattern, or full isometric with multiple planes, you have full control over spacing, sub divisions, gutters, angles and more.

  • Column and page guides
  • Isometric grids and planes
  • Auto-alignment tools
  • Pixel snapping and alignment

One million+ percent zoom

This is what we mean by power.  From the beginning Serif developed an engine to work to floating point accuracy.  What does this mean? 1,000,000% zoom!

Unlimited artboards

Layout all your screens, pages, menus and other items in a single project across any number of artboards.  Export artboards, or any individual elements in your designs, with a single click.

  • Create artboards of any size
  • Choose from preset device sizes
  • Output full artboards or elements in any format
  • Export at 1x, 2x and 3x resolution in one operation

Linked symbols

Symbols allow you to include unlimited instances of the same base object across your project.  Edit one, and the rest update instantly.  It's easy to create multiple versions of symbols with some attributes detached, or even have symbols within symbols to allow some really innovative ways to speed up your workflow.

Live pixel preview

Pixel perfect designs are assured by viewing your work in pixel preview mode.  This allows you to view vectors in both standard and retina resolution, giving you a completely live view of how every element of your design will export.

Sophisticated typography

Whether working with artistic text for headlines, or frames of text for body copy, you can add advanced styling and ligatures with full control over leading, kerning, tracking and more.  At any time convert your text to curves to take full control and produce your own exquisite, custom typography to add serious impact.

  • Comprehensive OpenType support
  • Artistic text and text frames
  • Character and paragraph styles
  • Flow text along any path

Professional output for print, screen or collaboration
