A Feature-Packed Yet Affordable Vector Design Tool

Affinity Designer is a vector graphic design tool for doing design work for websites, marketing materials, user interfaces, icons, etc. The software is optimized for documents with varying complexity and offers a slew of functionalities.

Packs Them All

Affinity Designer is an excellent app that offers almost everything you require to design, sketch, draw, etc. Some of the features worth mentioning are the infinite zoom that offers precision, the truly smart guides, tools, layer panels, and view modes. All of these aspects make Affinity Designer a worthy competitor to other vector graphics software tools.The software is quite intuitive too, and designers would feel at home irrespective of the design platforms they may have used before. The ability to use canvases in varied ways and different export methods are worth writing home about. Struggling designers and graphic artists would also appreciate how affordable and accessible the software is.

Incredible Support

The two things that make Affinity Designer stand out are the bucket full of features at such an affordable price and the excellent support. The development and support teams do their jobs really well. Also, the online user community is quick with its responses to any queries/doubts you may have. The development team stays updated on what’s trending in the design world and what fresh enhancements there are on the horizon. And they keep their patrons in the know too.
