Hey there how’s it going and welcome to the Affinity Designer course. My name is David, I’m a YouTuber primarily in the finance and design industry and together we’re going to go through this course and learn all the ins and outs of Affinity Designer and make some great artwork.
During the course, we won’t just focus on using tools we’ll go through 4 real-world projects together as well as various examples that you can follow along with.
This course is aimed at people who are completely new to Affinity Designer and maybe design applications in general. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have anything for you intermediate users, we’ll also cover the basics of some more advanced and practical topics all step by step. We’ll slowly start with the basics and increase the speed in which we learn throughout the course as we build on prior knowledge.
We’ll create complex shapes, use that pesky pen tool. Explore repeating patterns, using, and creating custom brushes. We’ll talk about color resources, icons. We’ll even create cartoon images and isometric designs from scratch and much much more.
So if you’ve never used Affinity Designer or you’ve struggled in the past, follow me and we’ll learn all the skills, and make some great artwork on the way.
