Affinity Designer is an amazing app for Mac which is taking the design world by storm. Designers everywhere are reporting that they’re dropping their old graphics software and switching entirely over to using Affinity instead.

By completing “Affinity Designer Quick Start” you’ll have all the right shortcuts and tricks up your sleeve, be fully familiar with the app’s interface and tools, and be able to go from laying down curves all the way through to exporting a design. Everything we’ll cover can be done in the free trial of Affinity Designer, so even if you don’t yet have the app you’ll still be able to take this course. Let’s begin!
