Review

Affinity Designer is a macOS utility equipped with various tools that allow individuals to create original marketing materials or any other design objects. It can be used to create websites, icons, modern art, or interface design.

Once you've completed the installation process, you are welcomed by a standard interface, comprised of a content area, a left-toolbar and the main menu. There are multiple available customizations, but keep in mind that you need a high-end system to fully enjoy the program's features.

The application provides powerful design tools that are highly customizable. It has pen and brush stabilization, non-destructive boolean operations and a comprehensive vector toolset. Also, it encapsulates isometric grids and planes, auto-alignment tools, along with pixel snapping and alignment.

Furthermore, users can layout any pages, menus, and screens across any number of artboards. They can be created by any size, either manually or from presets, and then exported at 1x, 2x, or 3x resolution in one operation.

To summarize, Affinity Designer is a comprehensive program for designers or PR specialists that want to create new forms of design. However, it does consume a high amount of system resources and the price seems a bit high.
