After 4 years in the making, Serif's Affinity Designer has launched!(

over 8 years ago from David Bachmann, Front-end developer

    I tried the Beta versions, mostly doing typography works - I must say, for 35€ this app is the best value you can get. Also the adding of live raster brushes to vector artworks is something else...

    Reminds me well of Macromedia Fireworks, in many ways, but the main purpose for this app is illustration - so if you're an illustrator, get it and start working/forger Adobe's Illustrator :)

    p.s. I saw they're working on a DTP app also, a competitor for InDesign - if they will sell a "package" for $299 and keep updating the apps as quickly as they did with the Beta, we can all kiss Adobe goodbye in under 6 months :)

    Also, forget Sketch :) The Retina export alone in Designer is well worth the money!
