Having fun with Affinity’s Products

Recently, Affinity launched its vector and bitmap software on Windows as well.

I already purchased Affinity Designer and now I am testing Affinity Photo beta, which I will buy as soon as it’s out of the beta stage. They are both incredible graphic applications.
Designer, despite being only at version 1.5, comes with a list of impressive features. Working with it is a breath of fresh air. The symbol tool itself, with the chance to see the changes applied in real time to the clones, it’s a tremendous boost in the workflow. Affinity Designer is also unique as it combines vector and bitmap in a streamlined way.

There’s plenty of help on the forum and the developers are working hard to release bug fixes and new beta at a fast pace. Considered we are not talking big corporation but rather small teams, it’s a truly remarkable example of innovation and devotion.

There are already rumors about a DTP program and perhaps more.

P.S. The price for Affinity’s programs is a steal!

UI

Tonight I spent some time with a couple of renders for a UI exercise.
I wanted to test a Vray shader for UI renders, below the result.
