Like most graphic design professionals, it is likely that you use Adobe tools every day and have done so for years (since the early 1990’s for me). Many companies have tried to crack the code to Adobe’s design staples...InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator...but have fallen short in nearly every case! But the problem is that there has been a huge void in the marketplace for a professional-level suite of design software that DOESN’T cost $50+ dollars per month. Adobe’s suite of products sets you back nearly $700 per year and you never “OWN” the software!
Serif and their Affinity-line of products came along to attempt to change that!
I love discovering new software yet I found myself skeptical of the Affinity products as cheap imitations that couldn’t do REAL design work. Then I bought the programs to PROVE I was right. What I discovered, however, was a surprisingly powerful suite of well-designed tools that impressed the daylights out of me! These are PERFECT for anyone wanting to use professional-level tools WITHOUT the monthly expense of Adobe.
Because of that, I felt it important to do a Deep Dive into all three Affinity programs!
