Learn to work like the professionals with the first ever official guide to Affinity Designer, the award-winning design software. Published by the makers of Affinity Designer, it contains more than 400 full colour pages of instructions, guides and insider tips to help anyone make the most of the software’s speed and power.
As well as learning valuable vector and raster design techniques, readers can follow step-by-step guides to re-create nine projects, commissioned especially for the book from leading illustrators and designers. Tear-out ‘cheat sheets’ display the keyboard shortcuts designed for use in the different Personas, or modes, within the app.
Guest illustrators include Paolo Limoncelli, a UX/UI designer and illustrator from Italy. His contribution, titled The Whittler, tells the story of a robot that lost his leg and tries to fix it using a branch from a tree he found in the forest.
Others are The Panther, a lesson in flat vector character design by Ben the Illustrator; Reflected Skyline by Romain Trystram, which demonstrates the use of dramatic light and reflections; Kevin House’s isometric illustrations in Wine Cellar; and The Fisherman, a 3D illustration by Jonathan Ball, aka pokedstudio.
The Affinity Designer Workbook also includes four design projects for readers to follow, teaching brand and logo design, designing for print, UI and apps. They are contributed by Tom Koszyk–founder and creative lead at Hologram Design in Warsaw–and Affinity’s own Creative Director Neil Ladkin

This is a gorgeous publication, jam-packed with ideas and well organized information. (My wife picked it up and could hardly believe all those 440 or so glossy pages and hard backing weigh so much.) The workbook is a credit to the publishers Serif--so much hard work and thought went into this and it shows on every page.
A few members on the Affinity forum commented on shipping damage :( This publication should be packed in more than a close fitting cardboard box. Amazon knows how to package items, but after after some couriers get their hands on them, hurling them like frisbees crashing into container walls, not many items can survive that treatment. The corners of the spine were damaged and it has a dent on the front--not really bad, but if I was buying it in a book store, I would expect a discount. I did not take any stars away from the book, as it is a shipping issue which I will take up directly with Amazon. I will write a detailed review of the content as time permits.
Tip: Don't leave this sitting on the coffee table gathering dust. It is a practical tool to help you express your true creative talents through this software.
this book will help you wring all you can out of the program as quickly as possible!
Extremely excellent construction! This book seems like more quality than its $50 price tag!
If this were sold as a college book, you'd be out well over a hundred bucks!
Cannot recommend this enough!
