Affinity Designer Workbook

Bound in a hardcover, and printed across 448 full colour pages, the Workbook contains a wealth of stylishly illustrated instructions, guides and expert tips to help you make the most of Affinity Designer’s huge feature set and vast design capabilities.

You’ll learn from the experts with some fantastic projects created just for the Workbook by top artists and designers including Paolo Limoncelli, a leading UX designer and illustrator from Italy. His contribution, The Whittler, teaches valuable raster and vector techniques, plus how to create unique brushes using Affinity Designer.

Other guest illustrators include Romain Trystram, Kevin House and our own Creative Director Neil Ladkin. You’ll gain a rare insight into each designer’s workflow, from concept to finished product, and with links to download all the sample files you can easily follow along with each amazing project.

The Workbook also includes a huge reference of every tool and panel, plus a detailed core skills section for brushing up on fundamental design techniques. And, to help boost your productivity we’ve also included four keyboard shortcut cheats sheets in the back of the book which you can pull out and keep aside for easy reference!

Affinity Designer Workbook

The Workbook has received some great reviews from both Affinity Designer users and the press − it’s currently rated 4.5/5 at and 4.3/5 at Amazon UK, while Creative Bloq have said:

‘Once readers reach the end of the book, they’ll have a wealth of technical knowledge under their belts and prove that they can combine their vector graphics skills to create fully rounded design projects such as product and packaging designs, posters, and press-ready documents. With clear explanations and an even clearer layout, the Affinity Designer Work Book looks set to make the already popular software even more accessible.’

No shipping to Switzerland?

Tobias Braun -

Will there be an update of the book for V1.6?

Affinity Support -

@Ruedi: Unfortunately Amazon who package and dispatch our workbooks doesn't ship to Switzerland.

Affinity Support -

@Tobias: An update for the workbook to include 1.6 features isn't currently planned.

Rory Fisher -

This may be slightly off topic, but is there any plan to release a similar book for Photo? It would certainly be the first (in English at least). Thanks...

Affinity Support -

@Rory Fisher: We are in the process of creating a workbook for Affinity Photo which will be released soon.

Hezkiel -

I want to buy the book but my country isn't in the list. But we can buy thing from Amazon to Indonesia. Sad. Is there any available e-book?

Kenneth -

Still not possible for shipping to Norway? Why not?

Affinity Support -

@Hezkiel: The workbook is only available as a hard copy.

Wendy -

Just wanting to try the affinity program before getting the book but can you honour the discount for me when I want to buy it

Affinity Support -

@Kenneth: You can send an email to our Customer Service team to see what's possible.

Emanuele -

Hi, I saw the discount promotion last week, now I was proceeding the order but I see that the promotion has finished.... Is there a chance to use the discount again? tks in advance, best regards

Affinity Support -

@Emanuele: It's not possible for us to extend the discount, sorry.

Like Hezkiel, i too live in Indonesia, and I bought Designer when it came out. I understand shipping a large book to all countries around the world is challenging logistically, and costly. What I can't understand, is why you don't release an electronic version of this book! This is 2017, and forcing use of paper copies should be unnecessary. You have customers around the world, and are trying to expand your user base, so extending the simple service of providing all of us with the possibility to get a book so helpful to users, should be a no-brainer. This policy is not particularly (read: at all) user or customer friendly, and make me hesitant to consider you a serious alternative to Adobe.

Martin Pruvost -

Shipping to South-America, only Brazil? There are twelve more countries in this unknown region. An electronic version of this book would be even more friendly to all Affinity customers around the globe! Make us happier, please! :))

Affinity Support -

@ Martin Pruvost: Unfortunately our shipping provider doesn't ship to all available regions. A PDF version may be something thats released in the future.

Yusak Wijaya -

Hi, is there any solution for people who like to buy the affinity designer workbook, but their country is not listed on shipping option (like indonesia) ? maybe use another shipping provider ?

Affinity Support -

@Yusak Wijaya: This would be a question for our Customer Service team. You can send them an email here
