Affinity - Imagined by designers, created for professionals

Drumroll, Please!

In August, we asked you to ‘show us what you’ve got’  in the hope that we could feature real-life work from our users in our marketing materials for the 1.6 Designer and Photo updates we launched recently.

Well, we were blown away by the thousands of high quality submissions we received from all over the world, and more than a little humbled once again by your support.

In total we have licensed 72 artworks by amazing independent designers, photographers and illustrators who use Affinity. These images have been featured in our 1.6 campaigns as in-app samples, in our marketing videos and on our website. We feel very passionate about our creative community and paying creatives properly for their work, so we are proud to say that each artist has received $300 per image we have used too.

Massive thanks go to the following featured artists and photographers!
