Imagined by designers, created for professionals

Affinity Designer is the fastest, smoothest, most precise vector graphic design software available. Whether you’re working on branding, concept art, print projects, icons, UI, UX, or web mock ups, Affinity Designer will revolutionise how you work, on macOS and Windows.

You don’t just have to take our word for it. Affinity Designer is averaging 5 stars in more than 10,000 customer reviews worldwide. It was Apple’s Editor’s Choice from day one, featured as one of the best new apps of 2014, and received the highly coveted Apple Design Award at WWDC in June 2015 for its incredible performance and capabilities.

Version 1.5 now available!

Since its launch in October 2014, Affinity Designer has received four huge updates, including 100s of new features and improvements, all delivered free to Affinity Designer owners. Check out just some of the updates in the very latest version 1.5 released October 2016:

  • macOS Sierra Optimisation
  • Symbols
  • Constraints
  • Asset Management
  • Text Styles
  • Huge export improvements
  • New colour picker tool
  • Style improvements
  • Free UI kit

With the addition of features such as Symbols and Constraints, Affinity Designer is now also the perfect tool for UI and UX designers - here are 15 reasons why.

Design tools redefined

All the tools you need in a professional vector design app, from an incredible precise pen tool to a super smooth gradient tool. All carefully considered and meticulously developed, they just work—in precisely the way you want them to.

Built for your workflow

With core principles of performance, stability and lack of bloat, Affinity Designer has been meticulously crafted for a professional workflow.

Cross platform performance

With a professional pedigree forged on Mac, and matched step for step on Windows, common file format delivers stunning results on either platform.

Unsurpassed speed and accuracy

Pan at 60fps and zoom to an eye-popping 10,000,000%, you’ll see all adjustments, effects, transformations and brushes in real time.

Work in any colour space

RGB, CMYK, LAB, Greyscale. End-to-end CMYK workflow with ICC colour management, and 16-bit per channel editing.

Unsurpassed file compatibility

The best PSD import engine available and full support for SVG, EPS, PDF, PDF/X and FH files means injecting Affinity Designer into your workflow is painless.

Pixel perfect control

With real-time pixel preview in standard or retina resolution available with a single click, you can always see what you’re going to get. Can’t achieve the perfect result purely in vector? Just edit the pixels — Affinity Designer has a full suite of raster tools too.

Non-destructive effects and adjustments

With a huge library of adjustment layers, effects and blend modes—combined with full support for masks and clipping layers—Affinity Designer offers the most advanced layer controls available in any vector based app.

Flexible workspaces… and workflows

With a focused, fully customisable workspace, including docked and floating UI modes, Affinity Designer lets you work how you want. Add regular and custom 2D and isometric grids for flexible layouts, work on multiple designs at once, and use macOS features like Split Screen and Full Screen. Plus, with savable history, unlimited undo and non-destructive filters and adjustments you can always go back and change your mind.

Natural brushwork

Use Force Touch, stylus pressure, tilt and other controls for natural-looking artwork. Edit vector brush strokes as cleanly and easily as regular curves, and add raster brushwork—on its own or with vector art—to add depth and high quality organic textures.

Rotate the canvas, blend colours, edit brush parameters, create your own brushes and nozzles, and import .abr brushes for complete control over your work.

Throw some shapes

Affinity Designer delivers a comprehensive set of shape primitives with easy controls for adjusting geometry with corner settings and smart snapping indicators. A full set of Boolean geometry operations, non-destructive compound shapes, and full node editing means you can create beautiful complex geometry in no time.

Just your type

Add artistic text for headlines, text frames of any shape, or text that follows any vector path. Apply sophisticated styling and ligatures, previewing all your available fonts and style sets in on-screen panels. All the controls you need are built in, including leading, kerning, baseline shift, tab stops – and now in version 1.5 you can create text styles across your document.

New professional print controls

Affinity Designer features full professional print output. Pantone® support, end-to-end CMYK and ICC colour management are just part of it. You can also open, edit and output PDF/X files, set overprint controls, use spot colours, and add bleed area, trim and crop marks.

Powerful export

In export mode you get a complete workspace dedicated to image export. Select areas, layers or objects to export, controlling each item’s output settings independently. For efficient web and UI design, you can automatically create new files whenever your design changes, in whatever resolution, file format and folder structure you wish.

Common Affinity file format

Affinity’s shared file format makes mixed discipline design as smooth and simple as it should be. Open any native Affinity file in any Affinity app on any platform and just keep working – with shared history, unlimited undo and seamless switching. And for export, Affinity Designer takes all major file types in its stride.

Incredibly powerful artboards

In Affinity Designer you can create an unlimited number of different design variants, sizes and screens – laying them out in one document to see them all at once. When you come to export you get full control over what artboards to output and with what settings, dramatically simplifying your workflow for responsive and app design.

We’ve got your back

They include dozens of easy-to-follow online video tutorials, our thriving forums and social media feeds, where you’ll often be talking direct to one of the developers.
