Professional graphic design software for Mac

Created for Mac

Imagined by designers, created for Mac

Affinity Designer is the fastest, smoothest, most precise vector graphic design software available. Whether you’re working on graphics for marketing materials, websites, icons, UI design or just like creating cool concept art, Affinity Designer will revolutionise how you work.

It’s fast. Really fast.

We don’t do spinning beach balls. Working in Affinity Designer is always live – pan and zoom at 60fps, transform objects in correct z-order, make adjustments or apply effects in realtime and always see live previews of brushes or tools. Whether it’s a 100 megapixel image or the most complex vector drawing with thousands of curves, it’s still the same and never runs out of memory. You have never experienced anything like it.

It’s all in the details

Beautiful vector brushes

Affinity Designer allows you to stay in the vector domain while harnessing the organic properties of texture and pressure. You can use pressure from a stylus – or velocity – as a controller to produce beautiful, clean strokes that are fully editable. With the added flexibility of brush texture and variable opacity you can create truly natural looking artwork with all the benefits of vector editing.

Enhance with pixels

Use pixel brush tools to paint inside and erase vectors in a non-destructive manner. Paint shadows, highlights and textures onto your vectors shapes and continue to benefit from their precision and sharpness. Affinity Designer even lets you paint away parts of vector shapes with pixel tools, leaving all your curves intact.

Throw some shapes

Affinity Designer delivers a comprehensive library of customisable, accurate shapes. With smart-snapping indicators and a full set of Boolean geometry operations (including Divide) you can create beautiful complex geometry quickly and accurately.

One file format

Mixed discipline design is as it should be with a shared file format across Affinity apps. Open any native Affinity file in any Affinity app and benefit from shared history, undo options and seamless workflow.

Unsurpassed compatibility

Experience the best PSD import engine out there – meaning you can reliably collaborate with Adobe® Photoshop® users whilst enjoying the unique benefits of Affinity Designer. Full support for AI (PDF stream), PSD, PDF and SVG files gives you all the flexibility you need and means whether you switch to Affinity Designer for all your work, or just elements of what you do, it’s completely painless.

Work in any color space
