Any device, anywhere

Whether on Windows, Mac or iPad the features and file format are exactly same. This gives complete freedom to seamlessly work across your (or your team’s) different devices with the same file.

Colour control

Work in RGB or LAB colour spaces – even up to 32-bits per channel. Plus if you’re designing for print, pantone support, end-to-end CMYK and ICC colour management are built in as standard.

Rock solid vector tools

Affinity Designer is full of tools meticulously developed for achieving high productivity, while maintaining 100 percent accurate geometry.

  • + Comprehensive vector toolset
  • + The best pen & node tool available
  • + Pencil and brush stabilisation
  • + Non-destructive boolean operations

Advanced grids and guides

The options you have for setting up grids and guides is almost unlimited. Whether it’s a standard grid pattern, or full isometric with multiple planes, you have full control over spacing, sub-divisions, gutters, angles and more.

  • + Column and page guides
  • + Isometric grids and planes
  • + Auto-alignment tools
  • + Pixel snapping and alignment

One million+ percent zoom

This is what we mean by power. From the beginning we developed our engine to work to floating point accuracy. What does this mean? 1,000,000% zoom!

It’s easy to create multiple versions of symbols with some attributes detached, or even have symbols within symbols to allow some really innovative ways to speed up your workflow.

Live pixel preview

Pixel perfect designs are assured by viewing your work in pixel preview mode. This allows you to view vectors in both standard and retina resolution, giving you a completely live view of how every element of your design will export.
