Affinity Designer is a quality vector graphics design application used for working on illustrations, UI designs and pattern designs. It has high zooming capability upto 1,000,000% that will be helpful for working on art boards. It also provides grid system due to which you can create video game graphics. In addition, it has snapping options using which objects are locked and positioned based on shapes and alignment guides. By using window stabilizer feature, you can create smooth and accurate curves. This software allows creation of vector and pixel graphics on the same workflow as it combines pixel art and vector art in a single application.

No, Affinity Designer does not provide API.
The interface is super easy to use.
I have very little experience drawing on paper. But affinity designer makes my job very easy.
Not cluttered at all.
Supports both vector and raster (pixel) mode.
It can save history along with the file. So undo is always available when you open.
Some features are yet not available: Like 1. merging vector shapes will not retain colors, 2. Cannot subtract a shape of group from a group.
And yes, it crashes often, sometimes when I really need the software to stay on.
I am a both cartoon animator and a book illustrator. I enjoy doing both with affinity designer. I draw characters, props, animals, fishes, backgrounds etc.
It's easy to use, cost effect and works. Serif are constantly updating and keeping it relevant and it supports multiple file formats both for importing and exporting
nothing really, it's a great product and updated reasonably regularly. It can be annoying if you buy from Serif directly (say for a beta) and then they release it o the app store and there's no way to get the App Store version without purchasing again
Great software, works well, supports lots of formats both for importing and exporting
Competing products are much more expensive and Affinity Designer is a really good replacement. I use it for all vector work and it performs really well. Serif are also very helpful in the support forums when there are problems. I have a laser engraver and it works really well for producing artwork that cuts/engraves really well. Important to group the correct objects together and use layers to the correct paths are followed.
The fluidity and real time rendering is unlike any other vector software. Very easy to learn with no prior experience, and for those that have used other softwares, it is easy to pick up
missing some features from competing software; at the same time, has some features others do not
You will be amazed! For vector graphics it is simply just amazing to use. Since it was built from the ground up, it has no clutter - very responsive and does not have a steep learning curve. The Affinity line of softwares are frequently updated, and the community is active.

This is the best graphics software program around and it just keeps getting better. It is affordable and very easy to use. You can import a variety of file types making it extremely versatile. It has all the bells and whistles and then some. I find it easier to use than AI. The Affinity team provides great support and is always making improvements.
So many improvements have been made since the software was first released that there isn't really anything that I dislike.
Affinity Designer is easy to use and very affordable. It accomplishes any task that I would use with other, more expensive, software. I highly recommend it and have always felt that it was the best decision I made.
I wouldn't say I am solving problems. I am just using a more efficient graphics program for designing. It is a replacement and in my opinion a real game-changer.
Even for a beginner like myself, it just took two to three days to learn. I have been using it for more than a month now, and I feel quite confident about its features and functionalities. Various online documents and tutorials are also available for Affinity designer, which makes things easier. I found two of its features particularly helpful so far—first, the grouping tool to group layers and form a single object. Second, the grid tool's reshaping capability that allows me to have thinner or coarser grid according to my requirement while designing something.
So far, I haven't found any downsides but I had some minor issues finding a few functionalities in Affinity desinger. For example, when I needed to crop a design that I had made I had to export it to Affinity Photo to get the desired result.
I would highly recommend using Affinity Designer for any modeling or designing work that needs to be done faster with sophisticated results. Even for a beginner like myself, it just took two to three days to learn. I have been using it for more than a month now, and I feel quite confident about using it and could achieve adaptable and professional-looking models.
I am building some architecture and pipeline designs with Affinity Designer. I believe it has been really useful in achieving adaptable and professional-looking models.
So easy to use and has everything a creative vector illustrator needs.
While there are several ways to get CAD line work data into Affinity Designer, I wish there was better reciprocity with my CAD tool of choice: Rhino, although this is just as much of a complaint toward Rhino (which can't export directly to Affinity Designer) as it is to Affinity Designer (which can't directly import 2D Rhino files).

The user interface is designed to suit the Mac machine graphics. Affinity functions properly and can be comfortably used. Once you buy the software, the device sets the quality value drug. For a more costly graphic design approach you don't have to spend more to get identical software. Supports seamless matrix, Photoshop, and other formats. Such file forms can also be formatted and edited quickly.
These are the qualities that I have considered lacking. It does not support the Adobe Illustrator plug-ins, nor does it upgrade as much as it does. There are some materials not given. For example, some simple resources, including anchoring points, attribute selection and a pixel cloning stamp are available.
The simple toolkit will do much of what I need in the drawing programme. It has some good online resources, such as Aviary and Vector. Output may be decreased due to any uncertainty. I hope this is a fortunate commodity.

I really love the lower price of the Affinity product range. I tried a few other trials of products but Affinity really got me hooked to their products. It's very easy to use and most of the functionality you know from other products is also there and works in a same way. There is also a great community behind it where you can always ask questions. There are also a lot of tutorials online on platforms like YouTube. Another great advantage is that you can still open your files from other suites like .psd, .ai,... I also noticed it's a lot less "heavy" to run on my computer, so people with lower end machines should also be able to use the Affinity suite products.
It takes some time to get adapted to the other keyboard shortcuts. Also some functionality that you might be used to could be missing.
Try the trial first :-)
