It’s hard to ever sway away from Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Though Sketch made huge ground on the creative software of choice, many designers continue to support the tools they are most familiar with. So what’s it going to take for a new design program to make people step out of their comfort zones?
Well, here’s one for starters. Affinity Designer has just launched, and their pitch is one that has us clamoring to test it out just as much as Sketch. With any new software there are sure to be bugs and kinks to be sorted out, but the video below clearly shares Affinity Designer’s incredible intuitive nature, smoothness and strength. It may just be a possible Illustrator and Photoshop killer!
The tools found in Affinity Designer are customary to what all Adobe users are used to, but the extra abilities of the product offer real-time document editing, outline and preview splitting, easy 2x exporting and–let’s not forget–it is all SUBSCRIPTION FREE! We’ve got our copy! You can get yours for $39.99 but normally it retails for $49.99.
After all, Adobe can’t be the kings of graphic design forever…right?
