About This Class

This course is designed keeping absolute beginners in mind. If you have no previous knowledge in drawing / vector graphic drawing, then fear not. We will learn everything about vector graphic drawing and Affinity Designer in this course with hands on training. 

As part of this course we will first learn some basic tools of Affinity Designer. Later we will move into drawing professional vector arts. I'm a fan of learn as you go approach. So, we will learn about new techniques, workflow as we do our artwork throughout this course. 

Affinity Designer is a vector drawing program that is catching loads of attention lately. Many people are now moving away from Creative Suit and using Affinity Designer because it is more cost effective and very powerful. 

By end of this course, you will have sound knowledge on Affinity Designer's core tools and how to use them in your creative work.

Good luck and looking forward to meet you in the lessons.

Loved this class! Learned so much! Thanks Jay!!
Congratulations for the effort to teach us so many things and tricks in Affinity Designer. I use it on my iPad and it was just fine. Keep up the good work!
As a complete beginner to vector illustration I still managed to complete all the projects even though I have the iPad version of Affinity Designer. I had to pause the videos a few times to find the equivalent options and functions but now I am really familiar with the app. Thanks Jay for your enjoyable and thorough foundation classes.
