About This Class


In her first installment of Type Effects, Akanksha Rawat shows how to use Affinity Designer's draw persona to create a smooth chocolate text effect. The techniques combine effects such as Inner Shadow, Bevel / Emboss and Gradient Overlay with various blending modes. Akanksha also shows how to adjust your design by scaling, moving, and duplicating the effects.

The concepts are demonstrated on various type treatments, but with these techniques, designers can emboss, highlight, extrude logos, shapes, lettering, and even images.

Topics include:

  • Coloring Background non destructively
  • Font Choice
  • Moving, copying, and removing layer effects
  • Beveling and embossing type
  • Working with inner shadow
  • Blending layer effects


This class is for anyone even if you are new to Affinity Designer. Akanksha goes step by step and shows you exactly what you need to do to create this text effect. Although she we will be using Affinity Designer, but you can very well use any other software to create the same effect.
