In this class, you'll learn how to create vector based geometric illustrations on your iPad in Affinity Designer.

When you take the class, you’ll get all of the vector assets and colors I use in the class, including 33 customizable vector illustrations that you can use for personal or commercial use.

First we’ll create a vibrant geometric illustration combining simple shapes and bold color.  I’ll show you how to use the tools in Affinity Designer to perfectly line up your geometric elements so they seamlessly fit together, and how to add textures to your vectors so they don’t appear flat and dull.

We’ll look at how to create interesting geometric patterns, and how to add text to your composition to create a bold and vibrant lettering design.

Next we’ll look at how to create complex geometric shapes using Affinity Designer’s precise transform tools.  We’ll cover all the math you need to know to get your geometric shapes to be perfectly symmetrical. I’ll share with you a practice sheet of geometric shapes that you can use to practice all the steps for creating any shape at all.

Then we’ll create a composition using a variety of geometric shapes, outlines, and patterns.  We’ll look at how to use the pen tool to create detailed line drawings to compliment your geometric shapes.  I’ll show you some easy tricks for building symmetrical designs and adjusting colors as you work.

We’ll also look at how to use advanced vector editing tools to create the exact shape that you need, and how to add a smooth gradient to your backgrounds and vectors.

Last we’ll create a complex astronomy themed composition combining all the vector editing skills we cover in the class into a detailed illustration.  We’ll look at how to combine premade vector elements and hand drawn elements to create unique illustrations that are easy to customize and use for anything from social media posts to print on demand projects.

The amazing thing about this process is you can create pixel perfect geometric shapes using Affinity Designer’s advanced editing tools.  Affinity is only a few more dollars than Procreate, and it offers both the ability to work with vectors and precise transform tools that make it perfect for creating geometric illustrations!

All you need to take this class is your iPad, and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
