“I use Affinity Designer almost every day to create patterns for art licensors and my print-on-demand shops.  I can't wait to show you how much time I save by working in Affinity Designer!”

Liz Kohler Brown

Who is this class for?

  • Creative people who have an iPad, but aren't sure how to use Affinity yet.
  • Anyone who has upgraded from Affinity Version 1 to Version 2 and is having trouble making the switch!
  • Pattern designers who are tired of making pixel based patterns that get blurry and have pixel lines in them (let me show you how vectors can be so much easier!).

What Can You Make in Affinity?

 

  • Professional, vector based repeat patterns that can be scaled to any size.
  • Simple blender patterns, super-complex hero patterns, and everything in between.
  • Design layouts like logos, digital planners, and hand lettering.
  • Endless color versions using a quick recoloring process.

Need to See Things on Paper?

 

I created a workbook to go along with this class with notes about all the hard-to-remember stuff.  You can print it out, or reference it on your iPad when you need it!
