Affinity Designer for iPad

Affinity Designer for iPad

Affinity Designer for iPad brings professional vector graphic design to the iPad for the first time.

Developed with input from a team of leading professional graphic designers and based on Apple Design Award-winning technology, Affinity Designer is the most ambitious creative app developed for iPad.

Managing Director of developer Serif, Ashley Hewson, says: “Affinity Designer for iPad takes all the power and precision of our desktop version and converts it into a truly stunning immersive experience.

“We’ve packed everything you’d expect from professional design software into an app that you can just pick up and take wherever you go, totally free from the confines of your desk or even your office.”

Hewson says developing Affinity Designer for iPad meant totally reimagining the way graphic design works on a screen.

“We've spent months working closely with influential artists, illustrators and designers to fine-tune the development of the app. Their input really helped us rise to the huge challenge of bringing a full graphic design experience to iPad, which means this is an app with proven professional requirements at its core.”

Affinity Designer for iPad’s velvet-smooth vector tools mean curves have pinpoint precision. From initial sketches, to fleshing out a design in vector, to handing off for professional print or web, it has the workflow covered, all in one place.

Professional performance demands the ability to operate seamlessly with your fellow pros. So Affinity Designer’s modern, powerful export engine covers all the major file types, whether a project is destined for print, online or another app.

In a real game-changer for vector drawing, pencil stabilisation allows you to produce the smoothest and most accurate lines possible, drawing using freehand pencil and brush tools.

The astonishing ability to zoom by well over one million per cent ensures complete accuracy in your work, every time.

Affinity Designer for iPad is unique in offering the opportunity to switch seamlessly from vector to raster work. With around 100 brushes built in, to cover pretty much every requirement, it’s simple to add rich media texture to your designs.

Naturally, Affinity Designer for iPad is optimised for the very latest iPad technology including intuitive multi-touch gestures. The iPad’s advanced Metal graphics processing delivers unreal speed and lag-free real-time edits, even on the biggest files. Apple Pencil dynamics like tilt, angle, pressure and more help bring smoothness and stability to your curves and colours. Using the Drag & Drop feature of the iPad’s Files app enables you to bring projects in and out of the app at a touch.

Hewson adds: “Affinity apps are tailored for today’s technology … that means they’re fast, powerful and precise, with total lack of bloat. On iPad, the powerful graphics processing really helps us deliver eye-popping performance.”

Affinity Designer for iPad supports all major formats, 16-bit per channel editing, end-to-end CMYK, ICC colour management and spot colours for professional printing.

Boasting 22 non-destructive adjustment layers that preview instantly and can be edited any time, and with full support for masks, stacks and clipping layers, Affinity Designer for iPad offers the most advanced layer controls available in any vector-based app. Further, its unrivalled text engine puts the power to create exquisite typography at your fingertips.

Everything you need for end-to-end UI design workflow is on hand, including unlimited artboards, a powerful Symbols tool and full asset management.

It works seamlessly with the desktop version (sold separately), which was given a coveted Apple Design Award in 2015. And it becomes the second Serif app for the Apple tablet – professional image editor Affinity Photo was unveiled at WWDC2017 and is Apple’s reigning iPad App of the Year.

After an introductory discount period, Affinity Designer for iPad will be priced £19.99 / $19.99 / 21,99€ subject to local currency variations) from the App Store.

Affinity is a next-generation suite of award-winning software for creative professionals, comprising Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, with Affinity Publisher coming soon.
