'I've done some Affinity Designer tutorials on YouTube, but they just cover one tool or technique. How do I actually create good designs, start to finish?'

'There are so many tools in Affinity Designer! So many things to remember! As a beginner what do I need to know and what do I not need to know?'

'How do I know when I've learned the really important stuff?'

Enrol on this course and find out just how well I can answer these questions. I've been a designer for nearly 30 years. I've spent thousands of hours working in various design studios and now I'm bringing that experience to Affinity Designer. Over the years I've learned what matters when you are creating good design and what doesn't. What clients want to see and what keeps them coming back to you. What tools work and what traps there are to catch you out. Also things like where to start when enhancing an image for your design work. What steps you should take and in what order. Things like selecting the right tool for the job because just learning a tool isn't enough. How to use a tool but also when to use it, what problems you may encounter and, perhaps most importantly, why to use it.

The course gives you a thorough grounding in the tools and techniques you need to know when you are producing good design. These tools and techniques are so fundamental that I make sure that they are covered properly and in detail. Practically every image you see is available as a download so you can follow along and I've also created many practice videos. Not a multi choice quiz where you just have to remember the name of a tool. That's not enough - you need practical exercises for a program like Affinity Designer and I give you exactly that in a unique way.

Your practical exercises are consistent. After you've watched the tutorials I'll give you a task and tell you what I want you to do with it. Then you have a choice. You can listen to the advice I give you about how to do the job, or you can skip the advice and try doing the exercise. Then come back to the video and I'll show you how I did it. I'll also give you some valuable tips about tools, techniques and workflow along the way so you can really nail down the fundamental concepts and be ready to move on to more advanced subjects.

Did you notice I said 'fundamental' twice instead of 'basic'? There's a reason for that. This course is aimed at beginners and existing users who want to round out their knowledge but that doesn't mean it's over simplified. Heck, no! You will learn the same tools and techniques that are used in professional studios. I've been in quite a few design studios in my time and - just between you and me - there's things on this course that I've had to explain to people who use Illustration programs on a daily basis. That's something I can do for you too. As well as being a designer for decades I also spent some time as a teacher and my university degree is all about how people learn. And it is my firm belief that the right way to learn something like Affinity designer is not to just learn the tools. The right way is to learn the right workflow. You learn the right workflow by using the right tools for the job, and the best way to use them.

After learning about vector based tools we'll tackle more topics about enhancing photos for use in your design work. You'll also practice these new techniques. Things like half a dozen different ways to select areas of your picture and the pros and cons of each. Learn best working practices and gotchas while you learn about vector based shapes, text, artboards, gradients, selective colorization or pro level dodge and burn techniques. Layer blend modes? So many people get confused by them. Give me 20 minutes and you'll wonder why anyone would ever find them challenging. Learn the differences between vector shapes and bitmaps. Layer masks? So useful yet sometimes so confusing. Let me explain them to you and make them a vital part of your new skillset.

By the end of the course you will have mastered various effective workflows, start to finish. You will gain the confidence to tackle your own vector illustrations, be able to enhance photos, and one day soon you may well be looking at one of your own designs and thinking 'That looks fantastic! I did that...'

Enrol now. Don't forget you have the 30 day money back guarantee so you have nothing to lose and so much to gain. Learn Affinity Designer from someone who knows what's important and knows how to teach. Get ready to be an effective designer. Get ready to make your work shine!

Web Design in Affinity Designer Masterclass

How to design modern websites in Affinity Designer - A web design and Affinity Designer feast

If you are thinking about starting out as a web designer you have probably tried to harness Photoshop sometime in the past.   

You probably spent countless hours trying to figure out that monstrous program.   

I know the pain.   

I remember spending days after days, weeks after weeks just to remember how tools and effects work.   

Luckily we live in times when if you want to start a career as a web design freelancer, you can just put Photoshop aside.   

Hi, my name is Dawid Tuminski and in this course you will learn how to use Affinity Designer to design websites from A-Z.   

This course is packed with valuable info any web design rookie should know, such as:   

  • How to choose the BEST colors and fonts for your websites   

  • What makes a professionally designed website   

  • What are the modern web design trends you should know about   

  • How to build website’s visual guides, such as wireframes and grids   

…and that’s just the introduction!   

Because the real bread and butter of this course is inside its practical parts.   

We will get our hands dirty and explore all the tools and techniques professional web designers use to design a website inside Affinity Designer.   

That includes:   

  • Building wireframes and grids – the building blocks of every website   

  • Using assets to make the design process ultra-fast   

  • Creating text styles that let you change fonts in a blink of an eye   

  • And of course designing a website

You will learn how to design it form opening a file, through placing images, adding text and backgrounds right up to exporting the design you would ultimately hand out to a client.   

There’s a lot of good stuff to cover and I truly believe that once you’ve completed the course and practiced on your own, you will start creating amazing website designs in Affinity Designer in no time.   

And to make things easier, this course comes with a lot of downloadable resources:   

  • Presentations you can open up on your tablet or smartphone to revise the lecture when you are commuting   

  • The design files you can explore to get the real feel of a website design   

  • And images and icons needed to make recreating the design effortless   

This is a  more than a 4 hour long web design and Affinity Designer bundle. Every step of the process is explained thoroughly, but without the yaaaaaawn parts.   

Please notice one thing.   

This course is not about learning all there is to know about Affiinity Designer.   

It’s a course for those who already got the basics of the software and would love to learn how to use their skills to design websites.   

We won’t be looking at each and every tool to find out what it does.   

We will however go deep on those tools that we will be specifically using for web design purposes.

I mean, if you don’t know jack about the software, you can always take a look at my Affinity Designer for Beginners course here on Udemy.

But of course, if you have any questions along the way, I will be more than happy to answer them.   

I am here to help, so you can rest assured that you won’t be left out on your own when something is not clear and needs a more personalized explanation.   

Also, don’t forget that you are totally covered by a 30-day money back guarantee.No questions asked.

So if you don’t want to spend ages on learning overly complicated software and you don’t want to visit your bank to ask for loans just to get that software, give Affinity Designer a try.   

Give this course a try.   

And I’d love to see you inside!

Here’s a comprehensive list of goodies you will find inside:   

  • If you want to create glamorous designs, you need to have something to create them in. You need Documents that you can create fast and easy and you need to know how to manage them. That’s Section 3.   

  • What’s a design if it doesn’t have… shapes? Affinity Designer makes creating objects fun and easy. That’s why Section 6 is so… fun.

  • You don’t only want to create artwork, do you? You also want to easily customize it, so it looks perfect. That is why customizing and transforming your artwork is covered not in one, but in TWO sections: 7 and 8.

Hi there, thank you so much for showing interest in my Affinity Designer complete course. Below
is a complete breakdown of what you're going to learn throughout this
course. Lets start the journey.

- GENERAL OVERVIEW:

Have you ever wanted to start a career in the design world but weren't feeling comfortable or you just thought that design is not for you? Or maybe you've tried to learn web design but you weren't sure where to start?
Well, this complete Affinity Designer masterclass will take you from a total beginner to an advanced designer who's feeling comfortable designing logos, apps, graphics and even websites.
You absolutely don't have to have any experience in the design world or Affinity Designer, we'll go through everything step-by-step in the course. We'll go through the interface of the software, explain all of the panels, toolbars and settings and then we'll get to work within the 3 personas in Affinity Designer.

- PROJECT-BASED COURSE!

The masterclass contains many projects that we will be designing through the course, polishing and putting our learned skills to the test. You'll use the skills learned to create amazing creations, apps, logos, graphics and more!

SO, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DESIGN?

Let me introduce you to the design projects:

  1. Design an App Icon: With just few tools learned [rectangles and gradients], you'll be able to quickly design a very minimalistic, modern and sophisticated icon for an app.

  2. Convert a Pixel Graphic to a Vector Logo: Follow this very cool time-saving  trick in order to turn any kind of pixel graphic to an amazing looking vector shape, logo or form. 

  3. Enhance Photographs: Affinity Designer also allows us to edit pictures on the go with its huge set of photo manipulation options. Join me as we thoroughly go through the options.

  4. Design a Logo: With the techniques, tools and tricks learned you'll be able to design an eye-pleasing modern logo for a company. I'll go through the whole process and you'll design a brand new logo from scratch.

  5. Design a 2D Flat Character: You'll even design a 2D cartoon character from scratch using just plain tools as rectangles, spheres and curves! It will be really fun.

  6. Shading and Texturing: You'll learn the very important processes of shading and texturing and we'll be applying these techniques to the current graphics that we've already designed.

  7. DESIGN AN APP: If the above wasn't enough, I'll even walk you through the complete process of sketching/wireframing and designing a real-world app for a social media/dating app. We'll design 3 screens from scratch to complete finish.

  8. DESIGN A WEBSITE: As a final task, you'll be given an assignment with instructions to design a website with all of the things that you've learned during the course. Don't miss this!

- ASSIGNMENTS: After you complete a section, in order to brush up the learned techniques, you'll have to put your skills to the test and design what's required from you. This is how you will master your craft and this is how you'll practice design principles until you get the hang of it. Make sure to never miss an assignment as this is a vital part of the learning process.

- DESIGN A WEBSITE WITH SKILLS LEARNED: With all of the things learned in the last 7-8 hours, as a final assignment and a test, you'll be granted a task that will require you to design a landing page from scratch. If you were able to follow along designing the app, you should have absolutely no problem designing a website from scratch and you'll actually be very surprised how skillful you've become. I'll be taking a detailed look in every one of your submissions regarding this final finished website design. Get to work!

Affinity Designer is a very powerful vector graphics tool which can easily replace Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw in many daily tasks. Affinity Designer is also much cheaper, so it is worth having.

What will you learn from this course?

Learn to use the Pen Tool in Affinity Designer

NOTE: This class' price is fixed. Udemy promos won't apply, so the price won't go any lower.

In this course, you are going to learn to USE THE PEN TOOL FOR GOOD, with 3 different methods I prepared for you, so by the end of the course, you will be able to control it in such a way you won't be frustrated by it anymore.

I prepared the course in such a way that, if one method does not feel good to you, you will still have two additional methods to find your way and finish the exercises and final project. However, I am pretty sure that, with just a bit of practice, you will master the 3 very soon, and combine them in your designs.

You’ll learn about segments, bezier curves, the pen tool, nodes and the node tool. You will also learn how to combine them to get the most out of their powerful possibilities, and master the most important and pivotal tools in vector drawing. For this, we will do some easy to follow exercises, to finally end up creating a more complex one, focusing in how to use the pen tool and a few more tools we will see in the course.

We will use Affinity Designer, but once you’ve learned how to use it, you’ll have a much easier grasp on any other pen tool on a different software, since, even though each one has their own particularities, in essence, they are very similar.

This class is for anyone wanting to learn how to draw with vectors, especially beginners, but also those who having some knowledge, still don’t have a good understanding on how the pen tool works and what are the logics behind it.
