Welcome! This area of the KC Designs website will contain tutorials based around the use of the Affinity range of apps, currently Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and, soon to be released, Affinity Publisher. These tutorials are the result of over 20 years’ worth of experience in digital design; however, I am still learning to create better illustrations and other graphics on a daily basis. These pages will grow to be, I hope, a collection of useful hints, tips and ideas; they are in no way a substitute for the excellent User Guides and online help provided within the programs and I strongly endorse referring to them alongside these pages. The driving desire behind these pages is simply to share the fun I’ve discovered using Serif’s Affinity Software and the hope that they will inspire others to discover the fun too…
Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher
Although one particular program version may be referred to, many of the tutorials and projects will work on other versions too. If a particular version is needed (because of new features) this will be clearly stated.
These pages are divided to form tutorials, projects and, where appropriate, resources relating to the various Affinity apps. Elements from some tutorials do cross over between the applications, where this happens, links are provided within the tutorial and the cross over title is also given. As tutorials or projects for other programs from the Affinity stable become available, they will be added to the categories or Recent Tutorials links on this page as a jumping off point.
