Let me take you take you step-by-step through all the tools, effects and techniques that come with the software.
This course is not for advanced Affinity Designer users, but if you are a total beginner you will love the course content.
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.
  • Once your nifty design is ready, you probably want to put in front of all your friends' faces, right? In section 12 you will learn how to save and share your work with the world of internet.
  • In the bonus section you will learn how to use the pixel tools in Affinity Designer, should you wish to quickly tweak your photos, too.
  • I assume that you are a total beginner so in the first section you will learn what Affinity Designer is and what its core features are, including a unique concept of 3 different tool sets called Personas.
  • Looking at any piece of software that you are unfamiliar with can cause headaches. That's why Section 2 is all about painless learning how to use Designer's interface.
  • Are you thinking about becoming a web designer? Then you need to know how to create and use artboards, so your workflow is fast and professional. Have a look at Section 4.
  • If pixel perfect designs are all you are dreaming of, jump right into Section 5.
  • Almost each and every of your designs is going to use some form of text. If you want to quickly learn how to add and transform type in Affinity Designer, have a look at Section 9.
  • The software comes with powerful panels. The most important of them is the Layers panel. You will learn all about panels and layers in sections 10 and 11.

This course is very clear and concise, and the lessons are considerably interesting, all the while not being to long at only 3-5mins on average; I never fell asleep.This course will give you a broad view knowledge of each of the features available in Affinity Designer. If you need a long drawn out course that digs deep into the inner workings of features with projects then you will step up to a different 20hr course (but that may take too long for some people to get up and running), I like this course as I now feel confident to use the software I bought.I highly recommend this course!

This course gives a very thorough introduction to the program itself - what all the buttons, tools, menus, effects, etc., do. So if you are wondering what that button over there does, Dawid probably will tell you. If not, just ask him, he will answer! It does need some updating for AD version 1.7 because things are different there (I believe he is working on that). And it is not really a project based class, there are no "assignments" to draw a scene or a dog, etc. But I did follow along either just trying all the things he did, or attempting to replicate some of the artwork he had on his screen. I had taken another AD class before this which was about creating 2D art and while it was also very good, the instructor only explained the tools, etc., that you needed to get each project done. It left me not knowing what 50% or more of what the software could do, which is what lead me to taking this class. I feel more comfortable getting around the program now and look forward to the other classes of Dawid's that I have already signed up for. He's a very good teacher! Thanks!

Great! Thorough and easy to understand. The instructor takes his time without being too slow. I learned a ton.

Accent made some keys words hard to understand. English as second language must be spoken slower and always pause slightly between words. Un like other languages do not compress words together. Also we are not in a race against time. Also he also skipped at least one mouse click that made me stop and rewind.

The information is clear, organised and easy to follow.

Loved the Course, but such a lot to take in. I found the pace rather fast for me and could not always follow which tools you were pointing out. The best help was the green encircling of items that were being used. I certainly will have to repeat this Course quite a few times. Also, the volume of the Course on my Mac Book Pro was not loud enough so I had to download the app Boom 2 to enhance the sound.

Just what I was looking for in a course.The instructor covers all the basics and more.He knows his stuff. I will be taking more of his classes.

It is an excellent introductory course for Affinity Designer. I have a learn quite a bit. The instructor is knowledgeable on the subject and presents the the topics at an easy pace.

Thorough but clear and simply explained. Great job!

Great course!

very Crisp and Precise.

great course, very detailed and I learned a lot. Although this is not the first beginner course of AD I follow: for sure it's the most comprehensive. Very handy to also have the pdf! really a time saver if you want to refresh your memory.
