As Affinity Designer forays into Windows, creative professionals, illustrators, artists, and designers alike can now include the new program to their lineup and work on creating and building illustrations, web graphics, concept art, logos, and more. The app was available for a discounted price with a free kit during its beta phase in November 2016 but is now available for $49.99 with the Grade UI Kit sold separately.


Serif’s managing director, Ashley Hewson stated:

When we launched Affinity Designer we never expected the impact it has made. Seeing it so widely adopted by designers around the world – and all the incredible work people are creating with it – has been such a rewarding experience for the team here.

Another good news is that all of Affinity Designer’s features in Mac are also available in Windows! This allows for cross-platform compatibility between the two operating systems. The comprehensive toolset includes non-destructive effects and adjustment layers, a complete vector and pixel toolset, effortless PSD, SVG, EPS, PNG, and PDF/X handling, unlimited artboards with device presets, and more.


According to Serif, it claims that Affinity Designer is the “fastest, smoothest, and most precise vector graphic design software” to date, aiming to revolutionize the whole work process for both Mac and Windows users.


Our designers at MicroCreatives are using Windows so Affinity Designer being finally available for Windows users is definitely a good thing for us. It’s a great addition to other revolutionary design and collaboration programs we use daily, such as design apps like Adobe programs and InVision, as well as project management systems like Asana, Trello, and Jira.
