Affinity Designer is the fastest, smoothest, most precise vector graphic design software around.

Built from the ground up over a five-year period, every feature, tool, panel and function has been developed with the needs of creative professionals at its core. With continuous innovation and development, the result is a ground-breaking application that will revolutionise how you work.

This is a perpetual licence for Affinity Designer 1.x. For a single, one-off price you will own the current version of the app (on your chosen operating system). It’s yours to keep and you’ll even receive free updates of the software until version 2 becomes available (no planned date currently). You can then simply continue using the version you have or choose to upgrade to version 2 for an additional cost.

Volume licence pricing is available to educational customers, please e-mail sales@educandi.co.uk for a quotation.
