Affinity Designer celebrates anniversary with big discounts

Affinity Designer

Affinity Designer has challenged Photoshop over the last year

It's been a big year for Affinity Designer (opens in new tab), the first Mac app created by Nottingham-based developers and publishers Serif (opens in new tab). Having been showered with five star reviews, it wasn't long until the app became the Apple Editor's Choice and scooped the Apple Design award (opens in new tab).

The success of Affinity Designer has been meteoric, with more artists and web designers discovering how to draw (opens in new tab) and loving how the app has shaken up the graphic design software industry. So to celebrate an amazing year, Serif have cut the price of Affinity Designer by 20% to £29.99 / US$39.99 / €39.99 until 20 October 2015.

"Having spent five years investing in developing the product, the launch of Affinity Designer a year ago was a pretty nerve-wracking event as it was so critical to the company,” said Ashley Hewson, Serif's Managing Director.

“While we obviously hoped for good things, we could not have predicted just how well received and how successful the product has been in its first year."
