iPad Surface Design in Affinity Designer: Vectors, Textures, Artboards, and Repeat Patterns
- you can see a live preview of your pattern as you create it, so it’s easy to place your repeat elements in the right place, and move them around as you add elements to your pattern
- Affinity designer has no image size limits, so you can create large images for print on demand sites, client work, or large art prints
- you can easily make changes to the colors, sizes, and textures of your images without losing image quality
- you can set up artboards so that your inspiration, repeat block, and finished repeat square are all on the same document
- you can also work with both vector and raster images, so whatever project you’re working on, you can create the exact image type that you need
- Affinity Designer makes it easy to export your files in all of the common file types, so you can easily move files you make in Affinity programs like Procreate, Photoshop, and Illustrator
- you can save the vector shapes you create, so you can quickly use them in other illustrations
- you can also use text in Affinity designer, and you can even import your own fonts
