Serif’s Affinity Publisher Available Now in Free Public Beta

Serif has just announced that Affinity Publisher, the company’s new Desktop Publishing app, is now available in a Free public beta. The company had revealed that it was working on a third app, after Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, via a tweet back in July.

You can download the free beta of Affinity Publisher for both Mac and Windows systems, with the fairly straightforward system requirements available here. The company does note that this is a beta, so you should not use it for any important production work at this time.

It’s great to see Serif working on these incredible alternatives for Adobe’s apps like Illustrator, Photoshop, and now InDesign. I’ve downloaded the beta on my Mac and will be sharing my thoughts here very soon.


A Look at Some Stunning Illustrations Created by Top Artists During the Beta of Affinity Designer for iPad

Earlier this week, Serif Ltd. released Affinity Designer for iPad, which the company had been working on for quite some time now. Here’s a collection of some incredible illustrations and artwork created by some top designers that they worked with during the app’s beta.

In 2018, we commissioned a select group of creatives to take part in a special Affinity Designer for iPad beta. The purpose of this was to get a mix of designers and illustrators to test the most ambitious app we’ve ever made. We recruited a mix of seasoned Affinity users, and some who’d never used Affinity for their work. Some of the participants had never used an iPad in their creative workflow either.

We set them all the same challenge… create your style of work using your workflow in Affinity Designer for iPad and tell us what you think of it.

The linked article has some of the most impressive work we’ve seen created on the iPad. You can grab Affinity Designer on the App Store for iPad here.
