Get the official Affinity Workbooks with 40% off

Press Release   •   Oct 17, 2018 10:12 BST

The official Affinity Workbooks are the fastest, most comprehensive way to master Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer on Mac or Windows – and they’re available now with a 40 per cent discount.

The offer means each Workbook is priced £22.99 / $29.99 / 26,99€ each (+ shipping and handling) exclusively from the Affinity store until Wednesday, 24 October.

Presented in hardback, with more than 400 full colour pages, the Workbooks are bursting with lavishly-illustrated instructions, guides and expert tips to help users get the most from the award-winning apps on Mac or Windows.

Ashley Hewson, Managing Director of Affinity developer Serif, says: “These books are the only official companions to Affinity Photo and Designer that you can buy.

“We created them to offer inspiration and guidance in a high-quality coffee table-style book. Because they focus on professional skills and techniques the content will still be completely relevant even when we release updated versions of the Affinity apps.”

Both books contain an exciting range of easy to follow projects, contributed by photographers and designers from around the world.

Each project is supported by free downloadable resources such as the original source files, project snapshots for reference and final project files, allowing users to follow along and recreate the work.

A hands-on Core Skills section allows users to familiarise themselves with the essential techniques the pros use. There’s also a guide to the user interface of the desktop apps, including panels and toolbars.

As an added bonus, there is a selection of removable keyboard shortcut ‘cheat sheets’ on sturdy card for easy reference.

Affinity is a next-generation suite of award-winning software for creative professionals, comprising Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher.

About Serif

Serif’s global success with its Affinity suite of professional design and photo editing software is built on almost three decades of expertise.

Affinity Designer, winner of an Apple Design Award in 2015, Affinity Photo, named Best Imaging Software by the Technical Image Press Association in 2016, and Affinity Publisher, currently in free public beta, were a result of the vision of the development team at Serif’s headquarters in Nottingham, UK.

Created with the emphasis on speed, power, accuracy and lack of bloat, Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo received a stream of glowing reviews from Mac users around the world, before being launched for Windows and now iPad, where Affinity Photo is Apple's 2017 iPad App of the Year. Affinity Publisher is the third in the initial trio of apps envisaged by the development team.

Their creation marked a change of focus for Serif which, since 1987, had grown a reputation for quality and reliability based on the award-winning Plus range of software for PC. Powerful yet easy to use, the software offered low-cost alternatives to high-end publishing and graphics packages, putting professional effects and demanding publishing tasks within the reach of PC users around the world.

Serif is the winner of over 200 awards internationally, with more than 6.5 million customers worldwide. The company has around 70 employees.
