Affinity Designer – Lighthouse 2


Software: Affinity Designer

Tutorial: How to Create a Lighthouse in Adobe Illustrator – Envato Tuts

Another flat art image? Another Lighthouse? Well…. yes. I found this tutorial and it gave me another image to create in Affinity Designer. Compared to the other lighthouse image this image is more detailed and it gave me some more experience using the advanced tools in Affinity Designer. Once again this tutorial that uses instructions for Adobe Illustrator, so I had to translate the instructions into Affinity Designer. This Illuistrator to Affinity Designer translation went very well indeed.

Tutorial: Create a Detailed Lighthouse Flat Icon in Affinity Designer –  Design Cuts

This image is different, not in it’s design, but the software used to create this lighthouse image. In this case the software used is Affinity Designer, which can be viewed as a lower cost version of Adobe Illustrator. The cool thing is Affinity Designer maybe low cost (under $80 CDN), but it is a very polished and effective piece of software. Is it a reasonable replacement for Illustrator.

The design itself is flat art icon, like the ice cream image I created in October, is designed to work in effectively on mobile screens. The basic layout works event at a small size.
