Serif Affinity Designer Review

It’s easy to develop an affinity for Serif’s latest release of its vector editing graphic design software, Affinity Designer 1.10.0. That's high praise from this writer, a longtime Adobe Illustrator user. When the British-born app debuted in 2014 as a Mac-only tool, Windows users had already been using the company’s DrawPlus vector editing tool. Soon after, DrawPlus was scrapped, and so began the dual-platform succession of the Affinity line, which includes the vector-based Designer, pixel-based Affinity Photo, and Affinity Publisher for producing long documents.

Order’s Identity For Research-Collecting Heyday Offers A Welcoming Helping Hand

Heyday is a productivity tool that helps with automatic research. The tool recently worked with the design studio Order, based in Brooklyn, to create an identity that reflects transparency and excellence. Order ultimately decided on a hand illustration, reflective of Heyday’s “helping hand” mentality. The hand system was then adapted into a range of hand motions creating a dynamic set of illustrative visual cues. Furthermore, the vibrant typography helps establish the flexibility and consistency of the brand in a way that’s not too unwelcomely obvious. Heyday’s branding system is approachable and welcoming, something that not many productivity tools can pat themselves on the back for, a job well done.
