Driven by photographers and designers from the outset, Affinity is the new name in high quality, next-generation creative apps for professionals (Design, Photo, and Publishing). Conceived and developed by a passionate team of artists and programmers, Affinity gives creatives exactly what they need for the highest quality artwork, photos and designs—accurate, high quality tools in fast, innovative, reliable apps with flair.
Serif had been developing Windows software for 20 years when our Head of Development – Tony Brightman – gave a presentation of a new idea…
The idea was to develop a whole new range of professional graphics software. These apps would be special in their conception – built from the ground up with the workflow of creative professionals in mind. It meant throwing away all the code we had built up over the years, but he wanted to create something that would set a new, higher standard for creative design apps. His vision set out the key criteria that this new range would have to fulfil:
Lightning fast - in particular taking advantage of all latest CPU and GPU chipsets available Cover the core disciplines of photo editing, vector drawing and desktop publishing Use exactly the same file format between applications Have no bloat - utilize a concept of personas to organize the UI into different use cases Be unashamedly pro - core requirements like CMYK and 16 bit would be built in from the start and not allow wizards or anything else get in the way of a pro workflow

Eagerly awaiting when this comes out and I can bag Adobe Creative Suite and Adobe's subscription prices.
Been promised for a few year now - but these programs aren't that simple to write.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
