In May 2020, I was impressed when Affinity offered a 90-day free trial and 50 percent discounts off products to support people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Their products—alternatives to expensive licensing of Adobe’s Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign—offer a significant savings to designers, students, artists, and anyone who needs to manage and edit creative works.
Affinity’s generous offer was available through June 20, 2020.
It’s early 2021, and while we all hoped the COVID pandemic would have improved by now, it hasn’t.
I’m glad to learn Affinity has stepped forward once again to support the creative community, relaunching their 90-day free trial and 50 percent discount off their products.
If you’re not familiar with them, Affinity products are produced by Serif, a company that launched in 1987.
Affinity Design, a vector design application launched in 2014, was a welcome alternative to the creative community weary from Adobe’s licensing changes and price increases.
Affinity products are available for Windows and Mac, and also include iPad versions.
What You Need to Know about the Free Trial and Discounts
Anyone can sign up for the 90-day product trial, with no obligation.
All you need to provide is your name, email address, and country.
Even if you used the trial in 2020, you can sign up for the 90-day free trial of the Mac and Windows versions of Affinity Design, Affinity Photo, or Affinity Publisher.
To purchase your copy of any of their products, visit the Affinity store.
A few more things to know:
- Cost for Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo, and Affinity Publisher is $24.99. All products come with a 14-day money back guarantee.
- Toolbox, brushes, paint bundles, font bundles, effects, and logo templates are all 50% off
- Workbooks and t-shirts are not discounted
If you’re looking for learning resources for their products, Affinity publishes YouTube videos regularly with tips on using their products.
Recent videos include tips and how-tos on creating chalk lettering, bringing sketches to life, and creating dramatic fire effects.
In addition, Affinity offers over 60 video tutorials on the basics of using Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo, and Affinity Publisher, as well as their iPad versions.
Shoutout to Affinity for their support of the creative community during a pandemic we all hope ends soon.
Their product suite offers an excellent alternative to Adobe and their three-month product trial and 50% product discounts provide a great option for anyone looking for design and photo applications.
