Get Creative for Free: Affinity’s Design Suite Now Offers Six-Month Free Trial!

Affinity’s Adobe-Rivaling Creative Suite Free for Six Months

Design enthusiasts, rejoice! Serif, the developer behind the popular Affinity creative suite, is now offering a six-month free trial of its top-tier software. This includes Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, and Affinity Publisher. Available on Mac, Windows PC, and iPad, this offer positions Affinity as a strong contender against Adobe’s professional design apps.

Why Affinity?

Affinity’s unique pricing model has won over many creatives tired of recurring subscription fees. Unlike Adobe, Affinity offers a one-time purchase option. Individual desktop apps are priced at $69.99, while the complete suite costs $164.99. Currently, there’s an enticing 50% discount on all perpetual licenses.

Affinity Publisher $69.99 $34.99
Complete Suite $164.99 $82.49

Addressing Concerns

Some users were worried that Affinity might shift to a subscription model after its acquisition by Canva earlier this year. However, Affinity’s CEO, Ashley Hewson, assures users that they can “try everything and pay nothing” during this trial period. “There’s absolutely no obligation to buy,” he emphasizes.

Industry Insights

In a recent interview with Decoder, Canva CEO Melanie Perkins commented on the competitive landscape. While she didn’t claim Affinity as a complete alternative to Adobe’s Creative Cloud, she highlighted the importance of competition. “The design market has been a one-horse race, which isn’t beneficial for anyone. More options for professional designers can only benefit the industry,” Perkins remarked.

This new offering from Affinity is a golden opportunity for creatives to explore professional-grade tools without financial commitment. Whether you’re a seasoned designer or just starting out, the six-month free trial could be the perfect chance to test Affinity’s capabilities and see how they stack up against Adobe.
