Affinity Designer for iPad – How to Design A Poster for Circus



In this Affinity Designer for iPad tutorial you will learn how to design a poster and specifically how to draw and put elements together for a circus layout.

I will take you through the whole the process by first creating the vector rays, followed by drawing a curvy shape using the Pen tool, joining paths and adding dashed lines. We will use a Vintage Display typeface for our text and ornamental objects, and add couple of extra elements to complete the poster design idea.

All that with…

  1. Hi Elias! I watched all your AD tutorials and there is something I canโ€™t find anywhere:( do you know if there is option to make circular grids? As you would do them for logo designs… however, I love your tutorials and appreciate them very much!

  2. Hi Elias! Great tutorial, easy to follow and understand, thank you!!! I'm new at affinity, but I love it already. I have a question regarding exporting files. I need vectors in eps format with layers. What is the best way to export files that can be opened in AI with layers I made in AD? Is it possible? I managed to export it as eps, I opened it in AI, but there were no layers and some of the brushes I used in AD were all lost (I expanded all the strokes in AD before exporting). I hope you can help. Thanks again and I'm looking forward to more of your AD tutorials ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hi, great video! But something I'm not seeing in any video is a tool like the shapebuilder tool in Illustrator. I want to put shapes together and cut off what I don't need. But I can't seem to figure it out. Help?

  4. Thank you for making these Affinity Designer tutorials. I enjoy watching to pick up helpful tips here and there. One question, though, why not use the cog tool to create the rays instead of duplicating modified rectangles? Itโ€™s much faster, though had you not done it your way, Iโ€™d have missed out on the transform tips.

  5. Hi.. I am subscribed to your channel..LOVE your videos and how you slowly explain everything you are doing… PERFECT for people learning how to use Affinity Designer…. Now I hate to be a critic…because I seriously loved the tutorial and this vintage design… BUT those squiggly lines you used on the left and right of the word โ€œTHEโ€ were off…the one on the right was closer to the right edge and the one on left was closer to the center.. I watched the entire video hoping you would see and correct it… being somewhat OCD myself, i caught it and drove me nuts during the last part of the video…BUT your designs are GREAT and I look forward to seeing more from you
