Affinity Designer – Document Templates

Affinity Designer comes bundled with a large collection document templates that make your life that much easier when creating new digital art.

Being a designer for screens this day and age means you need to understand the real estate a given device allows you to create within. Understanding the boundaries is half the problem. Executing a great user experience is the other half.

Document templates inside Affinity Designer v1.5.4 include presets for Print, Photo, Web, and Device. Within these categories, you can dive deeper and create many artboards of the same size or different sizes completely.

Here’s the list of all the presets to give you some perspective:
