Working with global colours

Affinity Designer Video Tutorial

Like compounds, global colours are one of those ‘underrated’ functions when working in Affinity Designer. Yet, they are worthy of taking a good look at, as they can make a big difference to tedious tasks.

I hope you enjoyed this video tutorial on working with global colours in Affinity Designer. If you work with variations, logos, or print design, I would strongly suggest you give the function a go! Play with it – not just for something as trivial as Christmas baubles – but for logos and labels. Define your limited colours as global and quickly alter a whole bunch of shapes with a few clicks. Enjoy!
