Anyone who owns there owns a personal business or wants to create their own marketing materials at an affordable price; or looking looking to make sure they are using leading edge technology and utilize on their mobile devices at full throttle and usability.

Or, anyone with any creative talent - Check Affinity Designer out. ;)

In other words, parents you may notice your kids want to express there talents.

Creativity "breeds" innovation if you give your kids the tools.

The "Publisher" is coming (public Beta dropping Friday) 
from Affinity which has been long-awaited; the Tri-fecta to take Adobe on (bye Adobe). Adobe has some competition and Serif/Affinity - they've mastered mobile UX and usabilty...

Publisher Beta dropped today!

    Haven't tried it, but refreshing to have a fully capable alternative to Adobe

    I have been using Serif's older desktop publisher PagePlus almost 10 years and really liked it. Just installed Affinity Publisher beta after long wait. It's a really good start. I don't have MS Word or any Adobe stuff...I don't need them, just enjoying Serif stuff :-)

    Have you tried LibreOffice?
    Sure, using it with MS Word-files etc, but I like Serif PP more when doing something from the scratch.

    PagePlus was my bread and butter for writing specs to communicate (Media Paradise and Serif made it easy and affordable). Affinity Publisher took a year or two too long, but a definately a good start.

    Their Designer software is groundbreaking.

    I use Techsmith's Snagit and Camtasia for video. Another great affordable software that changes how you're able to communicate with media.

    They are incredible adobe alternatives. It’s wonderful having all the same features in the iPad apps too.
