Building on the huge success of its Lockdown 2020 sessions that ran earlier this year, Serif has announced that every Thursday at 4pm BST throughout September and October they’ll be premiering more inspirational, free video sessions led by top creatives who use Affinity on the official Affinity YouTube channel.

Each week, top creatives, including conceptual photographer Elena Paraskeva, art director Sphelele Gumede, motion graphics specialist Sam Woodhall and creative technologist and artist VR Human will invite you into their world to show you how they create fantastic work in Affinity. When their pre-recorded session airs, each artist will be available on YouTube’s Live Chat so you can ask questions, and free content will even be provided for some of the sessions so that you can have a go for yourself.

As well as fascinating insights from pro-users, Serif’s in-house product experts James Ritson, Matt Searston and Emily Goater will guide you through projects they’ve created in the apps, providing a plethora of valuable tips along the way.

The theme for the premiere each week will be announced on Serif’s social channels, which can found here: FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

If you’ve missed Serif’s previous creative sessions, you can view the full playlist here and above. Hit the Playlist button in the top right of the Video for the full list of shows.
