07 Christmas pattern with Assets and Symbols – Affinity Designer

In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a seamless, repeating Christmas pattern using assets and symbols.
I will teach you the essential difference between assets and symbols. Assets are simply globally available building blocks that you can use in all your illustrations/ drawings. Symbols are only available in the documents where they are created.

The drawing of the pattern start on 12:48 in the tutorial.

The function of the symbols I have already explained in these two tutorials:


My little Christmas present

You can download the compressed Assets file with the Christmas symbols, as demonstrated in the tutorial, when you click on this link: X-MAS.afassets
