2 min read

Join award-winning, illustrative designer Steve Simpson as he reveals his secrets for illustrating barcodes in Affinity Designer for iPad.

Steve will be available on YouTube’s Live Chat for this session’s premiere on Monday, 18 May 2020 at 4pm BST.

We’ll also be providing free access to a sample barcode so you can try out his method, which you can access at:

Renowned for his hand lettered packaging design, illustrated barcodes and children’s toy characters, Steve’s characteristically playful inspiration has its roots in the Arts & Crafts and folk art. Embracing mid-century traditions of illustration and graphic design, his work has been sought after by a diverse range of international clients, and from one-inch postage stamps to a 200 ft screen in Times Square.
