I just cancelled my Adobe CC subscription and I feel great.

    Nice. I have rid my personal macs of all Adobe Software except Lightroom which i use to edit my photos en masse and then save the good jpgs to my Photos/iCloud Library.

    On my work macs however, I still have to use Adobe stuff as I work as part of a team in an agency. And we have legacy files to take care of as well as suppliers that require certain files.

    Funnily enough even though there is no competitor to Indesign, that's probably the easiest to replace as most printers just want PDF files.

    I use Sketch as I'm the primary web designer. I have had a lot of issues getting my designs to larger agencies that are building the designs as they have requested layered PNGS or PSDS. So that's been a ball ache.

    As for illustrator. I'm not sure I could design logos in anything else. I know it like the back of my hand. But i am yet to try affinity designer… so that could change. I could use Sketch for logo design but, it's not quite there for that. Simple logos, sure, but for full on logos that require brand guidelines and spot colours etc. it is not the right choice.

      Definitely wouldn't recommend Sketch for logo design. I'm far from an expert in AI, but I found Affinity Designer great for more complex vector work. Would definitely recommend it.
