In a post on the company's official newsroom, the following 3 actions were announced effective immediately:

• 90 days of free access to the desktop versions of Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, and Affinity Publisher • 50% off of permanent access to the apps for anyone interested in using them after the 90 day free period • The equivalent of Serif’s annual commissioning budget in the next three months is pledged to pay 100 freelance creatives to work on content
