"Few Applications have transformed my workflow and creativity as much as Substance Designer. It’s design gives artists full control over their own tool-sets and automation opportunities, which only leads to deeper technical understanding and greater creative expression. In today’s production environment, it’s simply hard to imagine a workflow without Substance."
