Designing with Microsoft Expression Blend

Notice: This is a discussion thread for comments about the SitePoint article, Designing with Microsoft Expression Blend.

Picking up where he left off last time with the SketchFlow article, User Experience guru Shane Morris delves deeper into the Expression Blend bag of tricks in today’s tutorial [URL=“”]Designing with Microsoft Expression Blend.

Previously we learned how to build a prototype, and this time Shane shows us how to push that prototype into production by using Blend to create Silverlight applications. Along the way we’ll cover navigation, formatting and styling elements, layout containers, and how to use templates for reusable styles.

As you read through the article you’ll discover how designer-friendly Expression Blend can be, with it’s capacity to keep the designer in the driver’s seat even through the process of building the rich user interface.

We have a special quiz for you to take on once you’ve jumped into the [URL=“”]tutorial, so why not test yourself when you’re done?
