Creating a Banner Header - Suggestions? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm somewhat new to Expressions Blend/Design.

    Should I be creating the following header in Design or Blend?   ...and if so what would be the best tool/control to use and how?  Sorry, very new to the design/graphics part of development.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

  • Hi Shayska,

    I haven't used ExBlend myself, (so correct me if I'm wrong guys)
    but I assume that image will be your Header / Navigation for your website

    I would say design the blue colors in Expression Design
    1) the darker blue from the main header
    2) the lighter blue for the navigation buttons
    Then use them as background images for your navigation header and buttons
    Then you can use Expression Web to style & position the navigation text

    Hope this helps

  • I'd guess that if one is sufficiently well skilled to use Blend then that is the way to go.

    On the other hand, if team working methods require sharing stuff then Design might be a better starting point.

    Maybe there are some advantages in terms of asset handling?
