  • Visual Studio = Developer Tool

    Blend = Designer Tool

     

    A designer would feel immediately at home when using Blend, even for the first time (this is based on my experience with the designers I have worked with). I use Blend myself for editing XAML, it's much faster than Visual Studio for all design purposes. Visual Studio on the other hand has intellisense and other cool developer tools.

     

    I would recommend to learn to use or at least get comfortable with using both tools
