Blend Newbie Needs to Design His First XAML Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Morning,

    Greetings from a Blend newbie!  I would like to use Blend, if it is the proper tool, to design my first XAML site for a client.  Said client has expressed the need to have a cool design with some nice effects (thinking Silverlight?) and also needs a highly functional site with a built in quote system / shopping cart developed using VB. 

    Questions I have for those more experienced in Blend and Expression Studio:
    1.  Is Blend the best starting point for creating a site mockup for the client?  Is this where Sketchflow comes into play?
    2.  Do you suggest starting the development process with the design elements, or pinning down database connectivity and business logic first?
    3.  How does Expression Design come into play?  Is it used for creating logos and other artwork to be used in the site layout?

    Thanks so much for your help!!
