For me, Expression was just familiar enough to start using without any training, but new enough that I didn’t feel that I was using all the features I needed.
Thanks to my co-worker Marcos, who pointed me to a great series of Expression videos on the Microsoft Expression website. The videos are titled “Getting Started with Silverlight – For Designers,” but I found the content was very valuable as a developer unfamiliar with design processes.
The videos provide a great introduction to taking full advantage of the design and animation tools inside the Expression Studio. I’m hoping to use what I learned on my project and also as material for a future blog post!
