iZufall Project – From Concept to Design using Expression Design


It took way too long but now it’s here: My first video tutorial covering the overall design process of the iZufall.com website using Microsoft Expression Design. In the video I cover the overall design idea, how to import vectorized graphics form Adobe Illustrator and some other neat little things in the program.

Staying true to the Microsoft Expression experience the video is a Silverlight application hosted on Microsoft Silverlight Streaming. As you can see from my previous post I had some difficulties actually creating, uploading and posting the application but then a little bird tipped me off to this article that explains how to post Silverlight Streaming apps using iFrames and now it works splendidly.

So, without further ado, here is the first video. If you want a larger version to see all the small intricacies click here to openn a separate window. I advise you to do so so you can see what I’m doing.

Just a note: You’ll need to install the Silverlight RC plug-in to be able to play my video. It’s a small 2mb download that is completely safe, free and platform independent. You can download Silverlight by clicking here.
