Taking Microsoft Expression Suite to Task – And Blogging About It

Last Thursday Pink & Yellow Media were lucky enough to be invited to an event in downtown Vancouver presenting the new web and design tools from Microsoft: The Microsoft Expression Suite (you can read about the event in our our technology blog Seeing as much of Pink & Yellow Media’s business comes from web design this suite is right up our aley. The question is if it’s good enough to replace the current tool set we are using, namely Macromedia Studio MX2004 and Adobe CS2. To help us decide the people at Microsoft were kind enough to hand out copies of the entire suite to the attendees to try out. And that’s exactly what we intend to do.

In the days, weeks and months to come we will take the entire suite to task to see just how powerful it is and whether it makes things easier or if it’s just a different way of doing the same things.

We recently took on a web design project for a small upstart called Zufall and we intend to design the entire site using only Microsoft Expression (maybe with the exception of some photo editing in PhotoShop) to really give it a good run and see what it can do.

Stay tuned as we start grinding…
