If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.</P><P style="MARGIN: 0px">To create compelling interactive experiences, design and development teams need far better tools and processes for prototyping, wireframing, and creating demos - and for transforming those artifacts into finished sites and applications. Microsoft Expression Blend 3's breakthrough SketchFlow tool has been designed from the ground up to simplify, streamline, and accelerate every aspect of the prototyping process, enabling design organizations to come together far more effectively, and to visualize users experiences with unprecedented power. This book presents the first complete SketchFlow tutorial and reference, as well as eighteen case studies showing how SketchFlow can be used to achieve better results and higher ROI. The authors begin by outlining what's "broken" about today's web design processes, and explaining what can be done to fix them. Next, they show how to apply SketchFlow to enhance every step of the design process, from collecting assets and designing flows through working with data, storyboards, timelines, behaviors, annotations, and user feedback. Readers will learn how to rapidly move from creative brief to working prototype; iterate sketches and become increasingly more detailed; and prepare to move rapidly from prototype to state-of-the-art finished application. There will be a foreword by Human-Computer Interaction pioneer Bill Buxton, and endorsements from many of the design field's leading innovators. </P> <UL> <LI>Master a powerful new web design and development process that delivers far better results, more rapidly and efficiently</LI> <LI>Use Expression Blend 3's breakthrough SketchFlow tool to create wireframes, prototypes, and demos faster than ever before</LI> <LI>An indispensable resource for every digital agency, interactive boutique, and internal web design/development team</LI></UL>
