The announced products and their code names are Expression code-named "Acrylic Graphic Designer," a painting, illustration and effects tool for creating graphic designs; Expression code-named "Sparkle Interactive Designer," a user-interface design tool for modern application development using the Windows® Presentation Foundation; and Expression code-named "Quartz Web Designer," a layout and design tool for creating Web sites. Incorporating design concepts into the development process has typically been difficult due to communication and technical gaps between design and development teams. With its Expression family of products, Microsoft bridges these gaps by leveraging common file types and languages such as Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), HTML and ASP.NET and through seamless integration with Microsoft Visual Studio®, which greatly simplifies development processes and maximizes the creative solutions that teams can deliver. These tools enable designers to explore a wide range of creative options using vector and bitmaps graphics, 3-D content, rich text, media, animation and interactivity, and then to integrate those designs seamlessly with developer code and functionality created using the Visual Studio family of professional development tools.
