I was going through the archives and found this video that Scott Barnes (@Mossyblog) recorded last year.
The video is still relevant for Windows 8 developers. In the video, Scott explains the steps he takes to make a stylised "Isometric Workflow" that would work well inside of a dashboard application.
The video was done as a "Part 1", but unfortunately it looks like he never did record any further parts.
Enjoy the video, it is great to see how other people work with their tools.
