One of the most iconic and famous software products from Microsoft, Microsoft Office is getting an exciting design overhaul. The iconography of Office is being redesigned by Microsoft as part of a design overhaul to implement unique and fluent design language across all platforms.
The new look replaces the flat design for a thicker 3D-like design. Previously, Microsoft refreshed the design of their icons fever years ago in 2013, after which they focused more on their internet-connected cloud services. Recently they have been working on infusing Office with AI-powered search and suggestion features.
The head designer for Microsoft Office company explained the design philosophy of Microsoft office by emphasizing the core focus of their design language which has always been strong colors, he further highlighted that Color differentiates apps and creates personality. He further mentioned that the company has chosen hues for the new icons which are bolder, lighter, and friendlier to use.
Friedman also mentioned that traditionally the letter occupied two-thirds of the icon while the symbol took one-third. The ratio has now been tweaked and the emphasis is more on the icon rather than the symbol as according to Office’s design head, “the symbol speaks more to people’s creations.”
Ever since the death of Windows Phone, Microsoft has changed its goal and focus and have embraced other platforms in order to spread their ecosystem. The office suite can be found on iOS, macOS, and Android and the exact purpose of this design overhaul is to have a common design language that transcends all platforms.
