Microsoft introduced a completely new icons for Office

03 December, 2018, 07:19 | Author: Vicki Mclaughlin
  • New Office 365 Icons

It is to note that the change to the icons does not mean any functional improvements. The document outline in Microsoft Word and the spreadsheet outline in Excel make way for the lines of text in the Word icon and individual cells in the Excel icon. Probably not, but with Microsoft wanting people to know that their new updates will be significantly different, I guess it makes sense to show this difference from the very icons themselves. The Office icons will get a new look after about half a decade.

The new icons will roll out across the various platform on which Office runs "in the coming months", starting with mobile and Web. Microsoft Office icons are now also doing away with flat design in favour of depth-based 3D-like icons.

"Simplicity and harmony are key visual elements that reflect the seamless connectivity and intuitiveness of Office apps", Microsoft says. "While each icon has a unique and identifiable symbol, there are connections within each app's symbol and the collective suite".

The Insight lander touched down near Mars' equator on the western side of a flat, smooth expanse of lava called Elysium Planitia. On a clear day, the panels provide 600 to 700 watts - enough power to run a kitchen blender and conduct science.

There's no denying that the Office suite of apps is Microsoft's most important product, even more critical for the success of the company than Windows. The icons have also switched up the letter-to-symbol ration, giving two-thirds of the space to the symbol and one-third to the letter.

Microsoft Office has been the gold standard for the word with over 1 billion users across the globe over various platforms like iOS, Android and Mac. These redesigned icons are supposed to reflect how Office has changed in the recent years with emphasis on new AI features and support for collaborative interface. In another response, Friedman said the Office icons are just a beginning of a "cross-company effort to update all icons in the same style".

Access, Visio, Publisher, and Project aren't featured among the new icons, because although Microsoft continues to distribute them, the applications are all functionally abandonware, with no new feature work being performed.
