Once ‘Office’ was mainly used by the consumer as a means to type a letter but now Office is so much more. Chances are that you will come into daily contact with the entire Office package in the form of Office 365 that is often used in companies and schools.

With such a large metamorphosis (which is increasingly showing itself in the cloud) a new set of icons reflects the new vision for Microsoft Office. In an article on Medium, Jon Friedman, head of the Microsoft Office design team, gives more information about the reasoning behind the new design.

Signal to the customer

It has been since 2013 that the icons have been given a new design. “Meanwhile, the way people work has changed enormously,” Friedman writes in the article. “In order to support this way of working, Office is transforming itself into a platform that enables collaboration via virtually every device. As a signal to our customers, we have allowed our Office icons to evolve to reflect these important product changes. ”

The new icons will be rolled out over the coming months, starting with the web version and mobile platforms. Of course, there are many other less current Office apps that have not yet been proposed a new logo, but Jon Friedman clarifies in a reaction that this is just the beginning. Eventually, all Office products will receive a logo in the same style.
