New Microsoft Office icons for O365

Microsoft has redesigned Office icons for Office 365. The new icons will be rolling out “in the coming months”, starting with mobile and web.

The new icons reflect upon the evolution of the Office product and its rich history.  While each icon has a unique and identifiable symbol, there are connections within each app’s symbol and the collective suite. 

The new design decouples the letter and the symbol in the icon, to maintain familiarity while still emphasizing on simplicity.
