Microsoft Office 2007 Gets New Icons

It looks like the new Microsoft Office 2007 icons are now available for your viewing pleasure. Here is what Microsoft has to say about their new icons:

The fresh, new product icons are a reflection of the meticulous attention to detail used in this release as they visually complement the ribbon and the branding style while still helping users quickly locate an Office program.

Reading that makes you wonder if they spent more time designing the icons or coming up with that description! The icons seem to go against the more calm and traditional icons that we are use to seeing with Office but apparently they are designed to “visually compliment the ribbon”.

Thanks for the tip Karl!
