WELL DONE WITH THE OFFICE LOGO although I don't like the individual icons. I find Metro style far too ugly but that Office logo with gradients looks simply superb. Because it's not Metro-style. Can I steal it for my avatar? :p

Well I meant your improvements to the app icons also is certainly better but fundamentally I don't like MS's Metro style. Back to the dark ages before High Color was introduced with Windows 95. And then they call it "Modern" :p

Perfect, the other ones are too flat and I really don't like them.

I like them, but what is casting the shadow on the top left of the main icon? It looks like it's shadowed on the wrong side.

You took it and added tones to it which won't fit into the 'modern' style. Would fit in on Windows 7.

I did some fixes to the icons and who you like it better now. It's in a high res too.

Hey ActionPack, great look on the icons!

One minor suggestion, if you don't mind? Try to make the Outlook icon back to the old color of yellowish-orange.

I think MS went overboard with all the blue. Word and Visio is enough.

Above is a link to the Office 2013 page. I post it there. I want to get a lot of comments on this and see if Microsoft would say something about this!

These icons are much better than the beta ones...

The new one in the front page news looks very much like these

Was not talking about the Metro but the desktop itself. I truly believe that the desktop does not need to go into Metro looking.


I think it does need to go metro or it looks funny switching between the two... consistency is broken. I am replacing all the 'retro' icons with 'metro' icons (where I can) on my server 2012 install. It drives me nuts seeing the old icons in metro look.

They need to get rid of the old icons... kid you not there's windows 98 era icons in there.

It's wierd using office 2013 in windows 7 becuase the visual styling clashes so much.... It would be too much work to get 7 to blend in so I deal with it. I will switch to 2012 full time soon. For now I have it in a VM to play with.


They do look very nice. Your mock-up is leading me to seriously think hard about whether the lack of gradients, shadows etc. in most "Metro" products is really a good approach or not.


I agree becuase for some things it does screwy things with my eyes.... might be too much skooma though... LOL...
