New Product Icons for Office 2007

Designing Office 2007 icons ...

"One of the projects our design team has been working on for the last year or so has been the development of a new suite of product icons for Office 2007.

Here are the 32x32 versions of the icons which will appear in the final product: (below)

The design team has been working on these icons for quite a long time; it has been a significant design challenge to make the icons feel like a family, yet for each to be symbolic enough to stand out on its own. Each of the designs has to scale all the way from a huge 128x128 full-color alpha-blended icon for Windows Vista down to an itty-bitty 8x8 badge on top of a 16-color document icon.

Interestingly, even something seemingly as innocuous as changing the product icons has a usability component."   (Continued via Jensen Harris)       [Usability Resources]
