Microsoft has been slowly rolling out new Fluent-design-inspired icons for its various software products, and now a new version for one of their most important back-office products has surfaced.
The old logo for Microsoft Exchange can be seen above, and below appears to be an updated version taken from a Microsoft trademark filling.
The design appears at once simplified from the original version and also less stark and more accessible.
Microsoft notes “The mark consists of a stylized letter X appearing in varying shades of the color blue with a square shape appearing in the color blue and containing the letter E appearing in the color white superimposed over the left side of the stylized letter X,” and is designed to represent “Computer software for information management, data and text processing, networking, electronic mail and other electronic communications in the nature of private network and global computer network communications…”
Microsoft’s logo redesign appears to be nearing completion, though we wonder why Microsoft did not simply release a revamp for all the logos at the same time.
