Filetype Icon Refresh in Microsoft Office

Following the exciting redesign of our Office app badges, we had to give the same love and attention to our library of filetype icons. We’ve updated some key elements by incorporating our new brand colors into our existing Fluent palettes. We simplified elements, made the corners a little rounder, and created a system of three icon silhouettes: Office document, square, and landscape. We’re confident that our users will find these friendlier and easier to scan. Check them out in Outlook for iOS/Android, OneDrive, and other Office products.

🙌to @Miles Fitzgerald for direction and guidance. ✌️ to fellow designers Daniela Dimitrova and Christopher Wymer for making this a collaborative process.
