微软改变了应用程序的外观,让人们“专注于工作”

微软重新设计了一套程序的应用图标,从Word到Excel,以摆脱用户的使用。way”让他们专注于任务而不是品牌。 微软的内部设计团队重新设计了这些新图标,赋予了应用程序图标更三维(3D)和更丰富多彩的外观,并将每个图标中的字母和符号分开。 微软负责体验和设备设计的总经理乔恩·弗里德曼(Jon Friedman)说,新图标的目标是比以前的图标更大胆、更轻、更友好。 新的图标可以看到字母,例如“W”用于字,包围在一个正方形内,与表示程序的另一个符号相对立。改变渐变的颜色给整个图标一个三维的感觉。 图标的角现在是圆的而不是直的,图标现在是面向直的而不是坐着成一个角度。“大胆,光明hues”现在已经使用了颜色,图标现在是adaptiveveandrdquo,因为每个图标所附的字母可以根据上下文和可用空间进行添加或删除。 这是为了更适合于跨设备的应用。Friedman说,使用它可以保持程序的可识别性,而不必使用字母。这适用于用户从桌面到平板电脑再到移动设备的转换,例如,在移动设备上可能没有足够的空间放置完整的图标。 这些图标现在看起来更关注程序的内容,而不是它们的名称;例如,Powerpoint图标中使用的符号是一个饼图,而Word则是一个内联文档。 我们想要优先考虑人们的内容而不是应用程序或文档,所以我们改变了设计,强调符号而不是字母。弗莱德曼说。我们还去掉了Word、Excel和PowerPoint中文档的边框,强调了句子、单元格和饼图,这是对内容的隐喻,这才是最重要的。这些变化隐喻着微软改变了人们的工作方式,让他们能够专注于自己的工作。 这些新图标是微软更大范围重新设计的一部分。今年早些时候,微软的程序套件改变了用户体验(UX)和图形。 Friedman说,重新设计的主要目的是通过增加程序之间的交叉协作,减少对软件本身的关注,更多地关注其功能,从而消除用户的障碍。 例如,用户现在可以从PowerPoint中插入一张幻灯片到文档中,而不需要离开app,而许多用户现在可以一次团队地处理一个文档,并在不离开程序的情况下进行视频通话。 微软(microsoft)的新一套应用程序图标目前正在推出。

Microsoft has redesigned its app icons for its suite of programs, from Word to Excel, in a bid to “get out of users’ way” and allow them to concentrate on tasks rather than branding. The new icons have been redesigned by Microsoft’s in-house design team, which has given app icons a more three-dimensional (3D) and colourful look and separated out the letter and the symbol within each icon. The new icons aim to be “bolder, lighter and friendlier”, than the previous ones, says Jon Friedman, general manager of experiences and devices design at Microsoft. The new icons see the letter, such as “W” for Word, encased within a square, which is set against another symbol that represents the program. Changing gradients of colour give a 3D feel to the whole icon. The corners of icons are now rounded rather than straight, and the icons are now straight-facing rather than sat at an angle. “Bolder, brighter hues” of colour have now been used, and the icons are now “adaptive”, as the letter attached to each one can be added or removed depending on the context and space available. This aims to be better suited for “cross-device” use, says Friedman, as it looks to retain recognisability of the program without necessarily using the letter. This is intended for when users transition from desktop to tablet to mobile, for instance, where there may not be enough space for the full icon. The icons now look to focus on the contents of programs, rather than their names; for example, the symbol used in the Powerpoint icon is a pie-chart, while for Word, it is a lined document. “We wanted to prioritise people’s content over the app or document, so we changed the design to emphasise the symbol rather than the letter,” says Friedman. “We also removed the border of the document in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and emphasised the sentences, cells and pie-graphs, a metaphor for the content, which is what matters most. These changes are metaphors for Microsoft getting out of [people’s] way and allowing them to focus on their work.” The new icons are part of a wider redesign for Microsoft, which saw its suite of programs change their user experience (UX) and graphics earlier this year. The main aim of the redesign is to remove barriers for users, says Friedman, by increasing cross-collaboration between programs and focusing less on the software itself and more on its capabilities. For instance, users can now insert a slide from a PowerPoint deck into a document without leaving the Word app, while many users can now work on one document in Teams at one time and take video calls without leaving the program. Microsoft’s new suite of app icons is currently rolling out.
