There are a number of reasons to condone the redesign, appreciate the injection of colour to reflect the new Metro visual language, respect the modern, elegant feel of the new typeface Segoe. But I have a problem with the icon. The lack of depth or perspective feels inconsistent with other recent designs by the Redmond giant. The new Microsoft frame icon lacks the depth I was expecting. It’s lovely to see the brand colours into a unified element but it’s missing that wow factor for me.
