Microsoft’s redesigned Office 365 app icons generated a lot of buzz when they were announced late last month. While their rollout to users has yet to be completed, Microsoft has collaborated with the design studio, Tendril, to produce two stylised videos that showcase the modern design aesthetic that the company was aiming for with the new icons.

“The film is structured in chapters, each relating to a key concept of the redesign. Each chapter was given a corresponding visual metaphor, inspired by Microsoft’s Fluent Design,” a statement on the Tendril website reads. You can watch the two short films below.

Microsoft’s newly-redesigned app icons will eventually replace the existing ones for apps such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, Outlook, Skype, and Teams just to name a few.
