We just lately launched an article on Aptos, Microsoft’s upcoming default font for Workplace. The typeface is about to interchange Calibri, which has served as Microsoft’s official font for greater than 16 years.
Now, Microsoft has introduced its intention to bundle the discharge of Aptos with a new look theme for Workplace. The default font will debut alongside different alterations, equivalent to adjustments to the colour palettes, line weights, and elegance of paperwork.
Essentially the most important distinction between the outdated (left) and new theme (proper) is that the default colours are actually darker and extra muted. The yellow colour has been relegated in favor of darkish inexperienced, probably as a result of yellow shapes are notoriously difficult to see towards a white background.
Total, it appears that evidently Microsoft is trying to make their service really feel extra skilled. The earlier colours felt playful and (if we’re sincere) a little bit low-cost. In distinction, the brand new palette feels extra trendy, sharp, and slick — higher suited to the world’s main phrase processing program.
Microsoft initially rolled out the adjustments completely to Microsoft 365 Insiders earlier this year. The corporate now says they intend to launch the adjustments to the general public someday in September.
