A Student’s Smart Microsoft Rebranding Is Better Than The Real Thing

10 Jul

When Microsoft unveiled their new branding, I was mildly impressed. It was simple, but too much like what they’d already done; not enough impact for my taste. This student’s spectacular 3-day rebranding project proves that you can take an already successful brand, keep simplicity, and still make an impact. If anything, this is full of great examples of how to mock up a rebrand.

These allow the icon to work under different umbrellas, while maintaining the overall identity.

This guy’s stuff is crazy awesome. Though his stuff varies, it’s cohesive as well. He has a warm, fun, and illustrative style to his work. Lovin’ it.
