There has been plenty of buzz around the tech blogs lately about the design changes at Microsoft. After the redesigned Windows logo was released back in February, several other logos have been leaked and other have been officially released by Microsoft, all designed to fit with the new "Metro" design language. This week saw a major such logo change, as Steve Ballmer unveiled Office 2013 on Monday, June 16.
The last Office logo was unveiled in 2009 and created for Office 2010. It used a modified version of the mark introduced for Office 2003 that replaced the puzzle piece icon.
The new Office logo was first leaked by cnBeta, the same Chinese website that leaked the Windows 8 logo. And what is the new mark supposed to be? There doesn't seem to be any official description, but previous unconfirmed report have said both open door and abstract O.
