Office 2008 Icons

Microsoft reveals, yet again, why design is important. Their new icons released in Office 2008 for Mac have surprisingly gotten even worse. They already had the bubble-letter, glossy-glare thing going on. Why not add a white line around it?

Add all of this on top of Apple’s transparent and reflective dock and you end up with what look like really shiny (completely illegible) blobs of color. At least they stuck with the same color coding for their apps.
