Windows 8 tile icons are simple white icons on a single color. Microsoft also reflected the look on their main site as well as in Visual Studio 2012. PlayStation Store’s new look: the same hard-edged simple icons on a single background color. A bunch of sites and applications are doing this…ironing out and de-colorizing their icons. Is this good or not? I guess the eyes scan such things quickly and they work better in peripheral vision…but color may convey some information too. Time will tell, I guess.
Old Windows icon
Let’s iron it out, shall we?
