With the global business launch of Microsoft’s elusively-impressive Office 2010 productivity suite today, Amazon.com has unleashed the box arts for each of the individual (fourteen) Office standalone applications (Word, Excel, etc.) to satisfy your product packaging-fetishes.
In stark contrast to the previous box art, the new packaging takes on the recent trend of simplification in Microsoft box arts to a whole new level with a design that boils down to just a gradient, the name of the product and the icon. In fact the only functionally-unnecessary element in the whole design is the reflection of the icon.
As simple and colorful as they may seem, it actually looks pretty cool.
