Overview

Microsoft had a strong set of identification based equities, however, the expression did not allow for stretch to all products and initiatives, and did not allow for storytelling with deeper emotional connection.

 

We created a tonality spectrum that allowed us to build identities and initiatives that are inherently Microsoft but allow for differing expression for different purposes.
