Microsoft Office’s Fresh Transformation: The New Theme

Microsoft, the leading technology company, is currently busy testing a revamped standard Office theme. This new theme will be introduced next month for all Microsoft 365 subscribers.

Introduction of the Aptos Font

After more than 15 years of faithful service, the familiar Calibri font gives way to Aptos. This new font will become the new standard for popular apps such as Word, Outlook, PowerPoint and Excel. But what makes Aptos so special? It is designed to improve readability and fits perfectly within the modern aesthetic that Microsoft pursues.

A Refreshing Color Palette and Style

In addition to the change in font, Microsoft is also introducing a whole new color palette and styles. This means that the standard documents you create in Office will have a fresh, modern look. The new style is not just limited to colors; even the standard line weights are updated to make the design seamless and contemporary.

What does this mean for Microsoft 365 Users?

For loyal Microsoft 365 users, this means a transition to a more streamlined and aesthetically pleasing experience. Theme changes will be automatic, allowing users to focus on what really matters: creating content.


Microsoft remains committed to innovation and improvement. With the introduction of the new Office theme, the company once again demonstrates its commitment to ease of use and modern design principles. Get ready for a fresh, new Office experience next month!
