Visual Design and Art Direction
Andrew Kim

In 2014, I was a member of a small group of designers that defined the visual design and art direction of a new, cohesive design approach for Microsoft software. This is now called the "Microsoft Design Language". We maintained our existing heritage but developed and refined everything from iconography, color theory to the grid system. Our work became the foundation and guideline for Windows 10, which encompasses everything from mobile phones to HoloLens. Windows 10 is now the most adaptive and dynamic operating system capable of scaling to any display size.
