API ICON SYSTEM
Each API service is branded with a unique icon, and appears throughout Microsoft AI tools, websites and apps. I found the original icons to be visually inconsistent as a family, and more importantly, many did not categorically communicate.
I took the initiative and proposed a refinement of the entire Cognitive Services API icon family. Every icon was crafted to be consistent in weight—and in many instances, replaced with an upgrade.
These icons appeared prominently across Microsoft Azure, and thus required the blessing from the Azure stakeholders, and they were.
