    congraulations! one thing i don't understand: your design was great as it was, why did they have to change it? in the "iterated" version the photo is not alligned with the employee name, and the gap between the name and the logo is kinda weird. also, this employee in the illustration looks really bitter and tired :( I hope it's not gonna be the default for all MS employees who don't have a photo yet.

      My assumption for the changes:

      • Type size: changed for employee names to accomodate for longer names.
      • All caps sentence case: brand standards.
      • Content left aligned: could be part of their brand standards to have text left aligned when possible, or maybe there was too much symmetry.

        I think you're on the money with all these points. Haven't seen any Microsoft collateral lately that uses center-aligned text.
