Microsoft says that Metro is designed to be “sleek, quick, modern” and a “refresh” from the icon-based interfaces of Windows, Android and iOS. Metro is an internal code name for a typography-based design language created by Microsoft, originally for use in Windows Phone 7. Metro is based on the design principles of classic Swiss graphic design.
Engadget said, “Microsoft continues its push towards big, big typography here, providing a sophisticated, neatly designed layout that’s almost as functional as it is attractive.”CNET complimented the Metro design, saying, “it’s a bit more daring and informal than the tight, sterile icon grids and Rolodex menus of the iPhone and iPod Touch.
