Microsoft Azure Cloud and AI Symbol / Icon Set – SVG
I use these icons in images for BuildAzure.com, in addition to my user group / conference talk slides, and any other training content I develop. They really help enhance the professional look and feel of the content that I build, and increase the brand cohesiveness between the products I’m writing about and the Microsoft branding for them.
The download consists of a
.zip file that contains a collection of
.svg images for the various Microsoft Azure icons. You can import these images directly into Microsoft PowerPoint, or even open them in your browser and take screenshots of them from there. Microsoft has stated that they are planning to update the downloaded collection of icons over time.
