Earlier this week I was down in Ft. Lauderdale presenting at a conference and one of the Partners that I have known for some time came up to me and asked me, “So what’s up with the color band?” What he was referring to was the spectrum ribbon that he saw at the bottom of my email signature. Many of you have probably seen this starting to show up in several places including Microsoft email signatures, our Small Business Solutions brochure, etc. such as these:
(You’ll actually see it on a BIG item soon). What this spectrum ribbon is is part of the Microsoft Small Business nameplate and branding. When you see the spectrum ribbon, that is an item created by and for the Microsoft Small Business Segment Team. This means that for all of you focused on Small Business, you’ll know exactly which team that came from when you see it used and it will always be accompanied by the “Microsoft Small Business” name as well.
So now you know the answer to, “What’s up with the color band?” and where it came from.
Thank you and have a wonderful day,

Hey those are the Dynamics CRM colors! Perhaps a tiny, tiny, tiny hope for better synergy for Dynamics CRM in the SMB space!
If you use that logo as your wallpaper and tile it that ribbon makes an interesting neverending left to right ribbon, tube, pipe, twist, ...thingy
Roy G Biv would be proud.
