Microsoft’s new logo looks simplistically gorgeous
Microsoft has just revealed the new look and feel of its logo, after 25 years since the first major Microsoft logo change in the company’s history. The new logo is concocted of colors present in the previous iterations of Windows logo along with beautiful typography. Microsoft’s Jeff Hansen told The Seattle Times that the new logo is designed to “signal the heritage but also signal the future — a newness and freshness.”
The company will be releasing an array of products this holiday season, which includes Windows Phone 8, Windows 8 and the Surface tablet.The new logo echoes the change in Microsoft’s branding, which has been provoked by the new Windows 8 branding and user interface. The office suite has also adopted the new immersive UI design and branding. The new logo is currently live on Microsoft’s website and three Microsoft retail stores today (Boston, Seattle’s University Village and Bellevue, Wash.) and will shine brightly in all their stores over the next few months. Hansen has said that full implementation will take some time, so you’d the old logo being used at some places.
