New Microsoft Logo Adds Colors
Microsoft has updated its logo for the first time in 25 years. A blog post from the company reads: “It’s been 25 years since we’ve updated the Microsoft logo and now is the perfect time for a change. This is an incredibly exciting year for Microsoft as we prepare to release new versions of nearly all of our products.”
The new logo spells the company’s name in a soft grey font rather than the old angular, black one – and most noticeably, adds four colored squares to the left (adapted from the similar Windows logo).
I realize that only design geeks will really care about this change – and that most of them are probably Apple users… but you might be interested to know that Microsoft says that the logo change will usher in a period of new products and updates. The company added, “Fully implementing a change like this takes time, so there may be other instances where you will see the old logo being used for some time.”
The new Microsoft logo is quite a bit different from Microsoft’s groovy, trippy original logo from the 1970s…
