I guess the guys at Microsoft realized it’s about time for a redesign.
Microsoft has finally unveiled a new logo for the first time since the 1980s, the last time the company changed its branding was in 1987. The company’s new logo now boasts a not so complete redesign but rather an update to their old logo, and still holding true to the traditional Windows branding.
In the new logo, the Microsoft name uses a more smoother, modern font called the Segoe, and next to it is their Windows 8 logo/flag but now with four colored squares instead of the window-esque style flag. The new logo seems to be patterned from the look introduced in the new Windows 8 interface.
In the video below, it seems that the Blue Square represents Windows, the Red Square for Microsoft Office, the Green Square for the Xbox and the Yellow Square for…. Zune? lol (I really don’t know yet) maybe something new in the works.
Here’s an intro video from Microsoft about the their new logo.
