All familiar and used to Microsoft’s flag-like logo that consists of four squares in different colors? Things are about to get changed here because Microsoft just announced a brand new logo for its company, after 25 whole years. In conjunction to a suite of new products like Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and such, Microsoft thought that it is a perfect time for a change for a common look and feel across the new products, providing a familiar and seamless experience on your PC, phone, tablet and even TV.
The symbol on the logo logo still consists of the four squares and four colors of course, but instead of a flag, it’s just a plain big square made out of the 4 little ones put together in the same sequence. Next to the symbol is the logotype that reads “Microsoft” written using Segoe font, the same font used in their products as well as for the company’s marketing communications. Check out the video below about the new look and how it brings all the new products together.
I can’t help but feel a little disappointed at the new squarish look that is pretty flat if you ask me, but hey, I guess square’s what Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Xbox and even the new version of Office is all about. What do you think of Microsoft’s new logo?
