Microsoft unveils its new Logo

25 years have passed since the last change in Microsoft’s logo, and it is a good time for its change.

It has been quite a year for Microsoft; they have and are releasing new versions of nearly all their products. Office 2013, Xbox services, Windows phone 8 and the big release Windows 8. In all these new updates you can feel a similar feel, and similar experiences and it all comes from the implantation of the ‘Metro-style’ desktop seen in Windows 8. So what is Metro? It’s simple, easy and smart which has been used in the simple but elegant new logo for Microsoft.

“The symbol is important in a world of digital motion (as demonstrated in the video above.) The symbol’s squares of colour are intended to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products.” – Microsoft Blog
