Microsoft hasn’t had a logo refresh in 25 years and now they have revealed a new logo which we are kind of confused with. Not to say that it is horrible, but it doesn’t scream anything except “boring.” I’m not a creative type, so please come to your own conclusion.
Microsoft explains the change:
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. From Windows 8 to Windows Phone 8 to Xbox services to the next version of Office, you will see a common look and feel across these products providing a familiar and seamless experience on PCs, phones, tablets and TVs. This wave of new releases is not only a reimagining of our most popular products, but also represents a new era for Microsoft, so our logo should evolve to visually accentuate this new beginning.
