Microsoft and Design: The New Logo
Today Microsoft has launched a new Logo and it looks like this:
(hey, if you are going to any of the logos on this page, then be sure you know and follow the legal guidelines on using logos)
The text part (known to our marketeers as the “logotype”) uses a font called Segoe, which is the new Microsoft standard… you’ve seen it on Xbox, Windows Phone, Windows 8, the Microsoft website, etc, etc.
To celebrate the launch of the new corporate logo, I thought I would assemble here some of the latest and greatest Microsoft product logos that also follow this new design philosophy
Both Window 8 and Office 2012 use perspective in their new logos
Xbox has its classic silver and green logo, and a “new style” white on solid version
Windows Azure has the classic “glowing” blue (azure) and a newer solid version
Windows Phone moved to its red stage when 7.5 (Mango) came out. There also appears to be a white on solid version
Bing has had the same logo since its launch in 2009. Is it time for a change?
Finally, not a logo, but you may have seen these clouds in Microsoft literature.
There are plenty of other products and logos I did not cover here because they do not typify the new philosophy, so perhaps we are going to see updates in thee soon.
