After 25 years Microsoft has actually changed it’s logo. It makes sense to use the new flat surface to go along with their new ‘metro’ look. I kind of like, I kind of don’t. I prefer the new Windows logo to this, to me the colours aren’t right. They’re a bit too washed out, they need to be bolder and more in your face. I like Microsofts new design language, especially their flat surface interface. The ‘metro’ interfaces flexibility fits well across all screens from phone to TV and tablet/computer in between.
I wonder how much they paid for this logo? I hear some logos cost 100s of millions like the BP logo.
