Let’s admit it, Microsoft is gearing up for one hell of a year. The company has adopted a new design language, formerly known as Metro, through out its entire product line up. It is only apt that now this very design language is trickling down to the company’s official logo. This change comes 25 years after Microsoft had unveiled it previous logo. The new logo integrates a multi-color Windows logo as well, that also highlights the fact that Windows is the flagship product for Microsoft.
Clearly this is the biggest year in the history of Microsoft and we are seeing an unprecedented level of integration in its entire product line. All products including Windows, Windows Phone, Office, Outlook.com, Skydrive, Xbox and Windows Azure are in for a revamp and the adoption of the new ‘Metro’ like logo is seem like the final culmination of this integration.
