In a Report from SAN FRANCISCO Microsoft made an announcement on Friday that it was redesigning the logo of Windows software, making a primary change to the iconic four-color Windows logo users have been used to and want to see a change.
The new logo is a slightly-angled blue block with a thin white cross in the middle, which makes it look like a windows instead of the four-color curvy flag in the past.
Microsoft said in a blog post, “The Windows logo is a strong and widely recognized mark but when we stepped back and analyzed it, we realized a evolution of our logo would better reflect our Metro style design principles and we also felt there was an opportunity to reconnect with some of the powerful characteristics of previous incarnations”.
The company said, “We did less of a re-design and more to return it to its original meaning and bringing Windows back to its roots – remaining the Windows logo as just that – a windows”.
It is reported to be said that the new logo is designed by Paula Scher from the pentagram Design Agency, whose works include Citibank logo. The first Window logo debuted in November 1985. After that , the logo has gone through a number of redesigns, which were all based on the design of a four color curvy flag.
