It’s been a long time coming.
After 25 years (1987), Microsoft® Unveils a New Look and updates their namesake design.
Just for fun, check out the Microsoft logo history, and the image below that for Windows® (read about what went into Redesigning the Windows Logo straight from Microsoft’s blog, and for a visual history of the Windows® OS, see the Evolution Of Microsoft Windows: 1985 – 2009).
Brand Strategy is always of personal interest to any company, website, or project design. It is often of interest to customers, too. Don’t be afraid to revisit your logo/brand. Design is an ever-changing market. Tweak it until it’s right and then plan on tweaking it again. Before 25 years passes.
