by Christine Mortensen on August 23, 2012

For the first time in 25 years Microsoft launches a redesign of its logo.

Looks pretty good if you ask me. I've written about this before but I still can't help but wonder if Microsoft is taking a design page from Google especially with their choice to use flat color and very geometric shapes.

It's been 25 years since we've updated the Microsoft logo and now is the perfect time for a change. This is an incredibly exciting year for Microsoft as we prepare to release new versions of nearly all of our products. From Windows 8 to Windows Phone 8 to Xbox services to the next version of Office, you will see a common look and feel across these products providing a familiar and seamless experience on PCs, phones, tablets and TVs. This wave of new releases is not only a reimagining of our most popular products, but also represents a new era for Microsoft, so our logo should evolve to visually accentuate this new beginning. source
