Windows 8 Logo

Microsoft decides to change their Windows logo in more like a window like not a flag, so the first product to use it is the Windows 8 OS.
This is their statement from their blog about the logo changes

Windows 8

With Windows 8, we approached the logo redesign with a few key goals on mind.

  1. We wanted the new logo to be both modern and classic by echoing the International Typographic Style (or Swiss design) that has been a great influence on our Metro style design philosophy. Using bold flat colors and clean lines and shapes, the new logo has the characteristics of way-finding design systems seen in airports and subways.
  2. It was important that the new logo carries our Metro principle of being “Authentically Digital”. By that, we mean it does not try to emulate faux-industrial design characteristics such as materiality (glass, wood, plastic, etc.). It has motion – aligning with the fast and fluid style you’ll find throughout Windows 8.
  3. Our final goal was for the new logo to be humble, yet confident. Welcoming you in with a slight tilt in perspective and when you change your color, the logo changes to reflect you. It is a “Personal” Computer after all.

We hope you enjoy our new logo.
