Earlier last week, Microsoft made a brave decision to change the Windows 8 logo. From Justin’s weekly report:
The Windows flag is one of most popular logos of all time. With each version of Windows, the logo went through a slight rebranding, but nothing significant enough to make sure people can identify it instantly. Last week, as a part of the continued effort to make the Metro design more uniform and pervasive, Microsoft unvieled the brand new logo.
Instead of a flag, we now have a real window, designed at an interesting perspective. Not only the logo, but the typography and colors have changed as well. In the place of a riot of colors, we now have only one, blue. The new look is trendy, cool, but needs a lot of getting used to for the masses.
Today, I’d like to ask you how you’re feeling about the new logo. Excited? Angry? Bored? Personally, put me down as cautiously optimistic!
So vote away and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!
