Microsoft has been through a lot this year, preparing for all the big changes it has announced. They are releasing new versions to nearly all their products including Office 2013, Xbox services, Windows phone 8 and of course Windows 8. In all these new updates you can feel a similar feel, and similar experiences and it all comes from the implantation of the ‘Microsoft-Modern’ style seen in Windows 8. So what is it? It’s simple, easy and smart which has been used in the simple but elegant new logo for Microsoft.
It has been 25 years since the last change Microsoft made to it's logo, and it comes with changes to all its subsidiaries as the video will show.
“The symbol is important in a world of digital motion (as demonstrated in the video above.) The symbol’s squares of colour are intended to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products.” – Microsoft Blog
