The Windows Logo Gets A Redesign

Microsoft Corporation has redesigned the Windows operating system logo to better reflect their Metro style design principles. Microsoft had a short list of agencies that they wanted to work with on the redesign of the logo and they worked directly with Pentagram on it. Pentagram is known for working with clients such as the Sundance Film Festival, TIME Magazine, Lands’ End, Grey Goose, and Guitar Hero.

To best summarize how they come up with this idea for the logo, Paula Scher of Pentagram simply said “your name is Windows. Why are you a flag?” The old Windows logo looks like a flag.

What do you think of the new Windows logo? Let us know in the comments.
