Microsoft has Officially announced that the Windows 8 logo is redesigned to better reflect the Windows 8 Metro style design principles. The new upcoming Windows 8 is now complete reimagination of the Windows Operating system with an evolution of Windows logo.
“The Windows logo is a strong and widely recognized mark but when we stepped back and analyzed it, we realized an evolution of our logo would better reflect our Metro style design principles and we also felt there was an opportunity to reconnect with some of the powerful characteristics of previous incarnations.” said Sam Moreau, Principal Director of User Experience for Windows.
The new redesigned Windows logo is a Window not a flag. If we trace back the evolution of Windows Logo, Microsoft Logo designing team has bring back Windows Logo to its original meaning – reimaging the Windows Logo as just that, A Window.
How ITs Re-Designed
- Microsoft wanted the new logo to be both modern and classic by mixing International Typographic style using bold flat colors, clean lines and shapes based on Metro Style design philosophy.
- Microsoft wanted the new logo carries Metro principle of being “Authentically Digital”. It means 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.
- An last goal was for the new logo to be humble, 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.
