Microsoft announced today that they will be changing their company logo. This is the first change of the Microsoft logo in 25 years.
This news comes just weeks after Microsoft announced that they would not change their logo.
Back on June 18th, Paul Thurrott noticed something different about Microsoft’s logo during announcement of the Surface tablet. He posted an article containing some photos, not only of the Surface tablet, but also what he claimed was the new Micosoft logo.
Back on August 2nd, some images of Microsoft’s packaging for upcoming accessories, such as the Wedge Touch Mouse and the Wedge Mobile Keyboard, were spotted with packaging including the Microsoft logo in Segoe type.
However, rumors of a logo change started to die down when Microsoft released this statement.
“This is not a new logo. Segoe is the font that we use in many of our product experiences and marketing materials. You will see the word Microsoft showing up from time to time in the Segoe typeface, which reflects the look and feel of the new experiences we are creating. We’ll also continue to use the traditional Microsoft logotype.”
Today’s events seem to contradict the earlier statement by Microsoft.
