One thing I would never expect to see is Microsoft loosing their multi-coloured logo for a more minimalistic and iconic design, but by all means don’t get me wrong, if this Windows 8 new logo design turn out to be the real thing I’ll take my hat off to Microsoft. Regarding branding, it’s certainly the right move.
I’ve stumbled on this image created by Guillaume Baret that show how some of the most famous logos we know have came to be just by combined other logos. The image includes logos of Google Chrome, Twitter and Wikipedia among others. Obviously that’s not true, but still a funny thing to think about. Via @MarkTallant.
