These Iconic Logos Did Not Look Like This Before

The Microsoft logo went through many years of evolution

Today, we might see the four-panel, four-color square everywhere. And for Windows users, they have probably heard the boot-up chime quite often. That is how Bill Gates’ trillion-dollar company’s logo has always been. But wait, that is actually not true. Whenever a new version of Windows is released, Microsoft alters the logo.

The original logo from 1990 was much more colorful and was changed as early as the second edition. Designer Jason Wells’ latest Microsoft logo redesign is a wonderful display of what Microsoft stands for in one simple yet strong and descriptive emblem. The logo is now fairly basic; however, it was influenced by the earlier iteration and given a modern makeover.
