Microsoft Logos

History of Microsofts logos

For some reason I seem to get a lot of people on the site for the keyword of ” Microsoft Logo”, so I thought I would investigate and put them all on here. Take a read below.

In 1987, Microsoft adopted its current logo, the so-called “Pac-Man Logo”, designed by Scott Baker. According to the March 1987 Computer Reseller News Magazine, “The new logo, in Helvetica italic typeface, has a slash between the o and s to emphasize the “soft” part of the name and convey motion and speed.” Dave Norris, a Microsoft

employee, ran an internal joke campaign to save the old logo, which was green, in all uppercase, and featured a fanciful letter O, nicknamed the blibbet, but it was discarded.

Microsoft’s logo with the “Your potential. Our passion.” tagline below the main corporate name, is based on the slogan Microsoft had as of 2008. In 2002, the company started using the logo in the United States and eventually started a TV campaign with the slogan, changed from the previous tagline of “Where do you want to go today?.”
