This is the Microsoft Store Logo

Apple branding the Apple Stores is easy. After all, the Apple logo is just an apple. While the Microsoft store could carry the old and familiar Microsoft typeface logo, which logo would it bear? Would it be the Windows symbol (which changes slightly with each generation) or would it be Clippy? Turns out it's something new.

IStartedSomething found the new Microsoft Store logo in a trademark filing that would cover "retail store services and online retail services featuring computers, computer hardware, software, computer games, computer peripherals, portable music players and accessories, personal digital assistants, cell phones and accessories, video game consoles and accessories, webcams, books, clothing, back packs, messenger bags, computer bags and novelty items."


There it is. What do you make of it?

    That looks horrible and doesn't suit the company's newfound creativity and simplicity. All they need are the furthest 4 squares, the others are unnecessary.

    I think it's absolutely hideous. It looks out-dated already, like its from the 80's. They should just stick with the Microsoft type-face, it's classy and simple and has the brand recognition. They should stick with black and white, and to differentiate from apple they should use the blue and green hues from the default vista wallpaper.
