Lifting the lid on Home windows 11’s new look: ‘We regarded on the Microsoft emblem and turned it blue’


Microsoft is constructing as much as its Home windows 11 launch date on October 5, and it is revealed a number of the pondering behind the redesign of its working system.

Ensuring that when individuals take a look at it they’re like ‘yeah, I prefer it’ and ‘yeah, that is Home windows’.

And it is not fairly as complicated a course of as you may assume, at the very least in locations.

“We regarded on the Microsoft emblem and turned it blue,” one Microsoft worker says throughout its newest video (above) on the Home windows 11 rebrand.

The Home windows 11 emblem, you may recall, has are available in numerous types over time however for probably the most half it has been made up of 4 square-ish shapes. For its newest incarnation, it actually is simply 4 squares.

However 4 BLUE squares. And so they’re not italicised, both.

To not be confused with the 4 barely offset blue squares of the Home windows 10 emblem. 

The outdated emblem was blue, proper? Or am I shedding it?

Can I even be certain this video is not really satire of Apple adverts from a decade in the past? Is Microsoft that self conscious or is that this an earnest try to elucidate the rebrand? Would I even recognise an earnest try by an organization at this level or has advertising ruined my notion of what is actual and what’s not?

I am unable to even be certain if Vincent from the video is actual. A cursory look at LinkedIn suggests Vincent is not actual. Or at the very least is not simply searchable on LinkedIn.

The one reality I do know is that, sure, the Home windows 11 emblem is blue. Besides when it is not.
