Microsoft has officially confirmed its new Windows logo for Windows 8 OS. The new logo will be used across the upcoming Windows operating system.

Microsoft’s Sam Moreau said:

“We wanted the new logo to be both modern and classic,”

The new logo bares company’s internal Metro design. It is a combination of both modern and classic by echoing the International Typographic Style (or Swiss design) that has been a great influence on its Metro style design philosophy. The logo uses flat colors and is simple to convey the message of Metro inside Windows 8.
