History of Tech Company Logos

Neatorama has a look at the evolution of various tech company logos over the years, including Microsoft, Apple and Nokia. I’m shocked at the hyper-detailed awful logos Apple and some others started with, especially how different it is from Apple’s normal minimalism.

By the by, I’ve started posting updates to both my blogs to Twitter, as well as using Twitter finally as a quick communications medium. I was adverse to using Twitter, until I saw how easy it was to post to it and read Tweets in Outlook with OutTwit. If you’d like to get updates and communicate with my on Twitter, go ahead and start following me.

  1. Microsoft’s logo really look stale all the time. You notice they don’t ever but that logo on practically ANY of their consumer products. At least not visibly.

    But instead, you get separate sub-brand names and logos in Microsoft : like Windows, Xbox, Zune, Office, Windows Live, MSN, etc. Kind of silly. I love how Apple manages to keep it all consistent with the shiny Apple logo. Even though I don’t like Apple that much, at least they kept it simple with a nice-looking unique trademark you could always identify as Apple.

    Do you think Microsoft could use a new logo?
