Microsoft Corporate Logo Guidelines

As a general rule, third parties may not use the Microsoft logo. On this page are the limited circumstances under which third parties may use the Microsoft logo. The logo must always be used pursuant to the specifications on this page to identify Microsoft Corporation, or Microsoft products or services. Any use that falls outside of these specifications is strictly prohibited.

Third parties may only use the logo without a license under the following limited circumstances:

  • In advertising, marketing collateral, or a website that references your connection with Microsoft (e.g., the material states that you are an authorized distributor or reseller of Microsoft products) provided that the area in which the Microsoft logo is used includes the corporate logo of at least 1 other company with which you have a similar relationship.
  • In an area of a website, advertising, or marketing collateral exclusively dedicated to the sale of Microsoft products, and in such a manner that associates licensed Microsoft software with the Microsoft logo.

Do not use the Microsoft corporate logo in products, product packaging, or other business services for which a formal license is required.

Microsoft Logo FAQs

We have two versions of the full color logo. Choose the logo most appropriate for your application.

  • Use the positive version on light or white backgrounds. The full-color reverse logo may be used on dark color backgrounds, as well as dark areas within photographs.
  • In marketing, our logos don’t include the trademark symbol, except when they appear in consumer packaging.
  • The symbol may not be separated from the logotype.
  • A one color logo is only acceptable when media reproduction is limited. In these cases, the logo may be reversed to white on a background that provides suitable contrast. A black logo is allowed when media reproduction is black only.
  • For the full suite of high-res logo’s for both print (cmyk) and digital (rgb) use, please contact your Microsoft representative to obtain artwork files from Brand Central.

We respect the logo by giving it some space on all sides. The minimum clear space is equivalent to the height of the symbol.

The width of the logo must always be at least 72 pixels for on-screen or 1” (25.4 mm) for print, and the height of the logo must always be at least 15.5 pixels for on-screen or .22” (5.5 mm) for print.

  • The logo may not be displayed as a primary or prominent feature on any non-Microsoft materials. Companies using the logo pursuant to these guidelines must also display in the primary and more prominent position, their own logo(s), business name, product names, or other branding.
  • The logo may not be imitated or used as a design feature in any manner.
  • The logo may not be used in a manner that would disparage Microsoft or its products or services.
  • Neither the logo nor the Microsoft name may be used in any other company name, product name, service name, domain name, website title, publication title, or the like.
  • Non-Microsoft materials should not mimic any Microsoft advertising, product packaging, or website design.
  • The logo must be used as provided by Microsoft with no changes, including but not limited to changes in the color, proportion, or design, or removal of any words or artwork. The logo may not be animated, morphed, or otherwise distorted in perspective or appearance.

  • The logo must appear only in a horizontal position.
  • The logo must stand alone and may not be combined with any other object, including but not limited to other logos, words, graphics, photos, slogans, numbers, design features, or symbols. The logo must never be used to represent the word «Microsoft» in text, including in a headline, product-name logotype, or body copy.
  • The logo must not be incorporated or used in any manner as part of, or in close proximity to another company’s name, domain name, product or service name, logo, trade dress, design, slogan, or other trademarks. The logo must never appear with any other symbol or icon, be contained within a box, circle, or other shape, or be combined with any other name, logo, or icon to create a co-branded logo.

Microsoft reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate or modify permission to display the logo, and may request that third parties modify or delete any use of the logo that, in Microsoft’s sole judgment, does not comply with these guidelines or might otherwise impair Microsoft’s rights in the logo. Microsoft further reserves the right to object to unfair uses or misuses of its trademarks or other violations of applicable law.

Microsoft Logo

Microsoft has had five versions of its logo so far. The first one was introduced in 1975, while the current emblem was created in 2012.

Meaning and history


In 1987 Scott Baker designed a new logo. The wordmark used Helvetica italic typeface with a distinctive slash between the “o” and “s” characters. According to the company, this feature was supposed to put an emphasis on the word “soft” and also to create the impression of motion and speed. This version of the emblem was nicknamed the “Pac-Man” logo, as the slash bore resemblance to Pac-Man.

2012 emblem

The current version of the Microsoft logo was introduced at the end of summer 2012. According to the company representative, the new design reflected Microsoft’s shift from more classic interface to the tile-centric modern one. The wordmark featuring a new font was accompanied by an emblem consisting of four squares. Each square was supposed to represent one of the company’s main products (Windows, Xbox, Bing, and Office).

Office logo

The first Microsoft Office logo was introduced in 1995. In addition to the wordmark, it featured a square shape with assembled puzzle pieces inside (four colors: yellow, red, green, and blue). It did not change much for the 1997 and 2000 Office versions.
In 2001, when the XP version was introduced, a gradient tool was applied to the logo. The four color puzzle was moved to the left, so that it appeared in front of the wordmark.
In 2003, instead of the puzzle pieces logo a new one appeared. It featured four interconnected squares of different colors and sizes. The 2007 and 2010 Office versions used variations of this symbol, while the 2012 emblem was completely different. It sported an abstract orange shape, which was supposed to reflect the company’s new design language.

Excel logo

Originally, the Microsoft Excel logo featured the letter “X” that had the “L” on one of its sides. So, the emblem could be read as “XL,” or, Excel. Although the logo went through about eight modifications from 1985 to 2013, each of the versions used the same visual effect. However, in the 2013 variation, the company switched to a simple “X” without any details.

Outlook logo

Most old versions of the Microsoft Outlook logo, except the one released in 1995, featured a gold color palette. For the 2013 variation, however, a completely new color scheme was devised. It features the dark shade of blue for the emblem and a white background. Alternatively, the emblem can be white on the blue background.

Word logo

The original Microsoft Word logo, which was introduced in 1983, was just a wordmark with a recognizable “O” character. Four years later, a new emblem was adopted. This was the first time when the “W” character became the central part of the logo. It was placed over the background depicting a sheet of paper. The logos that appeared over the following 13 years were variations of the same idea.
In 2000, a completely new emblem was introduced, depicting the “W” character inside a square shape. It was then that the iconic white-and-blue color scheme was adopted. The logo was modified several times, until in 2013 the company developed an emblem resembling an opened book with the letter “W” on its cover.

Azure logo

When in 2010 Microsoft introduced its Azure cloud computing service, it appeared with the company’s iconic four-part “flag” logo. The choice of color reflected the name of the platform. In two years a new emblem was developed, consisting of four trapezoids. Two more years later, the company removed the symbol, leaving just a wordmark logo.

In 2015, the Microsoft logo was refreshed, using the Segoe font instead of Helvetica Bold Italic. According to design experts, this choice reflects the company’s visual identity as well as the style of typography that is used in their operating systems.


There are six colors in the logo. In addition to the wordmark itself, which is grey, there is the emblem consisting of blue, yellow, green, and red. All these are given on the white background.


История логотипа Microsoft

К каждому «лого» Microsoft подходила ответственно. Давайте узнаем о каждом логотипе побольше.

1975-1979 — «Джиги-Джиги, Ача-Ача»

Не знаю почему, но первая ассоциация с логотипом была песня из какого-то знакомого мне Индийского фильма. Видимо и сотрудники под эту песню делали логотип.

Сам он похож на Диско-Style, ну середина 70-х годов, что сказать теперь. В это время штаб Microsoft’a был Альбукерке.

1980-1981 — «С Диско в Хардкор»

Кто у кого украл дизайн, не поймешь. Но логотип «МелкоМягким» быстро надоел.

1982-1986 — «Зеленый — успокаивает. »

Сотрудникам Microsoft’a уже надоело танцевать и петь под Хардкорную музыку. Они быстро придумали новый логотип.

Теперь Microsoft зеленый, в шрифте «Blibbet» и с необычной буквой «О».

И в это же время появились IBM-PC, на 16-рязрядной версии MS-DOS Microsoft.

1987-2012 — «Waka-Waka-Waka © PAC-MAN»

Этот логотип прожил целых 25 лет, а его создатель — Графический Дизайнер Скотт Бейкер [Skott Baker].

Сам логотип называется «PAC-MAN Logo» в связи с тем, что буква О похожа на героя популярной игры. Долго Microsoft дала жить этому логотипу.

У него были разные лозунги, вроде: «Куда вы хотите пойти сегодня?» или же «Ваши способности, наше вдохновение. » ну или последнее «Будь что будет дальше».

2013 — «Metro Modern»

Новый логотип, новая операционная система, новый дизайн. Microsoft старается стать более современной и успешной. Но почему плоские плитки? Что оно обозначает?

Потому что.
1. Логотип обозначает разновидность продуктов.
2. Логотип обозначает операционную систему Windows.
3. Логотип обозначает новый дизайн Metro — плоские плитки.

Но критики были недовольны дизайном. Приведу один пример из сайта CNET:

«Вы всегда замечаете изменение прически вашей возлюбленной. Но вы не только замечаете, но еще и комментируете: «Ты что-то сделала с волосами, да?».Реакция должна быть такой же, когда компания меняет свой логотип: «О, ты стал выглядеть моложе и более привлекательно!».

И все же, когда Microsoft представила новый логотип, меня не покидало ощущение, что компания направлялась в парикмахерскую, но потом передумала и просто причесалась.

Да, конечно, наконец-то отход от жирного курсива, который как будто наклонялся к тебе и говорил: «Ты купишь мой товар, нравится тебе это или нет».Да, новый логотип предполагает, что компания хочет показаться более гуманной, современной, приветливой. И это заметно.

Но мое впечатление – слишком, слишком холодно для дизайна, который стал первым за 25 лет.

Для того, чтобы подтвердить или опровергнуть свои слова, я связался с одной женщиной. Она не имеет никакого отношения к Apple или Microsoft. Но она дизайнер, который лучше понимает чувства логотипа.

И вот её слова:
«К сожалению, этот логотип скучный. Но это связано с тем, что бренд позволял себе «скучать» так долго. Возникает такое ощущение, что они хотят отразить, что все силы собраны воедино. И пытаются выглядеть, будто это не трудно делать – изменить логотип впервые за 25 лет. Я знаю, что данные принципы они взяли из своих продуктов, но, давайте, встряхнитесь, вы же не Apple, не так ли?».

Не знаю как вы, но я соглашусь с этим комментарием.

Microsoft — действительно, создает очень хорошие продукты, пусть также продолжает 🙂

new microsoft logo

new microsoft logo by microsoft

today microsoft unveiled a new logo at the opening of its new store in boston.

the new design replaces the well known bold italic logotype and wavy-window that was implemented in 1987 and sees the brand move in a much more streamlined direction with a no frills 4-square icon made up of red, green, blue and gold squares and ‘Microsoft’ set in the typeface segoe.

— following text from microsoft’s blog

‘it’s been 25 years since we’ve updated the microsoft logo and now is the perfect time for a change. this is an incredibly exciting year for microsoft as we prepare to release new versions of nearly all of our products. from windows 8 to windows phone 8 to Xbox services to the next version of office, you will see a common look and feel across these products providing a familiar and seamless experience on pcs, phones, tablets and tvs. this wave of new releases is not only a reimagining of our most popular products, but also represents a new era for microsoft, so our logo should evolve to visually accentuate this new beginning.’

‘the microsoft brand is about much more than logos or product names. we are lucky to play a role in the lives of more than a billion people every day. the ways people experience our products are our most important “brand impressions”. that’s why the new microsoft logo takes its inspiration from our product design principles while drawing upon the heritage of our brand values, fonts and colors.’

‘the logo has two components: the logotype and the symbol. for the logotype, we are using the segoe font which is the same font we use in our products as well as our marketing communications. the symbol is important in a world of digital motion (as demonstrated in the video). the symbol’s squares of color are intended to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products.’

‘starting today, you’ll see the new microsoft logo being used prominently. it will be used on microsoft.com – the 10th most visited website in the world. it is in three of our microsoft retail stores today (boston, seattle’s university village and bellevue, wash.) and will shine brightly in all our stores over the next few months. it will sign off all of our television ads globally. and it will support our products across various forms of marketing. fully implementing a change like this takes time, so there may be other instances where you will see the old logo being used for some time.’

‘we’re excited about the new logo, but more importantly about this new era in which we’re reimagining how our products can help people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential.’
