How Microsoft Designed Its New Logo

Andrew Watson, a graphic artist and lover of fonts, hilariously created this graphic which points out “how” Microsoft created its brand spanking new logo: by using Apple’s go to font Myriad Pro and making a few tweaks. The font Microsoft uses is called Segoe but it’s more funny to make this connection:



  1. this is what happens when mac users design a logo for microsoft. :P had a pc user designed the logo, it wouldnt resemble apple's style.

  2. Where the s and t meet is actually called a ligature. Also Myriad Pro was not created by Apple, it was a typeface developed by Adobe which is also used in the current Rolls Royce (auto) logo, and the last three letters of Google's Gmail logo.

  3. Apple fans ... you suck !!
