Microsoft’s old logos remind us why we love graphic design

Tech giants don't tend to play around with their logos too much. Apple's, for example, has been the same shape since 1977 (albeit in various different colours). But one brand that has chopped and changed its design lots over the years is Microsoft – and the company has been celebrating its old logos this month.

Founded on 4 April 1975, Microsoft entered the world with a rather funky, seemingly disco-inspired logo. And this month, the company has shared an updated version of it, incorporating Windows' famous four-colour scheme. (Looking for logo inspiration? Check out our best logos of all time.)
