(Relaxnews) – Twenty-five years after Microsoft revealed their first corporate logo, the software company has, on August 23, unveiled a new, more colorful design similar to that found on the company’s Windows products.

The new logo features a multi-colored symbol composed of four squares of blue, red, green and yellow, like the one found on Microsoft products, to the left of the word “Microsoft” with the “f” and the “t” connected.

Microsoft’s first major logo change in 25 years comes at a time when the company is pushing its Windows 8 software and just over a week before the start of consumer electronics fair IFA in Berlin, Germany, (August 31- September 5). Microsoft is expected to showcase its flagship Windows 8 tablet, the Microsoft Surface, at the event  as well as a host of Ultrabooks and full-size laptops running the new 0S.
