Microsoft Azure Logo 2014
The old logo didn’t contain the emblem. There was only the name of the brand in a bright and light shade of blue – it looked lighter than the current one. The type was the same, though.

2017 — Today

Microsoft Azure Logo

Named after the shade of the blue color, Microsoft Azure’s visual identity is fully based on that sky-blue.

The Microsoft Azure logo is composed of a traditional wordmark and an emblem on its left. The inscription is executed in Microsoft’s signature typeface, which is Segoe.

The “Microsoft” part features thinner lines than the “Azure” one, which puts an emphasis on the software, not its developer.

The Azure emblem is a geometrical figure, composed of one big triangle with a white triangular cut part on its left, and a quadrangle with its pointed upper right peak.

The Microsoft Azure logo is instantly recognizable as a Microsoft brand, as it shares the same principles of the visual identity as all the other products of the legendary company. It is clear, neat and strong.

The bright blue color with white accents is a reflection of professionalism and reliability, as well as loyalty and transparency of the company.
