Meaning and history

OneDrive Logo history


The OneDrive visual identity was changed many times, as well as the product’s name. Since the creation of the emblem, in 2010, it was only slightly modified and modernized.

2007 — 2010

The very first OneDrive logo was a simple “Windows Live Folders” wordmark with a famous Windows waving the flag, executed in four colors.
The same year the logo was changed, as the program got a new name — SkyDrive. Now the “Windows Live SkyDrive” inscription was complimented by a device picture with the Windows flag above it.
In 2008 the emblem was replaced by a Windows flag from the original version. This logo stayed with the software for two years.

2010 — 2012

Logo OneDrive
In 2010 the cloud emblem was designed. Composed of two overlapping light blue clouds with a golden-yellow ribbon around one of them, the icon looked friendly and fresh. The logo was three-dimensional and looks really modern and friendly.
The version of 2010 contained a “Windows Live SkyDrive” lettering, which was changed to “Microsoft SkyDrive” in 2011.

2012 — 2014

OneDrive Emblem
In 2012 Microsoft simplified the SkyDrive logo design. Now it’s a flat image of two overlapping clouds and a laconic “SkyDrive” wordmark. All the elements are executed in a bright blue and placed on a white background.

2014 — 2019

In 2014 Microsoft had to change its product’s name to OneDrive, so the logo was also changed. But the color palette and style remained the same, only the nameplate was replaced.

2019 — Today

The redesign of 2019 brought a more modern and even more laconic OneDrive logo. Now it is composed of a single two-dimensional cloud, which is drawn in three different shades of blue, with the lighted at the base and the darkest at the top of it.
