Meaning and history

Visual Studio Logo history

The iconic Visual Studio “infinity” logo was designed in 1997 and has undergone a few modifications throughout the years.

1997 — 2010

The first version of the Visual Studio logo was an infinity sign with a bold “X” in its center. The emblem featured orange and yellow as the main colors and green and blue as the additional ones. It was a bright and recognizable logo, which stayed with the brand for 13 years.

2010 — 2012

In 2010 the company decided to modify its visual identity and made the emblem smoother, also turning it a little. The color palette was changed to gradient blue and purple, which added a classy feeling to the logo.

2012 — 2019
