How inFlowInventory started their logo design journey

Background information

Who are you known as?

Archon Systems Inc.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Today, Microsoft announced their new logo for Windows 8 on their blog:
http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/…-logo.aspx

The new design was met with controversy (and a lively discussion in our office) with some people loving it and others, well, not so much. At our company, design is near and dear to our hearts.

We thought to ourselves, why not give people the chance to step up to the plate and do something better. Crowdsourcing for the win!

So, just for fun, we want you to redesign the Windows 8 logo. This is a guaranteed contest (somebody will get paid!)

All we ask is that you include a brief description of the reasoning and thinking behind your design and why you think it’s better than Microsoft’s.
Just to be perfectly clear, this is for fun! We do not represent Microsoft, nor are we officially affiliated with them in any way shape or form. Winning this contest does not mean they will use your logo (although you will be featured on our blog, which is almost as awesome!)

Our company, Archon Systems Inc. (http://www.archonsystems.com) designs software to help small business. We are obsessive about design; from gut-level beauty to the tiniest details of how the software should work. This philosophy has helped our software, inFlow Inventory (http://www.inflowinventory.com), grow to over 300 000 users.

So, let’s have some fun! Let’s show Microsoft the 99designs community can do better!
