It looks like Microsoft are working on rebrandings of multiple services under their wings, which includes Bing, Skype, Yammer and Xbox. Speaking at Design Day 2013, Wolff Olins creative director Todd Simmons and Windows Phone design studio manager Albert Shum talked about the challenges involved when rebranding a company like Microsoft.

Simmons said: "We're still trying to figure out how to put a consumer face on this brand, as an ecosystem". The discussion turned to the creation of the Windows 8 logo, but also talked about revamping other MS brands, where Simmons added: "Other brands are coming along too. Bing, Skype, Yammer, Xbox -- everything is under development".

 

Considering the next-generation Xbox is only months away, not would be the perfect time to unveil a complete new look for multiple of Microsoft's services.
