This week at VMworld 2009, VMware is unveiling a new logo:
As you can see, there are minor changes to the font — well, if you are a graphic designer you probably don’t think the changes are minor — but the biggest difference is the removal of the “three boxes.”
The old logo is dead! Long live the new logo!
Not quite –from what I hear, the new logo will be phased in over time in a cost-effective way. I’m sure the shareholders appreciate that.
For comparison, here is what the old logo looked like:
What do you think of the new logo?

I liked the Boxes! 🙂 It’ll be interesting to see how the Windows Icons morph. They are all various representations of the boxes.
I don’t like it… the connection between the v and the m in vmware looks terrible compared to the previous logo.
Honestly, I don’t like it, but the logo itself is meaningless, the rock solid VMware products are what matters.

Aready adopted… even if I’m feeling a bit nostalgic too… -:)
I like the boxes too! What is the reasoning behind changing the VMware logo? Inquiring minds want to know…. 🙂
Thanks everyone for chiming in on the new logo. I know many old-timers will miss the boxes — we fear change. 🙂
The new logo will stand out better and make the VMware name more recognizable.
Eee… look the same 😉

I need your new logo in a vector-based format for a partner presentation we’re doing at SAP TechEd. Can someone e-mail it to me?
Brad, I’ve passed your info to an appropriate contact within VMware.
