Skype is the most popular and widely used online communication service in the world. Developed by a group of Estonian programmers, it was first released in August 2003. Skype gained immense popularity and became the first company to create a significant impact on the Internet phone market. When it was acquired by Microsoft in May 2011 for $8.5 billion in cash, it already had developed into a huge platform with more than 600 million users.
The bubbly Skype logo features the company’s name, in the Arial Rounded MT Bold typeface, positioned on a series of circles which collectively form a “cloud”.
The use of blue color in the Skype logo symbolizes communication, prosperity, excellence and the emotion of hope. The white color, on the other hand, stands for purity, peace and harmony.
