Microsoft's first logo redesign in the last 25 years is being mocked by a designer, who has applied the new logo's style to those of other companies.

The Redmond, Wash., company unveiled its new logo last week, but not everyone was a fan.

To ridicule the new logo, which numerous people have called boring, a Mexican designer took to Tumblr and posted images showing the Microsoft logo's design style applied to other companies' logos.

The tech companies included are Apple, Google, Twitter and Firefox. The designer, who goes by L8, also put the spin on logos for Pepsi, Starbucks and the 2012 Olympics.

In a caption below the pictures, the designer ridiculed the new Microsoft logo.

"You can tell someone lost their Photoshop license and chose to use [Microsoft] Paint to redesign the logo instead," L8 said in Spanish.
