Mozilla redesigns the Firefox logo, with some help from the rest of us.
This time, however, the plan is not just to create a new flagship browser icon, but to design a whole range of icons to fit the brand's various ventures – from mobile and VR browsers to screenshot and file sharing tools. Mozilla has already uploaded some possible recordings, and wants users to comment on their blog for feedback on how the icons will look.
"As an icon, the fast fox with a flaming tail does not offer enough design tools to represent this whole family of products, Mozilla designers wrote in a blog post. This means that you look past the closing of the logo or make the torn slimmer: Mozilla starts from square one with many aspects of this Firefox redesign.
The company shared two "design system approaches" to get feedback from its users. Both options offer a "master brand" icon ̵
"Each icon will review more E rounds of sophistication, or can be changed completely, between now and their respective product launches, "the company said. "Our focus on this point is on the system."
It's not the first design change that the Mozilla platform has recently reviewed either. Back in December, it launched a brighter, brighter and simplified Firefox Quantum icon that was "less about fur and more about a being," wrote the company in a blog post. Not only that – but all of this Firefox change is quite similar to the process that Mozilla used when it was transformed its own logo two years ago.
Mozilla does not ask users to send their own ideas to design, and it does not seem to put these designs into a voice. It's just looking for feedback on design ideas they stand, with the proviso that "these design systems are still a fiction work" and that "the icons are not final".
