Mozilla is asking for people’s input on Firefox’s future brand design system.
We’ll be using these criteria to evaluate the work:
- Do these two systems still feel like Firefox?
- How visually cohesive is each of them? Does each hold together?
- Can the design logic of these systems stretch to embrace new products in the future?
- Do these systems reinforce the speed, safety, reliability, wit, and innovation that Firefox stands for?
- Do these systems suggest our position as a tech company that puts people over profit?
Personally, I prefer the slightly less abstract look of System 1. System 2’s “icons for new apps and services” have too much negative space, making them have much less impact.
Saying that, as stated in the article, nothing’s final. I’m not a big fan of System 1’s adherence to only a single gradient of colours.
You can submit your opinion at the bottom of their blog post.
It would be nice to see this redesign influence Mozilla’s other products. Bring Thunderbird’s icons out from the early 2000s.
