If you don’t know, the first Mozilla Firefox logo was actually a Phoenix. It wasn’t until 2003 that Mozilla found something better looking and more fitting. The logo depicted a fox with a fiery tail wrapped around a globe. The company subtly refined that look and in Firefox Quantum, they refined it even more. Now, Mozilla wants to completely change their iconic logo and they’re asking you for your help. There are two logos to choose from and you’ll have to go to Mozilla’s blog to cast your vote.
The System 1 Firefox logo is a departure from what we’ve seen since 2003. But it’s a simple and clean design that feels accessible and familiar. I can see people voting for this logo. It’s different yet recognizable and identifiable as Firefox.
The System 2 Firefox logo is similar to the existing design but is omitting the fox’s head in favor of highlighting the fiery tail. This version would likely cause the least confusion for users but is also a safer bet.
Although the products and projects are real, these design systems are still a work of fiction. Icons are not final. Each individual icon will undergo several rounds of refinement, or may change entirely, between now and their respective product launches. Our focus at this point is on the system.
As the company states, they will keep updating the Firefox Masterbrand Icon until perfect, or it may change completely. The same idea is being implemented for the system apps such as the Firefox Reality browser for VR. If you want to check out more of Mozilla’s logos, check out their blog page.
Frankly, I still prefer the usual looking Firefox logo. Maybe because I’m so used to seeing the same over the years, but what is your take on Mozilla changing their browser logo? Let us know in the comments below or on GooglePlus, Twitter, or Facebook.Source: Firefox
