The Mozilla logo, which has been under seven months of public scrutiny, has finally been revealed.
London studio Johnson Banks recently revealed the much awaited logo for Mozilla, the software company best known for developing the Firefox browser. The logo redesign process began in June 2016 and took seven months before it could be officially launched into the market.
Johnson Banks, prompted by Mozilla which prides itself on its open source approach, carried out redesign project by setting up a blog and inviting feedback as well as idea sharing. Featuring the company’s name, the final logo design is seen spelled out in a font which closely resembles “Courier” with the letters “I” and “L” represented by a colon and two forward slashes with the final look closely resembling one of November’s final four concept design Protocol.
“Our logo, with its nod to URL, language reinforces that the internet is at the heart of Mozilla,” said the company’s creative director Tim Murray.
“We are committed to the original intent of the link as the beginning of an unfiltered, unmediated experience into the rich content of the internet.”
However, Mozilla is planning to invite designers to contribute to a gallery of images used by the brand to continue developing the visual identity.
“We intend to invite artists, designers, and technologists to contribute to an imagery collective, and we’ll code curated GIFs, animations and still images to flow into mozilla.org and other digital experiences,” said Murray. “Through this open design approach, we will engage new design contributors and communities, and make more imagery available to all under Creative Commons. We’re looking for input from creative communities to help shape and expand this idea.”
