Firefox is around here for more than a decade and kept evolving all those years for its users. However, if there is one thing that remained same since its origin is the Firefox logo. The symbol is more than a logo, its the brand representation that comes first in our mind when we hear the word Firefox. But, now the company has decided to rebrand the logo and pin something new that matches with the contemporary style. Firefox is carrying out a survey for its community to known what kind of new logo they prefer.
In the latest blog post, Firefox shared a few new designed logos for the web browsers and asked the people for their opinion. The web browser was announced back in 2012 and ever since the company has used the same logo. Besides, the company is also working on a few new web browsers apart from its regular one. The side projects of Firefox includes the FireFox Rocket, the web browser for connections with limited bandwidth. The another is Firefox Reality, and this web browser is dedicated to the Virtual Reality.
In the blog post, the company has shared a few potential logos that are currently under the work. All the users were asked to share their thought about these Firefox logos. However, the company said that these designs are at the initial stage, so there is no certainty about the final one yet.
The shared designs include two system logos, and both have sub-logos for each product under the web browser. Firefox asked the community for feedback on these logos by saying “Living by our open-source values of transparency and participation, we’re reaching out to our community to learn what people think. You can make your views known by commenting on this blog post below”. The bigger icon represents the ‘Masterbrand’ logo in each system that will appear in the branding. I would go for the System 2 as it seems to be more attractive. However, it still looks Firefox without ‘Fox.’ According to me, the current logo is the best one as it carries a lot of memories and have great design.
You can also share your thoughts on these early stage prototype design via commenting on the blog. Firefox also mentioned that the rebranding will take place later this year, that means we will be seeing the older Firefox logo for a few more months.
