Mozilla new logo contest

Postby v1nce » Tue Aug 23, 2016 4:17 am

Mozilla is looking for a new logo and the sketches looks terribl(y bad) to me.

I agree... Some of those are really weird. Sauron's Eye?!? The overly complex ethno style? The cassette player logo? A boring, overcomplex wireframe? The impossible M with too many dots? The cardboard evolution?

The one with the :// is my favourite. Simple, with a connection to the purpose of the thing, and with some real recognition value.

Edit: Only now read the comments... Seems other people see the same as I do.

Hello

I agree with all of you so far.

The "less ugly" is the Protocol idea, but it's because I find it is the simplest, the type font seems very "straight", "vertical", "strict" . The Eye idea kind of simple too,... but I think I don't like the colors. The others, are very ingenious but overcomplicated as Moini mentions.

But perhaps my opinion is influenced by mi little knowledge of graphic design.

I wonder which will be the opinion of other kind of users, school boys or girls, from other professions, etc.

The connector... it's in 3rd place to me

Mozilla's logo development has entered the "refinement phase," whereby bland designs are made blander, and trendier designs get more squiggles.
