Hey readers, it is Throwback Thursday. Time to look back and see what’s changed in internet marketing.
Today’s focus – Mozilla Firefox Logo Evolution.
Remember what browser you were using way back in 2002?
Remember this “flaming duck” logo? A so called Phoenix that for some may even invoke the sounds of a dial-up modem?
If you thought, “Hey that looks like an old school Firefox logo”, then you would be correct.
Originally a phoenix with wings outspread to match the program’s original name: Phoenix.
For legal reasons, the name was changed to Firefox and the logo redrawn as a fiery fox wrapped around a globe.
The logo was revised and updated later, fixing some flaws.
The shape of the tail was modernized by giving it a 3D look i.e.
- wrapping tails behind the globe
- updating the texture used for the Firefox and the globe
- slightly reducing the overall level of visual complexity in the icon
So, what do you think of the Mozilla Firefox Logo Evolution? Did they made the right choice?
