The second oldest logo functionally still has the most legible contrast in icon sizes,
also making logo as part of the Firefox brand the most recognizable.

5 'professional' redesigns in time span of 15 years have not been able to match it.

Graphic Design is a spook.

mozilla has abandoned their original userbase (tech-literate experts) to try and get mass appeal
all this has caused is for them to lose touch with their original userbase, and now they're practically dead

2013 is bad because the color of the water and the landmass blend too much
>>
>>402433

Why did they change it in 2005, 2009, 2013, and 2017? I'm not like a mad autist, I just literally don't understand the point. They all look so much like 2004 that you might as well save the money. I don't like 2019 a lot but at least it has some significant difference aside from "more gloss" and "less gloss"

it's starting to resemble a fox less and less throughout the years, so here is my prediction for 2021's logo.

because 2004 is really busy and works better as a 1200x1200 pixel illustration than a small icon

What's hilarious is that logos with swooshes are the most trite thing around. They're ditching everything and just making the entire logo yet another swoosh. I miss the 2004 logo. It was the best.

This is why I hate minimalism or whatever style this is. They get rid of everything unique and fun for a bunch of lines that don’t even represent anything. Literally soulless

2004 is just the fire, the fox, and the world wide web. It's not busy, it's complete; a logo that encompasses all there is to it using simple imagery. The new one is abstract bullshit.

2004's was honestly ahead of its time. looks as "modern" as 2013s

2013 is the best in my opinion. The muted landmass colors makes it less "busy", which I'm sure is a concern for some people, but it hasn't been reduced to the over minimalistic garbage of 2019.

Trends are changing, keep that in mind. Logos and brands are entering the "flat" phase with Subway and Burger King revamping their design with less saturated colours and no 3d elements. Firefox 2004 design is nice but too detailed for a logo especially for an icon.
>>
>>402433


Does anyone else find it weird that as screens have gotten higher and higher resolution, graphic design and images keep getting flatter, less detailed and lower resolution?
>>
>>402433
i think it goes well with the current os
>>
>>402433
i think the 2017 one is the best desu, it's deconstructed enough to look current, but it still keeps its identity. the 2019 one just looks bland and generic
>>
>>405219
that's true, but screens have also gotten smaller as people have started to spend more time on their phones than actual computers.

it's more about money being repetatively thrown at pointless and even anticonsumer shit. in eastern europe 10K american rubles can buy 2-3 months of programming or about 3-5 months of UI design work, but that probably went bankrolling faggots and redrawing logo svg.
mozilla representatives are now paid to blog about how upset they are that nazis use p2p shit that cannot be censored, and for 'planning and organizing' (making infographics) of how in long term to sniff them out from FOSS development and other technocorporate places.

Not everything will stay like it was in your childhood anons, and logos will go first.

the new logo is way better.
when you put the firefox logo in your taskbar its absolutely tiny and all detail is lost unless you have a 4k monitor, which most people don't.
simple flat logos look way better at this size and are much more readable.

The firefox logo has never been great anyway. I always used my own custom icon for it because i hate how busy looking it is, and it didn't sit nicely with any of my other desktop icons.
