If you haven’t heard about it yet, I’d recommend you read the blog article on the new mozilla wordmark.
We should think about what this will mean for both our own wordmark (the mozilla.ch) and the positron [m^+].
I think there’s not much choice on the wordmark front. We can do what we’ve been doing and create one of the first TLDs in the moz:// protocol (so essentially [moz://a][.ch]) or go with a similar concept as the one exemplified for mozilla germany in the article. Or both, since there might be good reason to have a one-liner and a higher logo - like the video outlines for moz fest.
I want to note that especially in the moz://a.ch case eastereggs are to be had on the website. Either way we should opt for a more compact header in my opinion.
There currently aren’t too many guidelines yet on color usage, so it’s all a bit out there. But I’d be in favor of using the red from the logo with white text for our additional bit, at least if we don’t incorporate our national flag somehow.
The other question is what to do with our little logo/icon. Should we just replace the m to match the Zilla font? Or should we leave it as-is, or…
What do you think? Do you have a great idea of what we can do with the new brand to make it “ours”?
