The Mozilla Firefox logo is one of the more recognizable logos around the world, at least to those of us who have been fortunate enough to use a computer. Been around as long as the browser itself, the logo only went through subtle changes since the browser was first released back in 2002.
Mozilla has now revealed what would be the third redesign of the famous logo. One look at the new logo and it’s clear that the designers have gone for a flatter look, as is the current trend in design. Most notably, the high gloss from the globe has been reduced considerably in favor of subtle gradient. The fox also loses the pronounced streaks on the back for a less detailed deep orange surface.
There are some other minor changes as well, such as a cleaner tail section for the fox, reflection of the light on the fox’s nose, redesigning of the continents on the globe and for once, a proper shoulder for the arm so it doesn’t look like it’s jutting out from the chest.
The new logo remains as recognizable as the previous one but the redesign breathes new life into it and makes it more relevant in modern times.
