This week Mozilla unveiled a big change to their brand design as the organisation looks into the future.
With these changes, the new Mozilla logo has been designed to show Mozilla’s commitment to the web, now reading as ‘moz://a’ it is an especially clever way of doing that, keeping it recognisable while nodding to the URL language.
Mozilla explained it with the following statement:
“Our logo with its nod to URL language reinforces that the Internet is at the heart of Mozilla. We are committed to the original intent of the link as the beginning of an unfiltered, unmediated experience into the rich content of the Internet.”
They also released the following video to show off the new brand identity.
On top of the new logo, Mozilla also created a new font type called “Zilla”, which is now available to download for free under an open source license and was designed by Typotheque, who were the first foundry to release web-based fonts.
All of this comes as the web becomes a more important part of our lives and as Mozilla releases more products in a range of categories, outside of just Firefox.
We think the logo is a pretty good change, let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
