New Default Theme and Logo for Mozilla Sunbird

Tuesday August 3rd, 2004

Mozilla Sunbird, the standalone version of Mozilla Calendar, has a new default theme. Designed by Mark Carson and Chris Cook, the new theme is based on Winstripe, the new default theme for Mozilla Firefox. Mark Carson has made screenshots of the new theme (some mockups and works-in-progress) available. The new theme was chosen after a public design contest; the still ongoing topic in the MozillaZine Forums has more details.

A related effort to find an official logo and icon set for Sunbird is still underway. Three finalist logos have been selected and voting is now underway to choose a winner (only those who contributed feedback previously are eligible to vote). At the time of writing, the logo designed by Mark Carson is in the lead.

Well, he's certainly done his research. Initially I wasn't too keen on his design because it didn't say 'Sun' to me at all, but it has grown on me. I don't like Jeff's set because it is not properly round, the colours don't work together and it reminds me of a phoenix. The bird also doesn't seem to be holding the clock correctly.

Suslik's Twirl set is good, and looks better at the low resolutions than Carson's set, but overall I'd vote for Carson's (if I could) over it mainly because I think the calender icon is better than a clock icon.
