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.

#13 A mix of two?

After seeing these sets, I would actually prefer a cross between Carson's and Suslik's icons. I think the calendar is a better image than a clock for a *calendar* application, however I think Suslik's bird looks better. The head of Mark's bird tends to get lost at smaller sizes, while Suslik's looks good right down to 16x16.

Why not have a bit of collaboration between the icon artists? After all, Sunbird is a long way from 1.0 so there's no rush - let's get the best icon possible!
