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.

Until I read your post I had never heard of "The Aztec god Huitzilopochtl". Pure coincidence. I used a hummingbird/honeycreeper sort of bird for the logo because most of the real sunbirds are that sort of critter. Seems like the term sunbird has been widely applied to lots of bird species, some of which don't look all that related to me.
