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.

#2 Hmm!

It's funny, the only two people to have commented here (Gnu and myself) happen to like Jeff's the best while that's far behind in the voting there.

There are some practical reasons why it's the best one. For one thing, it sports the yellow color that would go with something called Sunbird and could serve as distinguishing from the Firefox red and Thunderbird blue.

So why the decision to close voting to only those contributing in that particular thread?
