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.
Of course Carson's theme looks best! :-)
I have no problem with the green bird since it clearly distinguish the icon from the others by color.
I don't like set #2 since the clock totally lacks the 3D look present in Fx / Tb. I don't like set #3 because the purple and red colors clash awfully bad in my eyes.
