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.

I like the new proposed icon set, it's very important to me that it matches Firefox's set. However, the back and forward buttons are the old-winstripe ones, not the new ones we got in Firefox 0.9.1. I think the back and forward buttons was the main gripe people had with the new winstripe theme, there's just something about them that really bothers me. If the problem is how to use the new icon style for the old >> button (you can't just line up two of the new style arrows, it'd look retarded), I suggest they use the more commonly seen >| glyph instead. Hope that makes sense :)

Of the logos I like Carson's the most, the orange modified version is best though the green is nice too.
