Mozilla’s New Logo

Using the symbols :// instead of the “ill” in Mozilla, Johnson Banks’ new logo for the company is causing a bit of a stir.

Regardless, Johnson Banks’ design (called Protocol 2.0) has made an impact, and was chosen from four finalist concepts which were released back in September. Studio founder Michael Johnson says, “It’s been fascinating process, involving thousands of views and opinions worldwide—the world’s first genuinely open-source rebrand.” Read more about their approach and process at It’s Nice That.
