As with previous main Firefox releases, Mozilla is working on a new version of mozilla.com for Firefox 3 launch later this year.
The redesign, commissioned to The Royal Order, a Chicago-based design agency, with illustrations by Delicious Design League, is currently in draft status but the mockup below, posted by Mozilla’s Creative Director, John Slater, is close to what we will see for Firefox 3.
John explains the concept behind the design:
Our somewhat ambitious goal for the illustrations was that they should abstractly reflect the good things about the Web itselfâ€¦things like connectivity, collaboration, creativity, etc.
The illustration of the tree is meant to suggest the power and possibility of the Web, as well as the way Mozilla works. And the various handmade elements, such as the pencil-drawn lines and background shadings are all meant to evoke the grassroots, people-powered nature of Mozilla itself.
I like it. What about you? Leave your comments here or on John’s post.
