Internet By The People For The People

Right now there are no t-shirts in the Mozilla Store that have the Mozilla logo on them, so I’ve been working with a designer to create a new shirt design. I wanted to post the latest version here so people could take a look and comment.

This design borrows some of the feel of the old Hack shirt. I think the circle of stars also borrows a bit from the European Union flag, but with Europe’s high Firefox usage I guess the connection makes sense🙂

If you have any thoughts or suggestions about this design, feel free to post your comments here.

  1. Overall I like the idea. “Internet by the people, for the people” is just great.

    I love my old hack shirts but they are getting a little long in the tooth. I have another white T with the lizard on the front and mozilla.org on the back that even my wife likes to wear.

    It does seem a bit busy to me though. I think I would like the text to be on the back with the mozilla.org centered at the top like the old white T. Also, please include a white T.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. Having 10 stars instead of 11 is a great idea. I also think putting ‘by’ on the same line as ‘the people’ makes sense too.

  3. Personally, I think “mozilla.org” should be “mozilla.com”.
    If a random bypasser wants to check out this mozilla thingie, he should be greeted with the refreshed Fx3 mozilla.com, which is looking very attractive and “welcoming” so far.

    Or even better: Just remove “.org” and have just “mozilla”. That would ungeek the shirt a bit.

  4. david: I am not that keen on the design – i don’t like the bold lines under the dino’s head. I would like to see them come up with a few other ideas to choose from. And I agree with smaug, if the intent is to bring back the old look and feel of mozilla.org, then a design that captures that flavor.

  5. I do think that we should be bring back the old look and feel as much as possible. There are some valid concerns about parts of the old design though, so personally I don’t think it makes sense to fully revert to the original style. For instance, we can bring back the use of stars without bringing back a red star.
