About Mozilla Foundation
The Foundation is also the sole shareholder in the Mozilla Corporation, the maker of Firefox and other open source tools. Mozilla Corporation functions as a self-sustaining social enterprise – money earned through its products is reinvested into the organization. Mozilla Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Foundation, makes consumer Internet products that advance the same values outlined in the Mozilla Manifesto.
Firefox, Mozilla Foundation flagship product, gives increased choice, privacy and security to 100s of millions of people around the world. Product exploration initiatives like Mozilla Foundation ‘connected devices’ program aim to bring more mainstream products with Mozilla values into the world. Technology initiatives like Rust and Mozilla’s online game center aim to spread new thinking about open technology across the whole of the Internet industry.
Established in 2003, guided by the Mozilla Manifesto, the Mozilla Foundation believes the Internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible to all.
The impetus for this project was Mozilla’s desire to be better known and better understood by its past, present and future audiences. For too long they had been associated only with their most famous product, Firefox, and their not-for-profit status simply hadn’t registered. As they themslves stated, ‘we’re uniquely able to build products, technologies, and programs that keep the Internet growing and healthy, with individuals informed and in control of their online lives’.
What made this project stand-out, right from the off, was Mozilla’s determination that, as an open source software company, they should also rebrand ‘in the open’.
The final logo and design system
Eventually, the idea that used the internet protocol won through. It is a simple and memorable idea which neatly represents how people and knowledge are linked in an increasingly connected world, and it resonates well with their core internal and external audiences. The final design step involved ‘rebooting’ the idea from its two previous iterations in order to reach the final outcome, which you see here.
