Creating an Identity for the Mozilla Developer Network

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 07:50:25 +0000

We’re in the process of building the Mozilla Developer Network to be a useful resource for developers working on the various Mozilla-based software projects and the open web in general. Obviously, we can’t do this on our own, but with an IT support company in London like Mustard IT on our team, we were quick to get the ball […]

Browsing Without Borders

Fri, 29 Jan 2010 15:15:38 +0000

Today’s launch of the first-ever mobile version of Firefox is definitely a big deal. So, like we’ve done with other Mozilla big deals, we created a cool design to help celebrate the occasion. When we say browsing without borders, we mean that Firefox will not block any websites for you. To make it happen, we turned to our […]

Big news from the world of Mozilla: we released Firefox 3.6 today! (I’ll pause for a moment while you go download it.) As always, we made a bunch of site content updates in an attempt to convey the full awesomeness of the new browser. Here are a few of the highlights (Laura Mesa also has more details over on her […]

The results from the Mozilla Creative Collective’s “Firefox Goes Mobile” design challenge are in, and I’m happy to announce that the winner is “Pocketfox”, by Yaroslaff Chekunov.

Building Online Communities: A Chat with Markos Moulitsas

Wed, 08 Jul 2009 15:13:10 +0000

As we work towards the upcoming launch of the Mozilla Creative Collective, a site dedicated to building our visual design community, I’ve begun reaching out to experts in various fields to learn from their experiences. Since the topic of community is always a hot one around Mozilla, I thought I’d share the conversations on this blog. For the first […]

Building a Mozilla Visual Design Community

Thu, 18 Jun 2009 07:22:32 +0000

The Mozilla community has achieved more incredible things than I can count, and includes experts dedicated to disciplines ranging from software development to customer support to marketing to QA and much more. But, one key area that’s traditionally lacked an organized community is visual design. Art is such a powerful form of communication, and over […]

World’s Fastest Clapper, Meet World’s Fastest Firefox

Mon, 01 Jun 2009 11:17:55 +0000

Note: I just announced the launch of our Fastest Firefox community marketing project over at the Mozilla Blog. Here’s a crossposted and slightly expanded version: Firefox 3.5 will be here soon, and it’s shaping up to be by far the fastest Firefox yet: more than twice as fast as Firefox 3 and 10 times as fast as Firefox […]

Tomorrow, Alix Franquet and I will join the fun with a short presentation on how you can use videos to help spread the word. Here’s a quick look at what we’ll be covering: * […]

Mozilla Creative Collective: Logo Complete!

Fri, 27 Mar 2009 07:24:42 +0000

The Mozilla Creative Collective is a newish project designed to organize and grow our budding visual design community. When the site launches later this year it should be a pretty awesome place for designers to share their work, make new connections and help spread the word about Firefox, Thunderbird and the other Mozilla products. Of course, any visual design […]

Announcing the Mozilla Creative Collective

Mon, 02 Feb 2009 11:43:32 +0000

As I’ve mentioned in the past, building up Mozilla’s visual design community is one of my (and Tara’s) top priorities for 2009. There are already designers out there doing good work, of course, but the larger scale possibilities are nearly limitless if we get more organized and continue to bring more people into the fold. With that […]
