If you are a fan of the Firefox web browser you’ve probably spent a minute or two pondering the application’s primary symbol—a little orange fox wrapped around a blue globe. The Firefox and Thunderbird icon sets were designed by a hand-picked Mozilla team including Jon Hicks of Hicksdesign in the U.K. Hicks has a great web site and has worked on some pretty cool stuff, including the web site of conflict resolution and reconciliation organisation The Forgiveness Project. Hicks’ article Branding Firefox discusses his work on everyone’s favourite web critter. This article, and Hicks’ web site, are definitely worth a look.
