Should we discuss what the final shape of the #firefox/#fennec#contest is supposed to be, before the next #twif deadline? If so, is here good or do we do this thing on GitLab or IRC/Matrix until we have something final?
I really like the overall design, too. Just one little thing bothers me. I think the icon should be a bit more round. At the moment it looks like an egg. Maybe this is intended, but if not, can you try how it would look if the fennec a bit thinner at the top?
I don’t disagree, but I fount this version to be more pleasing. There are multiple things that would need to change for “egg shape” (it’s more of elongated circle). It just looks the best that way
Focus is about Blue -> Red gradient, so it makes sense that it has some purple in it. I find that difference in colour of Fennec (it is quite short eared, adult Fennec, because apparently ears get smaller the older Fennec is), white with pink in case of Focus and Yellow -> Reddish Purple in case of Fennec (not to mention completely different alignment) is something that differentiates it enough to make it obvious what it is
I feel like Klar is a little bit misrepresented, as is isn’t really Focus anymore, but that’s completely different discussion (Fennec Klar would have been kick-ass name)
What I tried to achieve is different colour scheme of Fennec and Firefox, where Firefox has clear Fire and Water thing going on, Fennec is desert animal, which inspired me to go the route of Disney’s Aladdin colour scheme (as it’s about desert too I guess). Purple -> Yellow, with break into reddish purple (which causes that nice orange in the middle).
I juste wanted to point out that the color purple is the one used for Firefox Focus/Klar, which is also available in FDroid. I fear this might be confusing. The idea is when you see a fox on a circle to know which kind of firefox version it is. Orange+blue = Firefox, Purple = Focus, Blue+other blue = Firefox nightly.
Or maybe it is just me. But when I see the new icon today I immediatly think of Firefoy Focus.
Also I’m not sure if it is suppose to be a fennec fox, or just a regular fox, but I guess it is not a big deal.
Great job, it is definitly a great improvement over the old one.
It’s frankly 20s flatification process, so tail and back are a little rough around the edges, which could be fixed if I spent more time on it, that’s not the point though.
If we were to abandon Photon design guidelines in favor of Material, that would mean changing all the Photon Symbolic icons in Fennec to Material symbolic (which differ quite a lot in style). Otherwise it would look out of style for majority of icons.
Firefox fork is terrible for this kind of unification
The new design really looks nice and fresh compared to the current design.
As for the colors I would rather go with the F-Droid blue and green as Fennec F-Droid is a special Firefox flavor from this community and in my opinion deserves a stronger reflection of F-Droid.
The colors of the new design resembles to many current original Mozilla Firefox flavours. F-Droid’s Fennec should be more unique and distinguishing from Mozilla.
