Hello all, 

This one is going live November 1st which is coming up very quickly. Not many comments in here, has there been conversation outside of the bug? I can't seem to find any docs detailing the gif creative. If it already exists can you please share here?

Matt is working on it now and we'll have it for review in Friday's creative meeting if not before, so there will be time for review before Monday's due date. Since this request came in much later than the other snippet requests, it was only assigned to Matt on Friday - but he's on it. 

To my knowledge, there is no documentation beyond slide 5 in this deck: https://docs.google.com/a/mozilla.com/presentation/d/19k7Sx76M0APXA1yITR8lVvcidbi7udUZ4-vX4c6YZVU/edit#slide=id.g406ed9eb7_057

There has been no more specific creative direction from MJ or Michaela on this snippet other than what is in my original comment, so if you have something more specific you'd like to see, please let us know as soon as possible! Otherwise, Matt will make a GIF using the fox tail animation, as planned.

Firefox10th_snippet_447x184_onScreen

Hi guys, I am wondering if both the larger and smaller snippet are to appear on a page at the same time, or will be they be mixed with other snippets?  For the larger snippet I have gone with the obvious route to include the 10th Anniversary graphic as the standalone graphic.  I am giving the smaller snippet some more thought as it looks a bit odd to have a similar graphic appear on a smaller scale directly below the larger one.

Also wondering if there is copy ready for the smaller snippet. Currently the copy is a placeholder.

Thanks,

Hey MT, thanks for sending the graphic! Yes, we will have a smaller snippet running with the graphic. The copy is ready, and there are multiple messages that will be rotated in and out, I've included them below. 

I will provide some guidance on the icon (small snippet graphic) shortly.

Hi guys, based on some of the feedback in the latest creative review, I've updated the smaller snippet to reflect a similar look found in other 10th Anniversary creative. I would also like to include an alternate version for the larger snippet.  Will attach shortly.

Thanks,
Matt

As mentioned I've created an alternate version for the larger snippet...not sure how possible this is from the dev side of things, but thought a larger version of the other offered some more impact on screen. 
 
Thanks,
MT

Thanks MT. I'm a fan of these, particularly the larger one you've included. I'll have confirmation today on whether we can go with the larger one. If so, we can close this one out!

Thanks, if the larger one is a go ahead, I've attached both a .png and .gif version at 2x.

Final image for use in snippet

I made a snippet template that removes the gap between the logo and the snippet, so we can use the larger version. For reference, I'm attaching the resized, optimized version of the image we're using (snippets doesn't yet support using PNGs at 2x for Retina screens, so I resized it down before running it through ImageOptim).

Hey MT, can you attach non retina version? Mike says we can't yet support...

svg version as well. Although would need to be optimized quite a bit.

Mike, viewing the preview, I'm still seeing the gap and the image looks pretty small? Can you confirm it will look OK on live tomorrow?

The logo change templates require you to specify the width and height of the image that's replacing the logo so it can size it properly. If none is provided, it defaults to 192x192.

I've updated the snippet you linked to have the proper width and height; the preview now shows up properly for me. You'll have to update the other snippets with the right width and height as well.
