Wireframe & Copy for Design

This is a bug to design a landing page for the lite-weight 3.6 upgrade campaign.

The core message:

allow user to see how fast their 3.6 version is against the most recent version of Firefox

-interaction with a universal symbol like a speedometer = great
-interaction with universal colors: red, yellow, green = great
-similar to http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
-no main navigation to Firefox site (see wireframe)
-simple footer to reenforce all selling points that reluctant users cling to: bookmarks, browsing history, inconvenience, crashes, and privacy

elements to include:

*emotional connection with a salutation - Hi there! or Hey there!
*success feedback, "Hi fives! We've packed up all your bookmarks!"
*a general emotional sentiment, "Bummer, you're still running an older version of Firefox"
*a face to Firefox, "Our engineers and designers have been working hard to make your Firefox better for you"

Wireframe attached.

Copy bug coming, but Matej is traveling, so to save time please work with the copy included on the wireframe itself.

Shooting to be launched in en-US as close to November 16, 2011 as possible.

We'd love to be able to do one design review by Wed and finalize design by Friday, November 11, 2011, passing PSDs to silverorange. 

RE: Copy - Matej is traveling, please use the copy provided in the wireframes. It's very close to what we want, and we'll have Matej to do the final polish once we're over to the coding phase.

Thanks.
I would also like to review Matej's final copy before we go live. Thanks!

Yes, Laura, you're the product owner, so you have sign-off before we go from staging to production. 

Lee, if you need any help, please let Laura Forrest, Laura Mesa, or me know, happy to walk through anything you have.

THanks guys.  This is definitely a tight turnaround...!  especially given MozCamp... but Lee is going to jump on this today and see what he can pull.

Are there existing speedometer graphics that you're referring to?  When you say "interaction" with speedometer / colors, what exactly are you thinking here? I read the description in the wireframe but seems pretty open-ended still and I'm not entirely sure what Lee needs to design.  If you can clarify these interactions a bit more, that'd be great.

Digging around various icons and illos I have, I found a few 'speedometer' graphics:
http://cl.ly/3e2D3N0s402p0A090g28

I'm not entirely sure what you guys had in mind for the interaction with these - anything beyond having the needles moving a little? Since we're doing a side by side comparison of v3.6 and v4, are we not just comparing SLOWER< to >FASTER?
Also, the speedometer should be for the "latest version" not version 4, right?

I'm not so sure any of those speedometers will be exactly right for this...those are kind of stylized and built for icons, whereas here it would seem that we need something more detailed or worthy of being the front & center image of the page.

I agree that it would help to have a greater understanding of what the interaction here is, though. Does each speedometer needle move a bit and then point to the appropriate number? And if so, what's the metric?

I'm comfortable saying "up to 7 times faster".

It would be cool if we could have the text say that, but then have the speedometers support the message by pointing to the appropriate numbers (say, 21 and 3, although I have no idea what the right metrics would be).

Comment 15

Do we need actual metrics? I'm assuming the simplified speedometer graphics basically communicate 

OLD VERSION = slow 
NEW VERSION = fast!

Also wondering if it could be fun to inject some of our casual Firefox tone instead of the metrics too? (not sure how localizable it would be - it's just an idea) 

SLOW END = Snails pace
FAST END = Face melting (or something less disturbing)

do we really need two speedometers though?  isn't it better to have one cool one (bigger perhaps) and have 3.6 on the "slow" end, and 4.0 on the fast ? that makes more sense to me than having to double up on the graphic...

I was deliberately vague and hacky with these, so please don't interpret as design direction. One speedometer would be great...

user of 3.6 lands on this page and the speedometer is in the low (red) slow area
call to action #1 is rollover to see how fast the latest Firefox is
call to action #2 download Firefox
call to action for users on latest version is share the speed test with friends, coworkers, and family 

Less copy is better, so it can be optimized and then localized

Hi all,
I wanted to get something for you to look at today (design will be refined for future iterations) - I took some liberties w/ the copy (it's all FPO, of course!) so we can see what the interaction might be like...

http://cl.ly/3V2i3T0y0q2J3a1m2F3o

My understanding is that on page load, we can detect which version the user has. Once they roll over the speedometer, they'll get either:

- "Firefox 3.6" version of copy + the "BUMMER" slow/message
   or
- "New Firefox" version of copy + the "SUPERFAST" fast/message

*NOTE - default, 3.6 and New Firefox states are all shown here simultaneously in mockup.

Thanks Lee! Other interaction notes:

*Speedometer will bounce lightly at 3.6 to draw the user's attention to it's mobility
*New Firefox is being used to capture all the version numbers (similar to New Twitter, but not like New Coke)
*Design is flexible for other versions to fall in the less optimized or "slower" area of the speedometer
*Simple footer design is taken from the persistent message campaign, which converts at 79+%

----

Feedback:

*eliminate the little "x" from the footer, since it's part of the design and not an overlay & include another upgrade button
*make the instructions to the user to rollover more obvious (examples: http://bit.ly/sS5aj5 and http://37signals.com/ roll over basecamp and click about to see how they use arrows)

Comment 21

Definitely a good start. I'd like to see some further refinements though. For one, everything is perhaps *too* centered...would like to see things laid out in a more interesting way. Also, it feels a little empty now, which might be based on the layout or might be based on the content. Is there more we can say here?

Also, I definitely agree with Chrissie's feedback in comment #20, particularly around making the rollover more obvious. It's pretty subtle right now.

Comment 22

Chrissie and John - thanks for your feedback this morning. Copy is still FPO. We should get Matej's input here, once he's back online.

- Simplified layout
- More clear and direct CTA
- Including an upgrade button in footer
- Page will detect user's version of Firefox and needle will point to Old or New version + expose message 

**should the meter's needle be 'idle' until user rolls over it to reveal their version? If page detects user's version on page load, and needle moves/exposes copy points, then maybe the "Roll over speedometer..." CTA is not necessary?

Lee, thanks for this update, it looks really polished. A few notes:

*gauge - it might be helpful to go from blue to something to red, so we can target the Firefox 4, 5, 6, and 7 group in the middle
*fun - any way to add a bit of fun or dazzle, possibly with 3 markers of success: chugging along, cruise control, faster than the future

Comment 24

Thanks Lee. I know we talked about this earlier, but I wanted to go on record with the note that anything we can do to make the speed really pop (without having to rollover anything) would be great. What we have now is a good start, but it still feels like we could make the case more strongly and directly. (Matej, please make a note of that as you look this over.)

Would love to hear from Laura & Patrick on this too.

I agree with Chrissie and John here. The graphic is coming along really nicely, but maybe there's a way to add more emphasis. Could we maybe make the "faster side" or the "slow side" glow in the respective states?  Maybe with a light blue? I think it would add a dynamic feel to the graphic.
(Assignee)

Comment 26

7 years ago
It think that the movement of the needle is really going to help emphasize speed here - we're just not seeing it in this static graphic. To Laura's suggestion, I do think there are some ways to highlight/differentiate the Slow vs. Fast sides with color and possibly emphasizing phrases like, "VROOOOM!" and "bummer." to make it more dynamic. 

Copy is going to help out greatly, so I'm hoping we can see the combination of visual design + copy, before we keep chewing on the graphics too much. 

Chrissie, your note regarding the gauge in comment 23 about the intermediary colors could* work, but setting this interaction/graphic up to accommodate versions 4,5,6 and 7 seems like a departure from our the initial direction of the page (2 states: SLOW, FAST ...Upgrade)

Comment 27

Lee + all, if we're close to done, we can move over to have Steven code, so we can experience the bouncing and animation. Matej can add copy into the design and we can play with it in HTML. I know Lee is about to get on ze plane to Berlin, so what do you think about taking the concept over to HTML and then playing with words and effects with a real hover?

Comment 28

Indeed, I am getting on ze plane soon, so here's a link to the latest version of PSD. 

http://intothefuzz.com/leetom/Mozilla.com/PSD/upgrade_01.psd

If there's more iterating to do we can either do it in HTML, or I can pick back up on this when I land in Berlin.

yes please!
OK, here's a pass at this. I tried to incorporate all the feedback I could see, but I'm playing catch up, so please let me know if I missed anything.


[HEADLINE]
How fast is
YOUR FIREFOX?

[COPY]
New Firefox is 7 times faster. (That's a lot!) Roll over the speedometer to see if yours can keep up.

[OLD FIREFOX COPY]
Seriously?
That just isn't going to cut it. Stop browsing in the past and upgrade now! 

[NEW FIREFOX COPY]
Now we're talking!
Feels better, doesn't it? Welcome to the future of the Web. It's nice here.

[LEFT SIDE GRAPHIC]
Old Firefox = Sadface

[RIGHT SIDE GRAPHIC]
New Firefox = Yay!

[FOOTER]
New Firefox is faster, free (as always), crashes less and protects your privacy more.
Upgrading takes less than a minute and you won't lose your history or bookmarks. Hooray!

Comment 32

That copy looks great to me, thanks Matej. The only thing I'm wondering is if we should be referring to it as "the new Firefox" vs "New Firefox". The latter is shorter and more colloquial, but also sounds more like an official product name. Might be better to stay from that.

Thoughts?

Please say "up to 7 times faster".

Otherwise, I think this looks good. I also think we should use "latest" versus "new" since its going to be changing so often (Firefox 9, Firefox 10, etc).

I feel like there's something more engaging about losing "the." It seems more exciting somehow. My only concern is that it sounds too much like New Twitter. I'm really fine with either, but slightly prefer the shorter.

Again, fine with either, but I think new says the same as latest. It will always be the new Firefox when it comes out, so I don't think there's anything misleading or wrong about it.
