Please create a logo and wordmark for the Mozilla Brain Builders program as part of the Grow Mozilla visual system (see bug 713641 for reference). For background, this is the learning and development work that Dave Berz is doing that fits in to the overall Grow Mozilla plans. Dave and I were discussing how this could fit in the visual system and thought perhaps there could be a red shield with a person with a mortar board on their head. There are probably several other ways to approach this as well.
Thanks David for filing. I'll assign to Sean and see what he thinks. My concern is that we're starting to move away from a very simple system where new icons can be added easily by shifting a color or tapping into an icon-set. Are all the logos going to have a person in them? What is the timing for this?

Are all the logos going to have a person in them? I'm certainly open to suggests about how to make use of the system that's been set up. My take on the variations of the logos done so far was that we had settled on red being a consistent color and that people as an image was also a consistent and variations would involve different takes on the people.

Sure. And I didn't meant to suggest that we should change the system.. just having a hard time visualizing how the one established would properly scale. Especially if we need to use a person in all of them... which I feel might make things a little complex. it's not quite what I had in mind, but certainly doesn't mean it's the wrong approach. Since Sean did the system he's really the best person to advise on what works here. So, will let him comment.
Sean, fyi (see above thread).
Just wanted to check in to see if having this done by end of Q2 still sounded doable.
Friendly ping: Sean?
FYI, Dave and I were thinking of rolling this out on June 28. Would be great to have a logo to go along with it.
Ty, can you take this one? See the thread above for details (Sean also will have more background on the visual system he started).
Ill ask Sean for the visual system details tomorrow
Created attachment 634121 [details] Brain Builders Logo Very simple approach to the Brain Builders logo. It uses the exact styling created for the Grow Mozilla branding.
cool! is it worth getting rid of the latter and just having the cool dude and brain? simplifying so it feels a bit stronger ( my 2 cents ) otherwise, I like :)
The ladder implies the building aspect, plus acts as the brain stem/spine.
Ty, thanks for posting. I like it :) I'll catch up with Dave and the rest of Contributor Engagement for feedback and will get back to you soon.
Ty, Dave and the Contributor Engagement team all think this is great and we're excited to start using it. Can you post final version of the logo and the logo + wordmark?
Marking as fixed - thanks Ty!
Thanks Ty :)
