Description

6 years ago
Hi all. We noticed today that SUMO is using a live text version of the Firefox wordmark rather than the proper file (ex. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox). 

It's important for branding reasons that we maintain logo consistency, so please update to the correct one. You can download that here: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/styleguide/identity/firefox/wordmarks/

Thanks-
John
What do we do for Firefox for mobile landing page?

This isn't as easy as it looks. These are dynamic, database-driven pages.

I'm sure we could come up with a solution here. Probably using the standard wordmark with HTML text after it to denote the product type would work. Sean, Lee - any more specific ideas?

Be that as it may, it's still important to be consistent with our branding.

Checking back in...any updates? What happens next?
Is the "Firefox" product the only one we need to have as a wordmark? Or do we also need to apply the same rule for "Firefox for mobile"?

I know branding is super important but sometimes it conflicts with our accessibility and localization requirements.

Firefox is the only part of the equation that needs to stick with the wordmark...descriptors like "for mobile" or "for desktop" or whatever can be written out in system type and can be localized as needed.

Okay, let's try to figure out how to do this. 

John, is there no way for us to get the rights to use the correct font on our website? It really pains me to put an image of a string on our website and it's rather cumbersome for localization, in languages where "for mobile" is not appended but prepended for example.

Hi Kadir. I may be misunderstanding the request, but to reiterate what I said in comment #5, the only aspect here that needs to be in image form is the Firefox wordmark itself. Descriptors like "for mobile" or "for desktop" can be written as HTML site text and localized as needed.

Can you give an example of when it's prepended instead?
