Hi Jessilyn, I am about to get started on some of these graphic requests..hoping you can clarify what is needed for the intro graphic...what type of content will be associated with this graphic?

Thanks!

Hey Matt,

Of course! A potential headline is "All things Firefox" for this section. It's going to talk about how Firefox is not only a desktop browser, but a mobile browser, an operating system, a video contest, etc.

Maybe something that shows the whole Firefox family?

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions and please feel free to shoot a couple of options this way if that's helpful.

Thanks MT!

I LOVE the plugin block image. That style = perfect for the newsletter.

The other images aren't quite hitting the spot. It's best if the images don't have a background (other than white) and the image itself is a cut out. Although I love the Feature 6 image :)

Some thoughts/ideas:

----
Intro - the intro has changed a little bit:

Once upon a time...

...not that long ago, Firefox was just a browser on your desktop computer. Of course, that's still true today, but it's also much more - it's a group of products and services designed to keep you in control of your life online. 

I think we can use just the regular Firefox logo for this - unless you have some other ideas inspired by the copy

----

Feature 1

The arrow makes me feel like I'm supposed to press it to refresh my browser. Do you have any creative takes on a symbol for saving time or shortcuts?

We could also use an image from last month (but it'd be better to have something new):
http://image.e.mozilla.org/lib/fe9915707361037e75/m/1/Stopwatch.png


----
Feature 2

This is too close to the Android image we used last month:
http://image.e.mozilla.org/lib/fe9915707361037e75/m/1/android_feature2.png

Maybe something fun/cute like the android guy hugging the Firefox logo with a few hearts around them?


----

We'll also still need the themes and add-ons images. You can see an example format of these in Bug 834927


Thanks again, Matt. Let me know if you have any questions/thoughts on potential images.

Hey Matt - can you make a version of the Android graphic bigger - 403x403 (so we can use on Facebook?

I can open another bug, too. Let me know what you'd like me to do.

Hey Matt - can you try using the Viking and ConvoBlurb icons for the Bloody Vikings and Quick Translator add-ons? I know it's not per our usual style, but I'm curious what it will look like in the email.

Thanks for working on the 4 shortcuts. I'm excited to see what you come up with :)

This one I had a bit of trouble with due to the size of the existing icon...I was only able to bump it up a bit larger.

I was thinking this could possibly work to show the element of speed for shortcuts.

Feature1

Not to butt in on Jess's bug. :) But we've used this image a lot when we talk about speeding up Firefox. I get the connection with short cuts, but since we've used it for Firefox Speed, I'd prefer a different visual connection. But that's just moi. :) 

A thought - what about signs, like this, with logos on the signs? We could use it anytime we talk about shortcuts.

Just a thought

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm going to try and work out the sign idea.  Are there any specific logos that should be featured on this?

Comment 33

Just Firefox, I'd think. But when Jess returns from lunch, maybe she can input.

Logo wise - Firefox is perfect.

Shortcut wise here are some ideas:

'
+
Ctrl+K
Ctrl+F
Command symbol http://www.applegazette.com/mac/just-what-does-the-command-symbol-mean
arrows

Here's the shortcut signage idea, making use of the Firefox colour palette.

Loving this! When I load it in it looks a little dull and the writing a little fuzzy, especially when compared to the other images (ie the Plugin Block).

Do you mind taking a stab to make it a little more shiny & crisp like the plugin block?

Thanks MT!
