We need new icons for every predefined Collection.
Who can provide the new assets?

As a reference, the current icons for 'Social' are here:

List of predefined collections:

Question - 
What should happen when renaming a pre-installed (shipped on device) collection?
Should the bg change to reflect the new name or not?
We should also update the customization instructions on when this lands.

Here are the smart collection graphics, we export them at 320x480 first, just want to make sure they work correctly first:

Thanks Patryk, added screenshots with the new graphics.
Regarding the different sizes for the assets, we discussed having different version per device height:
320x480.png, 480x800.png, 480x854.png, 540x960.png, 720x1280.png and 1080x1920.png

I am not sure the device height is available in build time (ni? yurenju)

in case it is not available, maybe a better solution will be to use the @2x, @2.5 versioning?

updated PR to include all 10 default collections on homescreen (attached screenshot).

please note that if you |reset-gaia| with this branch, the new icons will appear only after a collection updates, meaning - one of the first 3 apps have changed.

for the Social collection you will have to reorder the first 3 apps to trigger an update. for the rest of the collections it will be enough to open it (make sure device is online so web apps can load and trigger the update).
Notice, the apps that appear in the Collection icons, in the screenshot attached, are local (Israel related).
When YOU update your device, it'll show apps that are relevant to YOUR location.
Amir, I thought I replied this bug but seems not, sorry.

the resolution information is not available on build time, so yes, using filename like @2x.jpg will be better than using resolution.

Let me ask UX.

UX - The file changes being requested here are too big in size. Can you figure out a mitigation plan here?
Flags: needinfo?(firefoxos-ux-bugzilla)
Clearing the ni? for UX since this is being dealt with at a broader scale.

When you decide if this is migrated to @1.5, etc.. please let me know for bug 1020134, thanks

In bug 1030440 Jacqueline has defined the three collections that should ship with the device as Social, Games, and Music. Because the full set is too large, one option might be to build with only these three, and have the rest come from the server. The problem with this is that I'm not sure if the suggestions list would be able to determine the difference between the defaults which we store locally, and results from the server. We don't want to remove a default collection, then re-add it to see a different icon for example. Potentially serving all background assets from a CDN might be the best option here. 

Also we should definitely use .png, @1.5x, @2x, etc extensions because that's how we ship the proper image to the device - it would probably help here.
