Mozilla Foundation Design

Mozilla Foundation Design


Evergreen Illustrations

Illustrations should primarily incorporate our brand palette, textures, and styles in order to maintain brand consistency. Examples of these could include illustrations created for Foundation specific purposes such as the Foundation site and evergreen materials, IHR, PNI, the Mozilla Festival, Foundation posts on Instagram, etc.

Editorial and One-off Illustrations

One-off illustrations can divert from the brand when appropriate, but should be led and created by a Foundation designer. Advocacy campaigns or editorial illustrations that do not follow the brand styling can help to differentiate the Foundation evergreen content from our one-off timely content. Non-branded illustrations also offer visual variation across our campaigns. Use (designer-led) creative freedom! 🙌
