A month ago I crossed the five year milestone at Mozilla, and my first post on this blog was exactly five years to the day. I’ve recently decided to move on from the corporation to try out design work in an entirely different space.
It’s been a tremendous honor working with all of you. Every top tech company has people who are brilliant, but few have people who are so warm, so kind, and so incredibly passionate.
This blog chronicles all of my design work over the years. I’ve recently posted a look at some of the crazier conceptual work we’ve done. I’ve also posted a talk I gave at PARC on the eve of the Firefox 4 launch that reviews why Mozilla exists, our design philosophy, and a comprehensive look at some of the specific principles that have guided the design of Firefox 3 and Firefox 4.
Some highlights from the last five years:
-Interactive design of the awesome bar
-Designed the one click bookmarking interface
-Art direction for every visual resource in the application
-Created an iconic form
-Managed a refresh of the Firefox icon
I’ve spent 1/6 of my life working on the design of Firefox. For the past five years Mozilla has felt like home, and the people here have felt like family.
I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved. It’s been an amazing adventure.
