Earlier this year we opened our design process with a special contest to create the official Firefox 3 T-shirt – a challenge that was quickly met with global enthusiasm! We received over 2000 submissions representing countless hours of hard work and creative efforts from a passionate design community. The Flickr contest group, with over 3,500 members was bustling with activity, collaboration and discussion. The result was an impressive pool of talent and many amazing works of art, all in support of Firefox.

Our team here at Mozilla tackled the difficult task of selecting the top 5, which were then passed on to you for a final decision. Garnering the overwhelming majority of the votes was the “lineup” design by Tracie Andrews (a.k.a “egirluk”), a talented illustrator and graphic designer from the UK. Tracie was among the most prolific designers and we’re very excited to have her work featured in the Mozilla Store.

Although open to interpretation, the winning design, with iconic symbols of people and a fox, lends itself perfectly to the concept of community – which is an important part of what Firefox is all about. To learn more about Tracie and her creative process, check out her website and John Slater’s post on The Story Behind The Shirt.
