Post, pose & pass on for OneWebDay

17 09 2009

The OneWebDay poster contest came to a close last Friday. We got in a bunch of really fun entries and saw some great interpretations of the “I ❤ the web” message. After a few days of voting, there were two clear favourites:


The choice is yours
We don’t want to hold anyone back from expressing their love for the web, so we’ve created a page where you can download your poster entry of choice. That said, special kudos to the folks at The Movement and to Sudhir Nair for designing the most popular entries!

Once you’ve chosen your poster, the instructions are simple:

  • Print or display your poster
  • Take a photo with your poster
  • Upload your photo to flickr or website of your choosing and tag it with #owdposter
  • Visit the Mozilla OneWebDay poster page to submit your pic for the 2009 photo contest

We’re looking for creative entries here. I’ll be in New York City on OneWebDay, so I’m hoping to find something or someone awesome to take my “I  ❤ the Web” with and something that tops what I’ve already done in the Mozilla Toronto office. I can’t wait to see what other people come up with.


Create the OneWebDay 2009 Poster for Mozilla

3 09 2009

If you read Mark Surman’s post about a OneWebDay poster on Monday and are have some artistic skills running through your veins, we invite you to design the OneWebDay 2009 poster for Mozilla.

The instructions are simple. Be as creative as you like, we just ask that you include the following elements:

  • The Mozilla and OneWebDay logos (logos can be found on the Mozilla Foundation wiki)
  • The words “I Love the Web” or “I ❤ the Web”
  • The URL
  • Text that encourages someone to steal, copy and repost the poster.

If you want to get double bonus creative points, feel free to make space in your design for people to add their own elements or messages. We’d like to create an “official” poster, but also leave it open for people to remix it, hack it and make it an easy expression of their love for the web.

OneWebDay is on September 22. To give us time to get the winning design out there, we’re asking artists to submit their designs by Friday, September 11. You can either submit them by e-mail or submit them to the Mozilla Creative Collective, tagged with “onewebday” or e-mail them to me at

Not only will the winning design have the glory of having their art plastered all over cubicles, workspaces, local stores, coffee shops, community centres and libraries, but we’ll also send some Mozilla swag your way.

Please help us out. Mark is threatening to design it himself if the community can’t come up with something. He’s threatening to use Wingdings to do it. And we all know that OneWebDay deserves much better than WingDings.
