Opera set for UI overhaul with new designer
Posted on 13 Oct 2008 at 11:49, by Simon Aughton
Opera has appointed a renowned icon and website designer to overhaul the interface of its eponymous web browser.
Jon Hicks, best known for his design of the Firefox icon, will be responsible for the design of Opera’s desktop and mobile browsers, as well as the company’s overall brand image.
Having been critical of elements of the Mac version of Opera in the past, though not its features, Hicks is looking forward to working with the “open, flexible, and jolly lovely fellows” at Opera.
“After all getting to work full-time on a browser? It’s a dream!,” he says. “I’ll hopefully get to implement the ideas I have for the logo and branding too. I can’t wait to get my teeth into it!”
Opera 9.6 has just been released.
