Instagram new logo


Everyone’s favourite social photo-sharing app now has a new look. Instagram’s much-loved retro camera look has been ditched for something cleaner, simpler. It says it’s “inspired by the previous app icon,” but personally, I think it has lost much of its identity.

The icon now features a simpler camera, and the rainbow is now a circular gradient. Instagram also updated icons for its other apps including Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse.

Instagram has also enhanced the look and feel within the app. It’s familiar, yet feels cleaner and slicker.
