Goodbye to the instant camera
The previous Instagram logo was clearly inspired by instant cameras. In fact, even the name of the application was inspired by these cameras. That is why, until now, the app logo had continued to have the same appearance as then. Even the word “Insta” appeared on the logo itself.
Well, we can now say goodbye to that old logo that was already starting to be quite retro. In fact, it wouldn’t have even been weird if it had been changed years ago. following the path that iOS and Android had followed to make everything minimalist. Instagram decided to continue to have a skeumorphist logo, and it has not been until now that they have changed it, for a completely different madman.
The new Instagram logo is minimalist. In fact, it would almost be relevant if it weren’t for an app as widely used as Instagram. The camera is still the protagonist in the logo, but now it is superimposed on a multicolored background. In fact, the logo is little more than a white square, a circle that represents the lens of a camera, and a dot that represents the flash, or the camera’s viewfinder.
Nothing else, that is now the Instagram logo, a completely different logo from the previous one, and a completely renewed logo, with a new minimalist style, and that will now replace the previous logo that they had used for the last almost six years.
