The New Icon of Instagram - Includes a Bonus!

Today, 11.05.2016, Instagram has changed its famous skeuomorphic logo, along with the icons of Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse.

The previous one was a retro looking camera. The whole idea was in line with that authentic icon. Remember? Everything was sepia or 1960s looking one time at Instagram. Now, they have modernized the icon and created a brighter and a flatter one. It looks like a sunset, a rainbow and gives a warm feeling.
Here is what I personally think. I do not agree with Ian Spalter, the Head of Design at Instagram. He said, “The former logo no longer reflected the brand or its community”. It may be right, since the gradual introduction of longer videos and the time spent watching videos on Instagram has increased a lot. However, the authentic logo was a perfect fit since it has digital yet antique content or minds involved. But in the end, I like the new sunset logo.
