Instagram has a sexy new layout! The popular photo-sharing app introduced a design overhaul yesterday, updating its logo while also giving the app’s interface a more stark design!
Instagram debuted the new look with a blog post and a video that shows the evolution of the Facebook-owned app’s logo from the familiar retro-looking, brownish camera with a rainbow accent to a simple, white illustration of a camera set on a background gradient of hues that Instagram said reimagines the original rainbow.
"We’ve made improvements to how the Instagram app looks on the inside as well. The simpler design puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app" Instagram said in the blog post. That’s an important point to its more than 400 million monthly users! You’ll also see updated icons for our other creative apps: Layout, Boomerang, and Hyperlapse.
According to Instagram, the app’s users post more than 80 million photos and videos each day on average, which is a tremendous amount of volume and is likely the reason why the company would want to simplify its design, removing any clutter that gets in the way of the all-important content.
