Instagram Updated Their Logo And The Internet Went Bonkers!


So a few days ago, Instagram decided to update their look and feel and they started rolling out a new user interface and logo. In a blog post, they mentioned that the new look has been inspired by the ever-growing community of photographers. They mentioned, โ€œInspired by the previous app icon, the new one represents a simpler camera and the rainbow lives on in gradient form.โ€

These are the new logos for Instagram’s line of apps, namely, Instagram, Layout, Boomerang, and Hyperlapse.

I seriously have no idea what to feel about this.



And here is the new and updated User Interface for Instagram.

Clean blacks and whites and sharp edges. This I definitely like.


But… The social community which is ever so attached to its Facebooks, and Twitters, and Snapchats didn’t take well to it.

Twitter (obviously, every single time) was first to start ripping apart Instagram. So jokes were made, memes were shared, hate was spewed โ€“ all in all, a gala Twitter field day.


Here’s a lowdown of what happened.

1. Because Indian touch banta hai boss!


2. When you’re forced to think if Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was behind the new design.


3. When every office person knew what was actually up.


4. When some people just found it โ€œcute.โ€


5. Bura na maano, Instagram logo hai!


6. That shit so tight that even Instagram logo designers be trippin’ all night long.


7. We feel you Kunjal, we feel you.


8. There hasn’t been a more accurate representation of anything ever.


9. What if Lalit Modi was behind this? *gasp*


10. Maybe the Insta logo just decided to behave like another random girl, and the designers decided to behave like their friends.


11. This is what might have ACTUALLY gone down.


12. Whoa! Now that that you think about it… Cannot unsee!


13. I’m feeling Japanese flag designer lazy.

While social media raves, rants, and rues over the new logo design, we turn to you.

What do you think of Instagram’s new logo design?
