On Wednesday, the Facebook-owned picture-sharing facility, Instagram upgraded its iOS and Android Apps with an innovative, blandish design and iridescent app icon.
Instagram’s innovative design exchanges the Polaroid-inspired camera with rainbow inflection for a perkier and more austere look.
Instagram Changes its Logo in a Remarkable Way
According to Instagram’s head of design Ian Spalter, the purpose of the great modification was to get the design more coordinated with the aesthetics of the app’s users.
“The Instagram logo and design was beginning to feel, well… not reflective of the community, and frankly we thought we could make it better.”
Ian Spalter writes in a post.
The company besides changing the Logo is also introducing some pictorial twists to its flagship app. The adulate black and white design we first speckled previous month is formally coming to Instagram’s iOS and Android apps.
With the innovative design, both apps now have a cleaner, less colorful design. All in-app text is now black and white and notification icons have been transformed from orange to red.
Instagram is of the view that the new black-and-white look is meant to put more highlighting on users’ photos and videos instead of the app itself.
“While the logo is a colorful doorway into the Instagram app, once inside the app, we believe the color should come directly from the community’s photos and videos.”
In addition the company also upgraded the navigational icons, the home, search, camera, activity and profile buttons, on both forms of its flagship app to make them feel more intuitive to their own platforms.
Instagram’s first phase in the remake was to compress the original icon.
“These early “flattening” explorations lacked the visual weight of the original. The skeumorphic style that dominated early versions of iOS has the benefit of giving icons solidity. Things felt tangible, despite being pixels.”
Hence the team diverted their consideration to the app’s rainbow, which became valiant and brighter, compared with the last design.
