Instagram is a medium of where the people share the picture.
It has completely changed the definition of visual perception of the
spectators. Kevin Systrom, CEO of Instagram first developed the concept of the
logo of the app. Earlier, the logo shows the Polaroid camera icon. Mostly, we
use Instagram to create stories out of pictures. It has introduced completely a
different kind of visual content for us. The first use of this Bell and Howell
Polaroid camera back of 1940 became the logo of Instagram. Systrom again did
some brainstorming sessions with his fellow designers before coming to the next
logo of the app. In the next icon, one started using hashtags for often.
Hashtags become the new status statement for the daily users. In the updated
Instagram we find out different kinds of features like Boomerangs, Layout, and
Hyperlapse. The developers of Instagram actually want their users to use these
advanced picture editors on the single platform. Now the users are highly
obliged to access all these editing forms on the same platform.
In the original logo, one noticed different features like
viewfinder, rainbow, and lens as appealing majorly. The designing team of
Instagram tried to explain how the users get connected with those of iconic
features of early Instagram. In the recently updated Instagram logo, one will
never find the texture of that feeling which they used to get from the Polaroid
shaped earlier logo.
The developers substantiate their point of
developing simple iconic features in the recent app for easy navigation
throughout the app. So firstly, it takes time to make acceptance of such a
sudden change in icon. With time, the users can also start accepting this newly
developed logo of Instagram.
