Instagram just gave itself a new logo and it will take a while to grow on us

Ugh

Well, you read the headline, you already know what this story is about and you’ve seen the image. All that’s left is for me to let you know what I think about it. I hate it. But I think I’ll change my mind after using it for a week. Maybe two. I’ll let you know, either way. Lol, check this out:

And if you’re interested, here’s their original copy.

Today we’re introducing a new look. You’ll see an updated icon and app design for Instagram. Inspired by the previous app icon, the new one represents a simpler camera and the rainbow lives on in gradient form. You’ll also see updated icons for our other creative apps: Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse.

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.

The Instagram community has evolved over the past five years from a place to share filtered photos to so much more — a global community of interests sharing more than 80 million photos and videos every day. Our updated look reflects how vibrant and diverse your storytelling has become.

Thank you for giving this community its life and color. You make Instagram a place to discover the wonder in the world. Every photo and video — from the littlest things to the most epic — opens a window for people to broaden their experiences and connect in new ways.
