When was the current Instagram logo created?

This is how the app’s most famous logo was born. So famous that the majority of people thinks this was the original icon. Although it was designed in 2010, it was in use officially only from 2011.

When was the new Instagram logo created?

Systrom said in 2011 that he changed the logo because it “had nothing to do with Instagram,” and enlisted the help of one of the app’s users, designer and photographer Cole Rise, to design a new one back in the fall of 2010.

The new Instagram logo depicts a camera, but in the most minimal way, with just a square, a circle, and a dot. However, true to the first logo, it’s not a contemporary camera—it’s an old, 1970s or 80s, Polaroid-type camera, carrying connotations of nostalgia, childhood, family photos, and so on.

From a detailed polaroid camera floating on a white background, Instagram’s new logo is now flat, minimalistic, and following the latest graphic design trends.

WhatsApp logo was designed by Com and Acton at the initial stage of the app development. However, the design of the logo and the programming part could be outsourced to a third-party designer. The logo is unique and has not changed over time despite of changed owners.
