Dark Side of the Icon 

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

Hardly anyone is talking about it, or condemning it in ludicrously over-the-top language, but Instagram changed their icon yesterday. Gone is the odd but charming leather-topped camera, replaced by a flatter pictogram. Mashable caught up with Colin Rise, who designed the previous icon, to get his thoughts. Most interesting is a picture he shared of the “back” of the old Instagram icon.
