Instagram Logo

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. A distinctive feature is that it confines photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images, in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras. Users can also apply digital filters to their images.

About Instagram Logo

Instagram's logo features a stylized design of a camera that represents the social media platform's focus on photo and video sharing. The background is a gradient from purple at the top, fading into pink and finally orange towards the bottom. This gradient is one of the most recognizable aspects of the logo.

To the left of the logo, there are four lines with varying lengths and colors of blue, purple, yellow, and red, emulating the idea of a rainbow or light spectrum, which adds a playful and dynamic element to the design.

The camera icon itself includes a viewfinder in the upper right, depicted as a black square with a smaller circle inside representing the lens, hinting at the imagery-centered nature of the app.

The main lens of the camera is large and centered, rendered with a lustrous finish that mimics a real camera lens. It has highlights and shadows that give it a 3-dimensional appearance, and a light blue reflective accent on the upper left side. The lens is encircled by a thin white ring, followed by an outer ring with a gradient that goes from light beige to darker brown, simulating the camera body or casing.

Below the main lens, there is a dot, seemingly a microphone or a status LED indicator, maintaining the camera-like theme.

Instagram Logo Information and History

The Instagram logo has been undergoing several changes since it was first introduced. It used to look like a traditional camera, and was reminiscent of its IRL counterparts. It has also changed the way it displays photos in the feed and the thank you message that users receive from the application. The logo is an important part of the overall branding of the app. Users can recognize the different icons in the feed and the icons used by other apps and websites.

The Instagram logo is based on a vintage camera. The smooth square is the camera, the circle in the middle represents the lens, and the small dot in the upper right corner represents the flash. It has undergone a few changes since it first launched, starting with a Polaroid-like design. Later, it evolved into a highly detailed drawing of a Sierre 120 camera with rainbow stripes in place of the traditional black-and-white version.

In May 2016, the Instagram logo was completely revamped. The app was designed to be more diverse, including video-sharing, social networking, and advertising. Although the app has grown in popularity, the logo hasn't lost the essential design element. The Polaroid camera is a popular icon that evokes nostalgia and youthfulness. In addition to this, the app allows users to share their favorite moments with friends, and keep track of world events.

Basic Colors

We've taken a look at the image and pulled out some colors that are common across lots of logos. The colors below aren't the exact colors found in the image, but approximations to common colors.


Advanced Colors

We've extracted the below 'advanced colors' from the logo. These should be much closer to the actual colors found in the logo. Our extractor tries to only take the main colors of the image and tries to ignore shading on anti-aliasing or shadows. This generally leads to better results, but in some circumstances you might find a few unusual colors being pulled from the logo.

Light grey
French blue
Pinkish brown

Hex Colors

The below are the hex colors that are found in the logo. You can assume that these are the actual colors used in the logo. Our color extraction tool that takes the colors from the logo tries to ignore anti-aliasing and shadows, so you may sometimes find a slightly odd result, but this is rare. These colors should be very similar to the Advanced Colors, but you'll notice subtle differences. If you're interested in the exact color then use the hex, but if you're trying to describe the logo then use the Advanced Color or the Basic Color above.
