The Instagram logo is interesting and people kind of got an idea about it. The logo changed a lot from the day of its launch till today. Below you will get an understanding of the logo.
In the first year, the logo was a polaroid camera in silver color with a rainbow lining in the center of the camera. The camera is in a curved square with dark grey color.

It just had two lenses, a rainbow lining on the top left corner and right beneath was written ‘Inst’. This is a Bell & Howell camera from the 1950s and was now designed by Cole Rise.
The logo now has a 3D look. The brown part of the camera shows a leather texture and the logo overall gives a crisp look. The lenses have a more noticeable and visible shadow. The rainbow is still there with ‘Insta’.
