Design News: Instagram redesign thoughts & critique | CharliMarieTV

My thoughts on the new Instagram app icon and UI design. Please remember to subscribe

Every time an app people love changes their icon, people freak out a little bit, and the new design is generally hated at first. In this video let’s calmly and objectively review the design changes and give them a bit of a critique! What do you think of the new icon? Love it? Hate it? Don’t care? Share your thoughts below!

See the video Instagram made announcing the change:

Follow my friend Lizzie who w=very kindly took screencaps of the old app for me!



My videos no longer have pre-roll ads because I think ads are annoying. That means you don’t have to sit through ads, and it also means I don’t earn anything from the content I put on YouTube. If you want to support me and my channel the best thing you can do is order something from my online store! I make t-shirts and printed products and you’re bound to find something you like 🙂
