If you’ve seen Instagram’s logo and you see how many people all over the world have been hooked, you would probably think that it’s all because of how the app revolutionized the photo-sharing industry.
And you know what, up to some point, that’s actually true.
But when you think about it, a huge part of Instagram’s success would also be because of how the app was presented to the world.
- The packaging.
- The branding.
And with that, ladies and gentlemen, comes its now-familiar, amazingly timeless type-based logo.
The scripted Instagram logo burst through the market in the midst of an all-out tech revolution, and seeing the way it was designed brought something that felt like a classic into the picture.
While everybody else was going for cleaner and more modern text, Instagram broke out of the mold and showed what a huge difference design really is when it comes to making a brand a household name.
So if you’re a designer or an artist who wants to explore and improve their skills in type-based wordmarks, there is no better way to learn than by being taught by the master himself.
