Designing Instagram’s Logo
You may have noticed in last week’s update that the Instagram logo got a fresh look. Mackey Saturday (@saturday), a designer and typographer from Denver, Colorado, is the creative force behind Instagram’s logo.
An avid Instagrammer, Mackey committed himself to creating a logo that would resonate with the community: “My hope is that the new design maintains all the excitement and delight that Instagram has had from the beginning, but with an even more polished finish,” Mackey says.
Mackey spent countless hours collaborating with our team until the final design emerged. “I want people to know and see that every last detail is always being considered and that this is a place where they can confidently create and share new memories for years to come. I’m honored to have a part in helping further those moments and hope that this piece becomes synonymous with fond memories, joyful emotions, and thrilling aspirations for the community.”

Sometimes, you just need a creative outlet. In the form of grabbing a friend, who just happens to be an amazing portrait photographer, and do a fun, totally random shoot. With a bunch of bikinis, and some chopsticks, and interesting looks from passers by on the beach.
The photographer? Tracy Wright Corvo. Let’s all give her a standing bikini addict ovation. Because these pics totally make me laugh, and she’s got a gift for capturing personality.
