Instagram Rolls Out New Website Redesign Focused on Minimalism


On the heels of Flickr’s major redesign, Instagram has launched a new look of its own. The photo-sharing social network has revamped its website, replacing its old style with one that’s simple and sparse.

For the desktop version of the site, the rotating header section featuring a selection of photos is gone. Instead, you’ll find a simple bio header followed by a neat display of photos. Profile pages now feature three larger photos per row instead of five smaller ones.


Everything is cleaner and flatter now, with many of the textures and colors replaced with simple lines and white space.


Here’s what the previous design looked like for comparison:


If you don’t see the redesign for your account yet, just sit tight, and it should be rolled out to you by week’s end.
