Instagram Is Testing a New Black-And-White Design 

This looks so dumb.
This looks so dumb.

Casey Newton, for The Verge, with a sampling of quotes that make me think Newton doesn’t actually appreciate good design:

So fresh and so clean

Really? Fresh and clean? How about “white and stupid?” Yeah, that’s more like it.

Of all the major social platforms, Instagram has evolved the slowest.

Yeah, 'tis better to innovate terribly than to never innovate at all, right?

The result is a design that feels more modern, but also perhaps less distinctive than the current version of the app.


I can’t wait to read what Eli Schiff has to say about this.
