Instagram Icon Concept

Since I've started redesigning icons with material design in mind I knew that this is one that I must do! Since the app's release in 2010 the icon (or the logo) has remained unchanged and a lot of designers have given their own take on the icon. 

I don't personally use Instagram but its icon is one part that I've always had mixed feelings towards, I like the idea of a retro camera but I never understood the idea of it being a square. Therefore, I went for a complete redesign, using Google Camera and real retro cameras as inspiration, while keeping the original theme.

Original vs My concept
