Interface Sketches: Challenge #4

Re-design Instagram. Sketch the re-design with enough detail that it would be understandable to another person. Why does this design work?


I began with a bit of research (aka scrolling through my insta feed and seeing how other designers had redesigned insta). The above photo shows all of my initial ideation and brainstorming for the sketches below. I aimed to eliminate a few redundancies and features that I personally don't use. I wanted to condense the written content into a single space, but keep the large, full width visuals. I integrated stories into the newsfeed itself and changed the add photo button so there would be an option to add a story or post from the single button. The overall look is the same, with a few less features and clutter within each page.
