A new black and white Instagram is floating around -- but just images of the test designs for now. It looks like the photo sharing platform wants to embrace a cleaner look in order to let the images themselves stand out as they rightly should. Not to mention that some of the most successful Instagram accounts out there boast clean shots with a lot of white space, which this design accentuates.

In an attempt to modernize its look, the black and white Instagram design helps it stay at the forefront of social media platforms. It's surprising how slow it has been to evolve -- yet that also touches on the huge success of the company so far.
