I've always wondered why Instagram never designed an interface using the colors, textures and overall style of their awesome icon. I wanted to create something that not only matched the icon's style, but that did what the icon does, which is give the app character and personality.
Design/shot notes: The bottom bar buttons select states correspond to the 4 Instagram colors. Also, the like and comment buttons would not be pink/blue by default, instead only if you had liked the photo or were actively engaged in commenting on it.
Let me know what you think, I'd love some feedback!

great tab bar and color choices. Congratulations. Does first tab (in pink) symbolise "stream" or??
@Şükrü Yıldızel, stream, yup!
amazing idea :D
They won't ever design something like this, because it takes too much attention away from the photography. Too many colours, textures, 3D effects, draws your eyes away from the photography. In saying that, nice design mate, looks killer!
This is brilliant!
I love the camera lens button.
Agree with Zane. This brings in a whole level of visual noise and complexity that I think would deteriorate the overall experience and put to much emphasis on the UI.
This is amazing!
Love the idea and design wise it's really nice n polished. Isn't it weird though that you'd be tapping on a camera lens instead of the 'control' for the camera?

Also, the perspective of the instagram logo is way off :) You should either see bottom or top, never both..
@Zane David & @Anthony Lane - I guess I agree to an extent. My thinking was that creating a more warm, personal environment would actually make users want to use the app more or stay in the app longer. I just feel like the current design is so cold and generic. Overall, thanks for the feedback! :)
@Yummygum - Thanks. I wanted to do something slightly different to make the camera button stand out more, rather than using just another flat glyph. I also just wanted to see how well I could even create something like that, never really done anything like it before. Maybe I was too attached.. :)
@Anders Drage - Honestly, I was following the "perspective" of the little "Insta" on the icon, which shows the top and the bottom. I kinda don't mind it. :) Thanks for pointing it out though!
