At Google I/O, Google announced a new design language called ‘Material design’ that will span across devices. Even though it follows lots of Microsoft’s Modern design language, there is one main difference. There is a depth to UI elements in Google’s ‘Material Design’ and developers can now specify the Z axis for their UI elements for their apps.
Design is the art of considered creation. Our goal is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human needs. As those needs evolve, so too must our designs, practices, and philosophies. We challenged ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science.
A material metaphor is the unifying theory of a rationalized space and a system of motion. Our material is grounded in tactile reality, inspired by our study of paper and ink, yet open to imagination and magic. This is material design.
