Material Design is a design language that was introduced by Google in 2014. It can be applied to all aspects of design, including web and app interfaces. Material Design makes use of certain distinctive features such as:
– Cards – A type of layout that consists of a stack where items are displayed on top or next to each other according to their importance
– Animation – The change from one visual state (transition) into another over time
– Depth effects – Creating the illusion that there is distance between layers
– Typography – Using fonts and text size for emphasis
Material Design is Google’s interface for all of their products. Material Design, not the elements in Material, are what make up the definition of a material design product. It is a set of rules with how an app should look and act. It tells people what the fonts are, colors, animations, shadows, and more.
