Google has introduced Material Design, a new visual language that looks to synthesize the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science. It’s to stretch across Android, Chrome OS and Google’s web properties. Google’s Android apps will see these changes but expect it to be a unified mainframe that will work in a fluid manner across smartphone, tablet or desktop. More than just a visual refresh, early demos show new animations that really utilize the maximum amount of space available while also ensure the user experience is smooth. Improved typography, grids, and more vibrant color all look to drive a more consistent look for all of Google’s apps an services, which should make it easier for users to interact with them. A short demo can be seen in the video below and head to the dedicated page for Material Design to follow Google’s progress.
