From: Principles. Material is the metaphor – modern tech inspired by paper and ink. 1) Google published Material Design in Google. I/O 2) Material Design: Develop a single underlying system that allows for a unified experience. PDF | Material Design is a new and continuously evolving design language. [1]

It is also created keeping in mind that it should be universally adaptable and must be responsive to all screen sizes as well as shapes like Android Wear watch. Flat Design: Pros: The flat design embraces and works within the screen limits This design strategy works best to decrease the loading time as it streamlines designs and avoids unnecessarily animated or graphical elements It has a few skeuomorphic elements that help readers in speeding up progression across the content.

Eliminate all useless and unnecessary design selections, support simple and faster website design The simplified sites embodying flat design are endlessly adaptable and are highly easy to be made responsive.

Cons: The design strategy is limiting and keep you constrained to simple shapes, colors, and iconography When you use Flat Design it simply lets you create a very generic looking and featureless site.

Some apps or sites need complex visual cues for user guidance through the process. This is one of the biggest failing points of Flat Design. Also, another common complaint is the lack or drops shadows along with raised edges, making it difficult to differentiate clickable buttons from other static vector graphics There is a lot of ubiquity making it difficult to create some original-looking Flat apps or websites.

On a more related note, it has mid s aesthetics and you will need to redesign the site again quite frequently. Material Design Pros: Material Design offers a particular set of guidelines in a detailed manner.. If you wish to develop things for various platforms, it provides a unified experience across all devices that bring more user-friendliness and also help your branding.

If you are more into integrating animations, you definitely need to go with Material as it offers numerous built-in ones that would otherwise need to be done manually. Cons: Material Design is inextricably linked with Google. It is really difficult to distance yourself from it and to create an absolutely unique identity for your app or website.

You can take the help of Google guidelines for this. Not every system can pull off the desired frame rates. The animation can be hard for the batteries of mobile users Flat Design vs.

Material Design — Depth The way Apple and Google look at the interaction of devices and applications is really different. Both of them have different opinions about it. Google sees it in another way. It assumes that users must interact with the elements as if they are stacked on each other. The users must get the feeling of holding the screen in their hands.

Flat Design vs. Material Design — Navigation For the better user interface, navigation is a must-have element. This means organizing the structure of the app according to the tasks and contents that users like to see.

Material Design offers fewer navigation rules and offers a higher level of flexibility for designers. Google offers a number of components and an action button that easily reveal various options. On the other hand, the navigation system of Apple is easy to use and understand. Their concept revolves around having an app that has less than five features and forces designers to ponder over the functions of their app.

Thus when it comes down to UI features, Apple and Google like to be different in their approach and preferences. Material Design — Responsiveness Responsiveness is another must-have element of a great UI experience.

Material Design offers high responsiveness. This is similar to the real world pattern. Almost as equally important as the quality of the design is the consistency that Material Design provides. Especially with its recent split into Alphabet , the ability to keep design consistent across the brands will be paramount to the success of the new corporate organization.

Material Design is mobile-centric, and the fact that a company as large as Google is centering its entire design philosophy around the mobile experience adds weight to the idea that mobile will continue to take precedent as our preferred way of access the web.

Executive summary (TL;DR)

Android users will be the most affected by the influence of Material Design, as the principles in the language itself greatly affect the UX of the OS and mobile app design. However, as Material Design continues to spread throughout the Google ecosystem it will, however slightly, affect any and all users of Google products and services. For developers, Material Design provides new tools that will make it easier to build usable apps that also look good.

Outside of application development, professional web designers and hobbyists alike will also be able to use Material Design Lite to add the look and feel of Material Design to their websites. On November 3, the source code was made available before the official OTA updates were first sent out on November 12, for select devices. New design specs are added each month and can be viewed on the Material Design website. At this point, the majority of Google's core apps should have received a Material Design makeover.

To make the most out of Material Design, you'll want to start by reviewing the specification guide that Google has laid out for Material Design.

Google has put together some very specific rules and guidelines. Material elements can vary in their height and width X and Y , but they are always express a uniform thickness as 1dp density-independent pixels. While Material elements can grow and shift along their X and Y axes, but they can never pass through another Material element. Each element has its own level of elevation also measured in dp relative to the type of component it is and how it interacts with other elements in the design.

Google addresses the elevation rules and object hierarchy in its Material Design guide.

Material Design principles address elements like icons, text fields e. Available typography options can be seen in the provided Type Scale here.

By Conner Forrest in Software on September 5, , Here's a rundown in less than two minutes. This question is one that AR is uniquely equipped to solve. We made each floor decal unique; scanning one would tell users where they are in the Android Partner Walk, and enable us to point them to uncollected pins nearby.

These were people in business suits, roaming the show floor between meetings, engaged with a collection experience where they were willing to walk long distances to complete the challenge. We put a lot of care in developing the 21 fully-animated 3D scenes and were glad people enjoyed them. Be responsiveOne of our biggest worries was a user pointing their camera at the floor decal and it either 1 not triggering at all or 2 unresponsive for an unacceptable amount of time.

Anything over two seconds starts to make users question whether they have done something wrong or whether the app is buggy—both are poor user experiences.

Flat Design vs Material Design

Related to responsiveness, we also felt that these AR collection interactions should be short and sweet. We wanted the attendees to see a delightful Android, collect it, and quickly orient to the next booth to visit: When placed next to our office desks, they seemed huge, but when placed in the Fira Barcelona conference hall, they looked quite tiny. Lesson learned! Download it now on your ARCore-compatible device and play around with placing the animated AR pins anywhere you like.
