Introduction Material Design Android
In this lesson Introduction Material Design Android we are gonna learn what is the material design and why we use it in our application. The Material design is a design language or a pattern designed specially for android by google.
Material is a Metaphor – Introduction Material Design Android
The Material Design is grounded in tactile reality, originally inspired by our study of our paper and ink, yet it opens our imagination. Based on this Design Language after mobile, google is introduce the same concept in the web UI/UX fields.
The concept behind this material design is nothing but give an experience to the user like a reality. A best example for the materialized web site our is the well known and the google product the GMAIL. It is the one which designed under this Material Design Design Language.
Surfaces are Intuitive and Natural
Surfaces and its edges provides visual cues that are grounded in our experience of reality. The use of familiar tactile attributes speaks to primal parts of our brains and helps us quickly understand affordances.
Dimensionality affords Interaction
The fundamentals of light, surface, and movement are key to conveying how objects are interact. Realistic lighting shows seams, divides space, and moving parts.
One Adaptive Design – Introduction Material Design Android
A single underlying system organizes interactions and spaces. Each device reflects a different view of the same underlying system. Each view is tailored to the size and interaction appropriate for that device. Colors, iconography, hierarchy and spatial relationships remains constant.
Bold and Intentional Content
The Bold design helps us to make a very clear and immersion clarity of our application. It delivers the exact focus on a component or element, and deliberate color choices, large scale typography and intentional white space designs.
Color Surface, and iconography emphasize actions
User action is the essence in the User Interface. The primary actions are the inflection points that transform the whole design. Their emphasis makes core functionality immediately apparent and provides waypoints for the user.
Users Initiate change
Changes in the interface derive their energy from user actions. Motion that cascades from touch respects and reinforces the user as the prime mover.
Animation is choreographed on a shared storage
All action takes place in a single environment. Objects are presented to the user without breaking the continuity of experience even as they transform and reorganize.
Motion Provides Meaning – Introduction Material Design Android
Motion is meaningful and appropriate, serving to focus attention and maintain continuity. Feedback is subtle yet clear. Transitions are efficient yet coherent.
Design is the art of considered creation. Our goal is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human 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.
And the in the above lesson you have some basic knowledge about the Material Design and its uses. We learn a lot more about in the upcoming future lessons.
