Material Design

A visual interface design for Google applications. First deployed in a Google+ app update in 2014, Material Design uses a paper metaphor with rules for the design, location, movement, transformation, transition and animation of objects on screen. There are guidelines for displaying date, time, navigation elements and error messages, as well as how to load images, scroll and swipe.
