Material Design Frameworks

What is Material Design?

It is a set of design guidelines by Google i.e. similar to what other platforms like Apple and Windows releases for their app developers. The sole purpose of setting such guideline is that it makes usability experience uniform across various categories of applications. However, it’s not imperative for developers and UI designers to include material design to their development as in many cases, it all depends on the class of  application to be designed.

Besides, material design overshadows device type, unlike proposed guidelines of iOS. The primary objective of such guidelines are:-

  • To expand a single fundamental system that allows for an unified experience.
  • To maintain the integrity across multiple platforms and device size
