What is Material design can be confirmed from the following PDF file.
Material design is based on unified theory using reasonable margins and movement. Inspired by the research "going up with imagination with paper and ink" that Google Design has done, it creates Material (substance) as "touching reality" on the screen.
By creating the "face" of the substance, the user is made to recognize intuitively and naturally that "in front of the eyes" is touched.
Light, surface, movement tells the user that "objects interact with each other". Also, realistic light makes it easy to understand that seams and spaces are separated, and where moving is where.
At the root of the design is interaction and margin. Even though it is a system of the same design, it looks different if the terminal is different, but colors and sizes etc are displayed properly for each device.
Bold text is used for content, and hierarchy and concentration points are given to the screen. Also considering the choice of color, it is clarifying the screen clearly and clarifying what to concentrate on by enlarging the screen from end to end, enlarging typography and dare to leave a margin .
Experience designUser action is indispensable. Material design's color and surface / illustration method emphasizes "action".
With the changed interface as the driving force of the user, the screen will start to flow as if touching.
Animation is assigned to each scene, and it is designed so that users can feel the relevance of objects.
Every movement has a meaning and it has become a mechanism to call attention while leaving relevance.
