Before getting into Material Design in details, let’s see what “polymer paper elements” is. The canonical implementation of Material Designs for Web application user interfaces is called polymer paper elements. It consists of a Polymer library, the so-called ‘paper elements collection’ and a shim that provides a web components API for browsers that do not implement the typical natively.

Let’s Get Started with Material Designs!

Material Designs is big chunks of colors, where every element can be assigned a single unique code for access. The awesome feature allowed in Material Design is “We can access any color by referring a color code for our requirements” which facilitate a developer to design more effectively and make a boost to application pleasures.

Material Design Developers will mostly focus on three main goals to attract people are Hypnotize, Simplify and Amaze with User Experience.

Futures of Material Design:

  • Material Design makes further liberal use of grid-based layouts
  • Responsive animations and transitions

  • In-Depth possessions such as illumination and shades
  • Speedup applications color access
  • Add more Glory to apps
