April 2015 Material Design Spec Update
Here on the #materialdesign
team at Google, we’re always listening to community feedback and looking for ways to broaden and expand the specification to better fit the needs of designers everywhere. Today we’re publishing an update to google.com/design/spec
that draws on extensive conversations we’ve had with designers and developers over the past few months. The update includes 7 new sections, as well as refinements to content in existing sections.
• Data tables
: guidance on presenting data sets, particularly in desktop products
• Units and measurements
: a description of the different units used in material design, including guidance on using density-independent pixels (DPs)
• App structure
: suggestions for top-level navigation in your app
• Component sticker sheet for After Effects
to help streamline your motion design workflow
• Floating action buttons
now have their own section, with added guidance on behavior and transitions
• Updated guidance on Typography, Cards, Dialogs, Tabs and Scrolling.
