We’re great at questioning design, but rarely question our science.
Trust in shaky numbers now outweighs a designer’s experience, intuition, and intelligence. Metrics influence design to the point where design becomes the long arm of the data, and intelligent design thinking is second guessed and de-prioritized.
Today, we’re celebrating the amazing work Google Play developers have been doing with #materialdesign and announcing the Material Design Showcase and Material Design Awards.
With the new Material Design Showcase, we’re highlighting 18 great uses of material design with users through a collection on Google Play:

Of those 18 apps, we’re recognizing 6 with a special award, which we handed out at Google I/O earlier today. Our new sizzle reel below sums up the spectacular work from the individuals and teams behind these apps.

Hello there, my Name is Robert Smertcov and since I can recall, I always felt different. I am not sure if I was born this way or I became like this because of various circumstances and tests that life put me through it. I personally sense it was a mixture of both and I am glad it did happened. I feel it’s like a blessing and a curse because I can understand and see what most people can’t, but since we live in an imperfect world, often it could be very unpleasant and sad to see it through my eyes. I would like to apologies in anticipation because I am reaching out to you while looking for a small (life changing for me) favor and I hope I can repay you as soon as possible. This is not me, I usually give first and I hope I won’t get penalized for trying to ask for once. I ask you to please have a little bit of faith in me, I understand what google does and most importantly, I understand people! What I would like to achieve it’s something that every single person on Earth would like to be part of it! It will be as big as the internet. Since it’s probably one of the best ideas, I would prefer to possibly have a meeting with somebody that has some kind of power at Google and not just pass my idea to their superior and get the credits for it. (I am positive that in less than 5 minutes they would love it). I am willing to give up the ownership of the idea, my plan is possibly to work on the project and help Google making it the next best thing. The idea it’s simple and straight forward and we have been using it since the creation of the humans. It was just never created on the internet. I appreciate for your time, your interest and I have faith in you, would you have faith in me?
