The material design printed kits were a hit at #io14—over a thousand attendees dropped by the Design Sandbox to pick up their copy of the limited edition kit. A lot of care and craftsmanship went into the design and production of these kits; many thanks to the folks at Manual (manualcreative.com) for helping us put them together. For a quick look behind the curtains of the production process, take a look at the photo album below!

- Is there a bug/issue tracker, or feedback submission area for the Material Design spec? Great work overall, but I found quite a high-level contradiction there. (Or perhaps it's not a contradiction, but a pair of descriptions sufficiently ambiguous and confusion to appear contradictory.) Thanks!Jul 2, 2014

- I know it's still "a preview."
But it seems to explicitly contradict itself regarding when (and even whether) tabs should be used for top-level navigation in an app.
Either the following two portions explicitly contradict one another, or they're sufficiently ambiguous to lead dimwitted outside readers like me to confusion.
"TOP-LEVEL VIEW STRATEGIES" section at URL below, specifically says for navigation between primary, top-level app views, "use tabs if...' [certain conditions are true]:
"When to use" section at URL below...
"Although tabbed content may be navigational in nature (e.g., map route options that change a map view, search results leading to other sites), tabs are not themselves used for navigation."
[note the screenshot associated with that paragraph, marked "Don't," which strongly reinforces the contradiction of the recommendation in Portion 1]:
Thanks!Jul 12, 2014
