“This is Material Design” is another fantastic design piece created by San Francisco-based studio Manual.
“Material Design is a visual language recently rolled out across all of Google platforms and devices to provide a unified experience. In conceiving Material Design, Google took inspiration from the material world–paper, layering, space, and light—to create an interface that feels tangible and grounded in reality.
To celebrate the launch at the 2014 I/O Conference, Google’s UXA team challenged us to interpret and encapsulate the Material Design philosophy in a limited edition printed takeaway that was both inspiring and functional.
Celebrating the team’s original inspiration, we created a rich, tactile, and layered printed piece. Our concept was to reinterpret the graphic language of Material Design and present it in a reductive and physical way.”
