15 Awesome examples of Material Design done right

For now at least, it’s all about simplicity, with subtle but very natural and real visual clues providing distinctions to aid the eye’s navigation around the interface:textures, shading, contrasts, hues and so on. That’s right: material design trend is here to stay.
For those who think Google’s material design is a form of skeuomorphism (skeuomorphic design tries to reflect the concepts and materialism from everyday objects into the design ) answer is quite simple: material design does not recommend mimicking real-world interfaces.

Actually, it’s quite opposite. The Material in the name also refers to the real world, but it is less bound to visual cues and more to behaviours. Animation, transparency, boundaries, shadows are typical material design elements. Google’s “Paper and ink” moto presents minimalistic, lightweight design style.

Google’s official release of Material Design was a landmark moment for the trend. And the trend goes well beyond Android’s operating system or Google products. Whether it’s a graphic design mockup, a device interface, an app design or the simplest portfolio website, these 15 great examples show material design aficionados how it should be done…
