If you are building a mobile website or working on responsive web design then Material Design is the perfect framework to use given that it enables designers to create digital material that can expand and reform intelligently, using seams and shadows to provide meaning about what you can touch.
Google is now expanding the original Material Design site introducing a bold new visual identity to the first initiative, inspired by the principles of print-based design with an emphasis on user actions and motion.
While navigating their new site and reading their design guidelines you will learn by constructing everything in a 3D environment containing light, material and cast shadows, with its own rules of how you can position elements and what they can do.
To go straight to the point, Gallery is a tool that aims to simplify design collaboration, enabling teams to organize their design workflow in one place so that everyone has a clear view of what's going on, and to easily share and get feedback on everything from visual design to interactive prototypes.
Stage is another new feature that helps you build dynamic interfaces with interactive motion. It is created by the teams behind Pixate and Form, it promises to change the way you build interactive experiences, with a more dynamic, intentional, and systematic workflow for crafting digital experiences.
Gallery and Stage are currently in early access and you can request an invite here
Another new tool called Remixer enables you to share design values and make live refinements during the development process with a set of cross-platforms libraries and protocols. You will be able to adjust everything from colours to animation timing on IOS, Android and web interfaces, and rolling out tweaks across multiple devices.
