Material Design Google

Olá pessoal, procurando novas formas de ter um layout para seus aplicativos Android mais agradável? Que tal utilizar os padrões do Google para isso?

Apresento a vocês  o Material Design:

Material design (codenamed quantum paper)[1] is a design language developed by Google and announced at the Google I/O conference on June 25, 2014. Expanding upon the “card” motifs first seen in Google Now, it is a design with increased use of grid-based layouts, responsive animations and transitions, padding, and depth effects such as lighting and shadows. Designer Matías Duarte explained that “unlike real paper, our digital material can expand and reform intelligently. Material has physical surfaces and edges. Seams and shadows provide meaning about what you can touch.”[2][3][4] Google states that their new design language is based on paper and ink.
