Title: Material Design Vs Flat Design

Material Design Vs Flat Design
  • Introduction
  • Key Features of Material Based Design
  • Benefits Of Material Design
  • Flat Design
  • Key Benefits of Flat Designs

  • Googles material design is the buzzword among
    design and development professionals of today.
    The goal of material design is to improve the
    brand experiences of the consumers, taking them
    one step ahead of flat design.
  • Material design offers a combination of flat and
    3 dimensional which adds to the interactivity of
    the user experience.
  • One of core benefits of Googles material design
    is the clear cut design guidelines for designers.
  • There are various ways in which designers can use
    the material design philosophy
  • -Multiple elements can be stacked up for creating
    a unique design experience for the users
  • -Besides the layers, the designers can create a
    bold look for the users to get a pleasant overall

Key Features of Material Design
  • Movement and animation is an integral part of
    material design and this should be a part of real
    world situations
  • The type and color in material design should be
    bold whereas the visuals are developed using the
    usual design techniques
  • The fundamental feature of material design is
    that its as realistic as possible.

Material Design and Paper Based Design
  • The principles of paper based design are used in
    the concept of material design. Here are some of
    the key features
  • Paper can used for 2D as well as 3D designs while
    it can also be used for layered designs. Googles
    material design principle follows this philosophy
  • One can also use 2 pieces of paper placed on top
    of each other and add design to each.
  • Similarly floating actions and tool-bars are used
    like there are being added to a piece of paper.

Benefits of Material Design
  • Material design combines the benefits of flat
    design with layered and 3 dimensional designs,
    adding experience and interactivity of the user.
  • Material design comes with highly detailed set of
    design guidelines and principles that makes it
    simpler and faster to design, for the design
  • Material design provides a similar experience
    across devices.
  • The design form comes with a host of in-built
    features making the process of design much more
    simpler and designer-friendly.

Flat Design
  • Flat design has essentially evolved from
    Skeuomorphism. The concept basically means that
    things are shown the way they are in the real
    world. The challenge with this kind of design was
    that it was always constrained by digital
    usability. Flat design came in as an evolution
    because it does away with the 3 dimensional
    feature of design.
  • Flat design does focus on the appearance of the
    objects, but much lesser as compared to
    usability. Flat design enables web pages to load
    much faster and enhances their usability

Key Benefits of Flat Design
  • Flat design does away with unnecessary elements
    and improves the speed of web pages
  • Flatter elements ensure ease of usability and
    readability of the web page
  • Flat design also enables the designers to design
    the pages easily and at a faster pace.
  • Flat design helps in easy conversion to
