Even before the Google Design team released the Material Design guidelines I was salivating to update Acorn's Android app. The bold splashes of color, thoughtful animations and an overall experience based in reality is a direction I've been waiting for Google to take for a while.
I have to say, the most fun part about designing for Material Design is the focus I get to put towards fun and helpful animations. I've been mocking up motion designs in Keynote, what the Google Design team does, instead of After Effects. Animating in Keynote... something I thought I'd never write.
I'm excited just thinking about what Material Design will bring in 2015.
