Material Design is a design specification

opinion mine

Create a visual language that synthesizes classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science.

Develop a single underlying system that allows for a unified experience across platforms and device sizes. Mobile precepts are fundamental, but touch, voice, mouse, and keyboard are all first-class input methods.

Content extends from edge to edge. It never adds thickness.

Material can be stacked. Shadows define which objects are on top, and which are on the bottom.

Unlike the physical world, material can change shape.

Material can split and heal.

Material can be created or destroyed anywhere and at any time.
