In this post we are going to create a dynamic style-sheet that can be altered to fit any web application project while keeping inline with Material standards. This project is a great way to familiarize yourself with Material design while creating a style-sheet that can be recycled over and over again to create unique looking designs by just changing a few lines of code.
In this post we will look at some of the highlights of the Google Material Design language and discuss the reason so many designers are adopting this new revolutionary design language.
Imagine you get into a car start the engine, touch the acceleration and go from 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye. You then take the wheel to turn right and instead of a smooth turn the car takes an immediate 90 degree turn.
This is how interface design feels without smooth transitions. It works, but it does not feel natural to the user. Animations can give your design the illusion of depth and lifelike motion, creating a more 3D space and giving the user the feeling of being inside the design.
Given the wide variance in implementation and guaranteed support, CSS filters (and their cousins) are still a ways from being advisable for any key functionality of a site.

When you consider that over the past 5 years mobile devices have risen from 0.9% to over 15% of all internet traffic, it’s become increasingly important to make sure that there is at least a basic level of support for mobile users in anything you build. While there are new tools and technologies popping up daily to help make that easier, there are still an incredible number of challenges involved.
So, it’s worth noting that there are some really fascinating differences between the behaviors of outline and border, especially when transparency is involved.

Today’s sites are infinitely more complex and I wonder how many pages could be filled writing a book that covers all aspects of modern web design and development – probably a few more than 350. In fact, we would need to add several new chapters – UX, SEO, HTML5, CSS3, frameworks, jQuery, CMS’s, browser compatibility and resets, grid systems, mobile/iPad/responsive design, and on and on!
