I could try to photograph it, but you’re better off looking at shots from the designers themselves, San Francisco-based studio Manual.
Our concept was to reinterpret the graphic language of Material Design and present it in a reductive and physical way. The kit communicates a set of intentions and design principles through abstract visual postcards. Special attention to print and production details bring the principles to life. Also contained in the kit is a functional sketchbook that provides different UI templates for interface designers to sketch ideas during the conference workshops.
The concepts of Google’s new design philosophy were also discussed at Form Function & Class 5* by Silas Reyes, whom we were fortunate to have over from Mountain View.
The interface is a welcome refresh on my mobile device, despite a couple of gripes I have (I miss KitKat’s multiple lock screens, LED notifications in silent mode must return, and the WiFi settings screen freezes a lot). The colors may be a little too much for most people, but it’s totally up my alley.
* Still deciding whether I should do a post-FFC entry.
