    Hi Matias.

    Do you feel Material works (or can work) as successfully on desktop as it does on mobile and touch devices?

    And how important was that distinction when developing the language?

      Not yet. We can do a lot better both with our apps that use material on desktop, and with formalizing good rules around desktop application. For example we know we need to do a better job of providing patterns for greater information and control density.

      That’s something else that we’re going to keep doing with Material - evolving and changing the system itself to make it better and more universal.

        Exactly what I have been struggling with when trying to use material design principles in projects where there's loads of data. I would be very curious what a team of designers at Google would make of an application like Google Analytics.

        What advice would you give when it comes to designing these types of interfaces?
