    Mr Duarte,

    Philosophically speaking, do you consider Material Design to be the future of interface design? I know that you've already started adding it to mobile, computer, and web apps, but do you think it's future-proof? When Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released, I thought it's the best-looking interface around. Now it feel dated, because it's not colourful. Aren't you afraid that users (and designers alike) will eventually become tired of bold colours and smooth animations? Then your idea of making digital interface more meaningful than they were before may become obsolete.

    Thank you for your work. I personally think that Material Design is the best thing that happened to interface in recent years.
