    Hello Matias,

    Thank you very much for reaching out to everyone who wants to know more about your creations. I personally love your work and I believe you brought Android up to speed with the competition, and now it has surpassed the rest in many aspects thanks to the latest design implementations. These are my questions for you:

    • What do you think was the hardest part about working around the graphical limitations of low-end specifications when designing the highly-animated Material Design?

    • What originally made you pursue the idea of Material Design further, and how different was the original design language from what we see on our phones now?

    • Do you see yourself revamping or scratching Material Design any time soon, or do you think this one will stick for a while?

    • Will we ever see darker themes adopted in Google's vision of Material Design? Given the popularity of dark or black themes for night time or AMOLED efficiency, how do you think the lack of these options affected Material Design and how can Google address this?

    -Do you have any advice for making Material Design fit within the brand of a cross-platform service?

    Thanks again for answering our questions and providing us with amazing eye-candy!
