The Matter of Material Design

For a new project with a regional news org, I’m developing a custom content exchange and for wireframes and templating I decided to go with  Google’s Material Design. Reading through Google’s documentation on the hows and whys on Material Design has been a great exercise in seeing how to take shared ideas an apply them to a current project–especially their section on Navigation patterns in Material Design lets designers in on the secret to how Google designs and develops their web applications.
