Material Design Won't Rescue Bad UX

A presentation at All Things Open 2018 in in Raleigh, NC, USA by Angel Banks

Design languages, like Material Design, are a great way to ensure consistency and best practices in your UI. But adhering to a design language won’t result in a good experience if you violate the heuristics of good design, build an experience that doesn’t match the user’s mental model, or complement the work users need to do.

In this session, we’ll discuss best practices for using design languages and the common UX mistakes developers make and how to avoid them.
