Design news and inspiration.

Plaid is a showcase of material design that we hope you will keep installed. It pulls in news & inspiration from Designer News, Dribbble & Product Hunt. It demonstrates the use of material principles to create tactile, bold, understandable UIs.

Install on Google Play (Beta Testing)



Plaid is a UI sample and seeks to demonstrate how to implement material design. To make this as clear as possible it explicitly does not attempt to:

  • Provide opinionated architecture/testing advice; it utilizes vanilla Android components. For advice on this, I'd recommend Blueprints.
  • Support pre-Lollipop devices. Doing so is entirely possible, but complicates things. For advice on doing this, see this fork.
