We’ve been posting some of  the best quotes from our #SPAN15 London speakers all day (check twitter.com/googledesign!), but here are a few more of our favorites:
- “Prototyping shouldn't be a discrete phase but a part of the design process.” - Justin Belcher 
- “Privacy is the new luxury.” - Justin McGuirk
- “Advice to young designers: think more about the product and less about the design.” - Denise Wilton

Let the after-partying begin—replete with refreshing G&Ts and vibes from Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend. Stay tuned for updates on SPAN and many more conversations to come at design.google.com!

If at any point in your life Metroid meant anything to you, you need to see this.
I loved this so much I have to share again.

I will offer one tiny bit of feedback that I hope is taken in the vein of constructive criticism if this ever becomes anything else...

I loved how this film captured the zeitgeist of the 80s sci-fi environment in which the original Metroid and later Super Metroid were made. The sense of desolate beauty, the anxiety of isolation, the horror of the genuinely alien that was captured in films like Alien and Solaris.

However I felt like it was a slightly off note to have Samus be so fragile and disconcerted throughout. After all, the 80s were the era of the shockingly masculine and confidant woman. The era of not just Ellen Ripley, but Sara Connor and Pris and massive ass shoulder pads! Personally I wanted to see Samus deal with all the weirdness and... more »

OK, so this is really freakin' cool.

"The classic Nintendo franchise, Metroid, envisioned through the lens of 60s-70s science fiction cinema such as 2001, Alien, and Solaris: this was the concept for Rainfall’s most recent production. Instead of using a modern approach, a style was developed more in tune with the themes that inspired the first Metroid game in 1986: isolation, exploration, and the wonders of deep space."___If at any point in your life Metroid meant anything to you, you need to see this.

Personally I wanted to see Samus deal with all the weirdness and creepiness of exploding a derelict moon with nothing more than a short pause, a slight frown, and a shrug of determination as she proceeded to "chew bubblegum". Of course when she finally made contact with the Chozo... that's when we would should the vulnerability (read as 'human' not as 'feminine')...

Anyhow, enough random personal headcannon! This short film rocks and I'm totally impressed and wish them luck! Would recommend.

We invited Project No. 8 and Printed Matter, Inc. with Library of the Printed Web to curate shops for us at #SPAN15‬ NYC. Folks enjoyed beautifully appointed tables of books, objects, stationery, and accessories. For those who weren’t able to join us at the conference last week, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite offerings from both shops—all of which can be found online on their websites, or in person at any of their brick & mortar locations in NYC.

Whuffie as a tool of control.

• In addition to measuring your ability to pay, as in the United States, the scores serve as a measure of political compliance. Among the things that will hurt a citizen’s score are posting political opinions without prior permission, or posting information that the regime does not like, such as about the Tienanmen Square massacre that the government carried out to hold on to power, or the Shanghai stock market collapse.
• It will hurt your score not only if you do these things, but if any of your friends do them. Imagine the social pressure against disobedience or dissent that this will create.

Making the web great again! Let's make the Web as fast and furiously compelling as we all want it to be. Today, we announced the AMP Project, an open-source initiative to make web content "Instant Everywhere". This is the vision many of us have been striving to realize for the last several months. Huge thanks to +Dave Besbris, +Malte Ubl and so many others for helping get us this far. It's been a passionate determined effort by Google and three dozen publishers and technology companies from around the world. Now everyone can take part. Today, we reached the starting line. Let's make it happen! For more info go to ampproject.org. To see a live demo go to g.co/amp on your mobile phone and enter a query (e.g. Mars, Syria, etc).

It’s been almost a year since we hosted our inaugural Design Conference in San Francisco, CA. As a wide-angle examination of the intersection between design and technology, FORM (https://design.google.com/form-2014/) brought together design thinkers and practitioners to discuss what it means to have a contemporary practice today. A lot happened over the day and a half of panels, talks, workshops and networking, and nobody left without learning a little something about the latest designer fashion (https://goo.gl/aCSYQD) trends (https://goo.gl/tOLmHh). 

Join us on a tour down memory lane with some photos (https://goo.gl/niYDl2), illustrations (https://goo.gl/zVGWDe), and video (https://goo.gl/f6EZxu) from FORM 2014.

Updates on this year’s conference are imminent...Stay tuned!

“The promise of the early internet was that it would liberate us from our bodies, and all the oppressions associated with prejudice. We’d communicate soul to soul, and get to know each other as people, rather than judging each other based on gender or race.” But because the default, assumed identity was white and male, anyone who brought up their race or gender – or dared to complain about bias – was seen as disturbing that dream.

You don't complain down, only up.

I was reading a book which included the phrase "in these days of political correctness..." talking about no longer making jokes that denigrated people for their culture or for the color of their skin.

And I thought, "That's not actually anything to do with political correctness.  That's just treating other people with respect."

I started imagining a world in which we replaced the phrase "politically correct" wherever we could with "treating other people with respect" and it made me smile.

You should try it.  It's peculiarly enlightening.

I know what you're thinking now.  You're thinking "Oh my god, that's treating other people with respect gone mad!"

Through my close work with them in the recent past, I have some insights into how complicated (and in many cases, emotionally exhausting) it is to figure out how to best draw the lines in such areas. To call it difficult would be a vast understatement, but the folks at Google who work on this are incredibly dedicated to doing the right thing.

Thanks everybody for coming!

Last Wednesday, just before #io15, we hosted our annual happy hour for designers [1] at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco. Our new Roboto Mono typeface even made an appearance. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it; check out some of our favorite event photos below.

Here's a small extra improvement for Android M that I really appreciate!

New in the M developer preview: windowLightStatusBar. Flipping this on in your theme tells the system to use a dark foreground, useful for lighter colored status bars. Note the M preview seems to have a bug where notification icons remain white, while system status icons correctly change to semitransparent black. #materialdesign___Here's a small extra improvement for Android M that I really appreciate!

Today at #io15 the #materialdesign team gave a couple talks about lessons learned from the first year of #materialdesign. For those of you who missed the session, you can still get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of #materialdesign. Learn more about the philosophy behind the system as well as first-hand accounts from a few of the designers on the team.

Android Design Support Library: bringing material design to life
The Design library brings a number of important material design components to all Android 2.1 or higher devices (http://goo.gl/KZBhH2). You’ll find a navigation drawer view, a floating label TextInputLayout, a floating action button, snackbar, tabs, and a motion and scroll framework to tie them together.

You’ll be able to build your navigation drawer’s items using a menu resource file and connect a TabLayout with a ViewPager with just a single call to setupWithViewPager().

AppBarLayout lets you set scroll flags to control how views such as your Toolbar scroll on and off the screen or extend it farther with CollapsingToolbarLayout to resize title text size, pin views as the app bar collapses, and add parallax effects - again just a few lines of XML.

With components that match the material design spec out of the box and the tools you need to provide rich behavior between views via the new CoordinatorLayout, the Design library gives you the building blocks needed to build a modern, great looking Android app without building everything from scratch.

Congrats to all Material Design pioneers!

Announcing the Material Design Awards and Showcase

Today, we’re celebrating the amazing work Google Play developers have been doing with #materialdesign and announcing the Material Design Showcase and Material Design Awards.

With the new Material Design Showcase, we’re highlighting 18 great uses of material design with users through a collection on Google Play:

See the 18 showcase apps at g.co/materialshowcase

Of those 18 apps, we’re recognizing 6 with a special award, which we handed out at Google I/O earlier today. Our new sizzle reel below sums up the spectacular work from the individuals and teams behind these apps.
