An expressive and deeply personal illustration system created for Google's Material Design 3
As Google introduced the world to Material You, the expressive features of Material Design 3, they needed an illustration system that felt deeply personal. Working collaboratively with the Material team we leaned into the weird and wonderful to develop four styles that appeal to the humanity in all of us.
Our artists brought their unique voice to each design, embracing personality, imperfection and beauty. We delivered dozens of unique artworks and animations, and an asset system to allow for the creation of new images. With our system and guidelines Google can continue to create custom content to meet the evolving editorial needs of the Material team.
