This great looking Google Maps-driven bakery site was making the Twitter rounds today. Give it several minutes to load but its an extremely interesting idea. Not sure I’ve seen a site powered by Google Maps before. Cute illustration and animations too.∞
Along with Android 12, Google debuted their new design language Material You this week at their annual I/O conference. They are going extremely heavy on dynamic colors and on end user personalization of the user interface and the results are pretty striking.
It certainly is different.
While my first impression is not exactly positive, I’ll reserve final judgement until more details are out and it is actually on phones. It is good to see Google trying something interesting and new, and it’ll be interesting if they pull back from the monochrome app icons or anything else before the final release.
