Cracking Complexity in Material Design

In an ever-evolving field, it would be appropriate to presume that the next best thing is always around the corner. This notion of continuous change although a natural herald of progress is sometimes taken for granted by some seasoned developers. In other words, change will happen, whether they want it to or not, or whether they are ready to accept it. In contrast, a newcomer to the field, at first, might be excused for not abiding by the conventions agreed upon in the immediate future following their introduction to the same, as they ought to bolster their knowledge with information already explored by their more experienced peers. At some point, though they too are expected to attain the competence and capacity to keep track of the numerous innovations as well as provide value in the form of their contributions. As the process of catching up is rather laborious and perhaps even stressful the goal of this paper is to attempt to demystify a topic that often gets deferred by topics that are considered to be of seemingly greater importance. No matter by which metrics one might characterize the state of their knowledge, the time comes when even the most loathed topics have to be explored. User Experience and User Interface Design fall under those topics some would rather do later than sooner as they view themselves as developers, not as designers. The paper will demonstrate that they are capable of being both.
