A great piece on the unification of Google’s design process. I disagree with the title, though. I define good design (in the context of software) as UIs and accompanying UXs that are intuitive and easy to grasp for as many users as possible. Save for maybe Google+, I’ve never noticed a significant amount of uproar regarding older Google UIs/UXs. They were pretty good; it’s not like Google didn’t “get” design before Material Design.
