Digital Innovation by Design
Bring together people from various domains to create innovative, attractive and marketable digital products.
Products that people love.
People are creative by nature. If you consider this in your project, you can create something really new. But to make your product work in everyday life and be loved by your customers, design, engineering and marketing must be carefully balanced right from the beginning of the project.
Explore the limits.
As long as you only move within your usual boundaries, nothing new and fantastic will be created. Explore the limits, combine things in new ways and expand your range of possible solutions. You will be amazed at what is possible.
Today Internet and Web are a given for us. But not so long ago these two inventions have fundamentally changed our society: From a star to a network topology. Today one would say that they were both highly disruptive.
On the Internet, information can be quickly sent from and to any location. Each node on the Internet is both a sender and a receiver. And each node can exchange information with any other node. And all this in a decentralized manner, i.e. without any central switching point.
In the times before the Internet telephone companies established all connections in large switchboards. And radio and television stations (which were initially mainly state-owned) broadcasted their programs from a central studio.
There was only a relatively small range of programs that had to satisfy a wide audience. The transmissions themselves were broadcasted once, at a predetermined time. Anyone who wanted to listen to the news had to sit in front of their device at 8 pm. And of course listeners and viewers could not make any likes or comments and left hardly any data traces. They were anonymous and the communication only happened in one direction.
In science and research, it was difficult to exchange information over longer distances before the arrival of the Internet. With the Internet and the invention of email and discussion groups based on it, it was suddenly possible to form worldwide communities. Experts in a specific field were now enabled to exchange information quickly and continuously.
But it took about 20 years from the invention of the Internet between 1950-1970 until the Internet became usable for everyone. Hardware was expensive, networks slow and expensive, and the many different Internet applications were complicated to use.
This changed with the invention of the Web (World Wide Web) in the early 1990s. With the Web — consisting of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) — the Internet suddenly became very user-friendly. Hyperlinks made it easy to link, navigate, search and rank the web documents. In 2019, the openly accessible Web contains more than 5 billion pages (source: worldwidewebsize.com).

Speeds up development
We did most of the heavy lifting for you to provide a default stylings that incorporate our custom components. Additionally, we refined animations and transitions to provide a smoother experience for developers.
User Experience Focused
By utilizing elements and principles of Material Design, we were able to create a framework that incorporates components and animations that provide more feedback to users. Additionally, a single underlying responsive system across all platforms allow for a more unified user experience.
Easy to work with
We have provided detailed documentation as well as specific code examples to help new users get started. We are also always open to feedback and can answer any questions a user may have about Materialize.
