I'm John Schlemmer,
Motion Lead at Google.
I lead a team of motion designers at Google in Mountain View, California.
I direct cross-platform animation efforts in Google apps from within the Material Design team
while defining, authoring, speaking and advocating the industry standards for animation in UI.

Material Design lives in a world that’s a lot like ours – one that’s responsive, natural, aware, and intentional.
