ThemeIsle’s Newest Creation Boasting Material Design and One-Page Functionality

Material Design is a popular design trend when it comes to WordPress websites.  Developed by Google, Material Design is a visual interface that avoids the limitations of skeumorphism and boasts an extension of flat design, complete with an improved user flow and experience.

Because of this, it is no wonder why website owners seek to integrate this stunning flat design straight into their websites.  It looks great, provides a great user-experience, makes for speedier page loading, cleaner code, and adapts your design and functionality seamlessly for visitors on all device types and sizes.
