Does Google provide Material Design building blocks for designers (i.e. ready to use components as psd files)? I haven't found any in the specs.


Google doesn't provide ready made PSDs, no, but they provide better things.

Check out Google's Material Design Specifications which is packed with all sorts of guidelines of how to design in a material way, from the style and layout to usability and animations.

If you're looking for help on the coding/implementation side, you can check out Material Design Lite, a starter pack of sorts. Check out the blog post for more information. Google has also released some ready-made templates using MDL which can be found here.

For general information regarding Google's Material Design, check out their page for it.


I don't think google offers any "ready to use" PSDs but you can find some free PSD provided by other users here

If you need some inspiration in Material Design, google has a page for that https://www.google.com/design/


Here is a link to some resources for psd templates.

    After some extensive research I have not found my findings to be a valid GMD resource. I have posted on the Google Material design facebook page but received no answer. Hope that you find something that will be of use for your project. – Crispian Jul 16 '15 at 6:35
