The Evolution of Material Design’s Text Fields - Google Design - Medium

A text field is one of the most common ways for users to enter and edit text in forms and dialogs. However, some users didn’t know that they could interact with and click on the text field. It looked like an empty box. The line affordance under the old text fields was not clear to some users. The line was confused with a divider. The label and input were confused with body text, especially in dense compositions.

Concludes that text boxes should have a fill, not just a bottom line.

Favorite tweet:

I've had many a battle with design teams over underline/float-label only form fields. "But Google does it!" is the most common response.

So it's great to see Google publish some of their research that led them towards a more traditional form field design https://t.co/ysDiFf8gYA
