Style

Style helps digital elements coexist within a physical environment, creating delight for users while enhancing the usability of interactions. From the legibility of type, to the placement of sounds, to the scale and lighting of objects, attention to style can both refine and enrich an experience.

Guidelines

Color, light and materials

Designing content for mixed reality requires careful consideration of color, lighting, and materials for each of the visual assets used in your experience.

Spatial sound design

The more closely your app's sound behaves like it does in the real world, the more convincing and engaging your holograms will be.

Typography

Text is an important element for delivering information in your app experience. Just like typography on 2D screens, the goal is to be clear and readable.

Scale

A key to displaying content that looks realistic in holographic form is to mimic the visual statistics of the real world as closely as possible.
