It’s easy to get up and running with Material Design for WordPress:

Install Material Theme & examples

The theme applies Material Design principles and Material Theming to your site, so you can customize its style. Example layouts include pages for home, about, projects, blog, and contact.

Customize your Theme

Set up and preview your global theme styles within the customizer. Choose colors, typography, shapes, and icons to express your unique style.

Build with Material Blocks

Add Material Components like buttons and cards, and create layouts for things like image-heavy pages or styled contact forms. Customize the look of your blocks by adjusting global theme styles, or setting the style of a single component in the block editor.

Apply your Theme

Implement your colors, shapes, and typography for built-in WordPress elements like your site’s header and footer.

BEWARE - This plugin starts with a simple on/off panel that when selected on (default), adds example pages and posts, text and graphics to a site along with a very basic theme. If you already have a site theme with content, this will replace it. It made a pretty fair mess of my established site. Better to learn material design and apply it yourself. This plugin is way too basic for theme design. Definitely NOT for use on an established web site.
