Hello all.

I'd like to get peoples views on the importance of Function in product design, and whether people believe in function over form, or vice versa.


I've set up a poll in which I'd like to measure peoples opinions. Please also discuss on the topic itself, especially if you feel that perhaps these statements are too subjective to the product, or industry to be taken as gospel.


Remember, we define Function as what something does, or must do ( verb + noun, so no adjectives ), and Form can be described as shape, and aesthetics.



Does form follow Function?

- or -

Does function follow Form?

Let's go!
