The Real Purpose of Product Design: Function Over Form

Product design is not about how a product looks. But it is about how a product *works*.

As a product designer, it’s easy to get caught up in the aesthetics of a product – the colors, the shapes, the materials. But true product design is so much more than that.

It’s like that super stylish pair of shoes that give you blisters after just one wear. Or that fancy kitchen gadget that breaks after one use. Sure, they might look good, but they’re not serving their intended purpose.

That’s why, as product designers, it’s important to remember that form should always follow function. A product’s primary goal should be to solve a problem or meet a need, not just to look pretty.

It’s about understanding the needs and pain points of the user and finding solutions that not only look good, but also work effectively and efficiently.

It’s about crafting experiences that are intuitive and easy to use. It’s about considering the entire lifecycle of a product and ensuring that it is sustainable and durable.

So next time you see a product that looks great, take a moment to consider all the design decisions that went into making it not just visually appealing, but functional and valuable as well.

Remember, it’s not just about how a product looks, it’s about how it works.
