According to Karim Rashid, “Every business should be completely concerned with beauty. It is, after all, a collective human need.” There is an important balance between functionality of a product and the aesthetics of a product. Often, as engineers we focus on the functionality and not on aesthetics and products become boxy and mundane. It is important to keep the “look” of products in mind when designing.
