Design vs Functionality

A couple of years ago there was a dispute between me and my friend when we were starting to develop our service of questions and answers – Grabler.ru. The subject of controversy could be formulated as follows: What’s more important in a web project – design or functionality.

Hi believed that if we built a website with great functionality – it wouldn’t matter much what design we had. Users would enjoy our services not paying any attention to the design.

But I always thought, and now I’m convinced of the fact that design is the most important part of the whole project. Design creates the impression right away after a user opens a website. To get an impression of website functionality it may take a whole bunch of time, especially on complicated portals like LinkedIn or Facebook. But to get an impression of design it only takes seconds.
