"Can Good Design Also Be Ugly?"

Interesting post on 37signals’ Signal vs. Noise blog on “Why the Drudge Report is one of the best designed sites on the web.”

“To clarify,” the post’s author writes, “my definition of design goes beyond aesthetic qualities and into areas of maintenance, cost, profitability, speed, and purpose. However, I still think that the Drudge Report is an aesthetic masterpiece even though I also consider it ugly.”

He makes a good case. What do you think?
