Ignoring design in MVPs is design itself.
Sometimes when you choose not to focus on aesthetics but rather functionality, you are essentially designing out the aesthetics from the process of building an MVP. The goal is to reach functionality quickly and cheaply. If it’s functional, it doesn’t need much design at all.
It’s very importantt to become fast in building functionality, and once that ball is rolling, you can start to bring aesthetics back into play.
When you barely have any resources in the early days, your highest ROI comes from building functionality, not aesthetics.
