What does good design do for a business?

Thomas John Watson Jr, chairman and CEO of IBM, 1952 - 1971 once said:
Good Design is Good Business.
The cost of bad design for a business is more than just sales.

Good design builds credibility, trust, makes strong first impressions, builds customer relationships, and even helps in executing successful marketing campaigns. Ultimately, good design increases your company's value, boosts sales, and puts your business in a better financial situation, making your business more profitable.
