I prefer working as part of a team of people whose input can include market research results, performance and engineering data, manufacturing constraints and packaging requirements where the team is in constant communication during every step of the development process.
I have found, however, that the appearance of a product is more successful when it is the expression of an individual designer or, at most, a very small group of designers.
