With St. Patrick's Day quickly approaching, I decided to feature an incredible FarmVille St. Patty's Day themed farm. Paul Hempenstall, an Irishman who goes by paddy paul on the FarmVille Forums, crafted a marvelous St. Patrick's Day themed farm that is absolutely coated in the luck of the Irish. The farm design features a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, a four leaf clover made entirely out of trees, a dancing St. Patrick's pig, and a St. Patrick's Day fortress at the north.

However, despite all the amazing hay bale art, in the end Mr. Hempenstall is in a FarmVille player, and he has designed his farm in a way that makes sure it is still functional. He has a huge animal collection, lots of buildings, and space to plant crops. It seems Mr. Hempenstall has struck the perfect balance between function and form; isn't that what design is all about?
