This article sought to correlate creativity in form and function attributes with successful products of consumer goods companies. For this purpose, it analyzed 20 products from a Brazilian company. The products were chosen at random from a list of products that were in the market between three to seven years. This period was reported by the company as indicative of market success for the products it develops. The measure of success was appointed directly by the marketing department of the study company. Then, a group of 15 judges evaluated creativity in form and function attributes through a Likert scale for the 20 selected products. The results obtained by means of data collection showed evidence of correlation between creativity and form and function attributes with earnings success.
