It's possible to reshuffle the design with every added feature, but it's inefficient, takes up a lot of time, and occupies your thoughts with individual elements.

A better alternative is to refactor once the strain of your current design becomes apparent, as then you get to look at everything at once, giving you a lot better picture of where things should go.

Of course, if new features are a common occurrence it's a good idea to design for extensibility, but even then it won't get rid of the need for regularly taking a step back and looking at the big picture.
