TBH, I don’t think that many designs here are over complicated and I think you’re trying a bit too hard to be simple with this. Simplicity is nice, but not to the point of two rectangles IMO. Yes, you can say they printed Modern Style by Brilliancy, but I don’t think DBH is going to print practically the same shirt again.

Hi Intrepid,
Thanks for dropping by.
I understand your point of view. It is not going to be everybodies cup of tea as with everything, but a lot of people don’t like fancy designs. Some people just like nice colours, showcased in a beautiful way and on a high quality shirt. In my opinion it looks really modern and I personally love it. It’s not just 2 rectangles. I have spent a long time contemplating the colours, positioning and overall design of the shirt. I have seen shirts sell out which just have a plain black circle in the middle. It all depends who the shirt is aimed at. I think this design is really fashionable and would go great with a scarf and some darker jeans.
Cheers, Ben

Yes, nothing will ever be to everybody’s liking; Everybody has different standards about what is too complicated or overly simple. However, I maintain that you’re trying too hard to be simple. If you spent as much thought, time, and effort to make a very simple design, its no longer simple, it is complicated. A simple shirt would be something you just did quickly and it just happened to look nice. You set out to make a simple shirt, you made it your goal. This may sound really ridiculous, but you overcomplicated the idea of simplicity.

I think that simple designs can be nice, but I maintain that when its just two rectangles it not. Take into example, this shirt:
Its simple and effective. I think it could have been developed more, which I stated in my comment, but that’s all irrelevant. My point is that a simple shirt can be nice, but when you try so hard to be simple, its not simple anymore.
