The leaf appears to polarise viewers the most, and I must admit it was the toughest element to work in. Before submitting I had tried leaving it as shirt colour, but it ended up looking to me like a hole had been punched through the design. This was not the intention. The idea was that it could read as sky and leaf, so it was important to me to play up the ambiguity. No design is going to be all things to everyone (except The Binge), so I'm pleased there is still a loyal audience for this one.
Thanks again to everone for giving me such a good run with these last three designs.
Wow, thanks for your response! It's great to hear a bit about your creative process. Now that you mention it, I can see how it'd look like a hole. Hm.
Well, when it comes down to it, there are just too many amazing elements to this shirt to not vote, and I really love this take on the four reasons, so vote I shall. Hope to see this Friday =3
