Simple vs simplistic

Have you ever said something was too simple?

Is there a chance that in that moment, what you actually meant was – it’s too simplistic?

Simple is the result of painstakingly refining something down to it’s essence. It comes after a lot of hard work.

Simplistic is producing something that doesn’t convey the essence of your work adequately. It is the symptom of half baked work.

Simple really is best. Work hard, keep it simple.
