another thing about design
(i need to remember)
it isnt how complex or expensive it was to manufacture, it isnt who or how its made,
its how its makes people feel or how little it gets in the way. how expensive, or how its made is determined after you have your heart set on a beautiful form.
how much effort and thought that goes into a product does help make it worth more to the user but chances are, most viewers are never informed of that. all they know is what they see so why invest effort into something that isnt visible at all? exceptions being effort is the whole point of the design.

maximum effect per minimum effort. but look for the maximum effect before thinking about the minimum effort.
