Hello, I’m working on my new template called Slimply. Theme will be nice propose for creatives who are looking for minimalistic portfolio with their’s projects on the homepage.
But… When I did 70% of work I saw Garnish theme by Orman Clark and that worried me… I do not know what should I do. I don’t copy from other designers and Slimply is 100% unique template by me.
This is my upcoming theme: http://vasterad.com/slimply_theme/ (more subpages & features are coming also dark color version).
Tell me please guys what should I do. In my opinion projects on the homepage is similar to Garnish’s structure and I need opinion about that.

I clicked the link and I instantly thought Garnish. I didn’t even notice you mentioning that until I read your post after viewing the theme.
Its still a nice theme though.

same here, unfortunately if you submitted the first 100 comments are going to say you copied him and you will most likely get a DCMA … even though you didn’t mean to its just kind of how the marketplaces have gotten
OK here’s what I think
you have a front page message – garnish does not You used different fonts and colors you have more page templates that don’t look the same at all to Garnish
Just because you have a filterable front page portfolio based on a grid I doubt that could be called copying in all honesty – Orman certainly wasn’t the first to do this
What about big ass slider and 3 columns underneath – the #1 selling layout pattern on ThemeForest – it’s just a wireframe similarity and we all use the same wireframes.
Now saying that I believe that if you added another section under the home page portfolio that had a buyer benefit then it’s not the same at all.
Just my opinion based on what I see being uploaded and for sale actively on TF – I’m not a reviewer and I like your style and this template.
Ok, thanks guys for reply. I decided to make different site at all with a bit based on Slimply’s subpages. Cheers.
