I'm not here to take a dump on the hard working web designers who brought their ideas to life because there are good things, and things that need just a smidgen of improvement. One day in November 2020, I opened my LinkedIn to see this:
Letterboxd is a personal database to keep track of what movies you've watched, want to watch, and their ratings 🎥 Now, we're looking at my own data. Everything goes from 2016 - 2020, even though some movies are dated for the years they were released. I am keeping the date watched and the year released in the data. I've hidden the Letterboxd URLs to the specific movie pages - It's not necessary - and my own username is not shown. Spoiler alert: There are movies that are highly acclaimed that...I do not like!

With its sleek and minimalist design packaging, it's easy to spot on a busy shelf. This is not the first time I've bought G&G items, but it is the first time I thought "What makes me go to this brand?" Often times, the G&G item is less expensive by a few cents. Target's brand (at least on the food front) have built enough goodwill with me for me to take the chance. Not every item is a winner - some I still prefer a different, more established brand.
