Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter

Every 20 years or so Jupiter and Saturn nestle next to each other in the night sky. 2020 is full of surprises but Saturn and Jupiter being the closest to each other since 1623 is one I did not anticipate. I'll take seeing several of Jupiter's moons while low in the Los Angeles sky!

What's going on here?

Design happens everywhere. We look at it and give you our critique.

By thinking critically about the design that exists around us - evaluating what works, what doesn’t and why - we can apply new perspectives and rigor to our work designing applications and systems and communicate more effectively through design.

Our observations range from big corporate rebrands to local business street fliers. With each, we’ve taken the time to break down the designs and offer our point of view via a ranking system modeled after the Robert Parker wine rating system.

The Rating System

Unsatisfactory: Does not achieve design or communication goals.
Satisfactory: Just enough, sufficient, fine or “sure.”
Good: It’s good.
Very Good: Better than most but not exceptional.
Exceptional: Unusually good, rare, outstanding.

We love looking at new things, so if you want us to evaluate something you have seen or made, feel free to get in touch at, and be sure to sign up for the quarterly Thought Merchants email to get new observations delivered right to you.
