Quiz: What's your design alter-ego?


Design in a Nutshell is an entertaining series of short videos explaining design movements from the last 200 years. The animations are charming, and the narrator has a fabulous accent and says things like "al-yoo-min-ee-um." Watch the videos here to educate yourself about design history, or take a quiz to determine your design alter-ego.

Your alternate persona will be a mashup of notable names from the movement that best matches your style. I ended up a modernist, then took the quiz a few more times to see the other characters. The postmodernist dude (whose favorite color is Thursday) cracked me up.

This is really fun! The questions were really hard for me to answer though. Not enough choices for me I guess. :)

You mean you don't think a Saarinen tulip chair is like a tiger? It's so obvious. :)

That 'fabulous accent' by the way is Scottish. It is alright to laugh at our pronounciation. We laugh at yours and the fact you had to simplify spelling to cope with it!!!

Jessica Jones said...

Yours sounds much more distinguished. British, Scottish, Irish accents... I love them all.

I always get the same score as you do! We must be twins or something... at least twins in taste and style perhaps.

Jessica Jones said...

Or maybe we are actual twins. Are you almost 6 feet tall with really big feet too?

Grandma G said...

She is NOT your twin, no matter what her size or what score she gets! Somehow I just know that.

Mum

Jessica Jones said...

Okay then. If you're sure.

Milene Nelson said...

even if I'm not that tall and my feet are a very small, we could still be twins.
Wouldn't be great to have a brazilian twin, who is part japanese, part italian and has a british last name?

Jessica Jones said...

It would be wonderful!!! :)

Grandma G said...

I suppose I could consider adoption....
