Creative Market March 31, 2021 · 4 min read

What design decade do you actually belong in?

Are you flashy and disruptive like the 80s or more of a cool 1950s kinda cat? Take this quiz and see which design decade best reflects your imaginative personality!

You belong in the 50s Daddy-O!

Don’t go ape when we tell you that you belong in the 1950s! Your style reflects the atomic age because, well, you’re the bomb. Just like the paradoxical nature of this decade and its design, you often find yourself pulled between extreme emotions. You have the potential to do the greatest of things, but you also have the power to destroy… So pull up a barkcloth covered chair, pour yourself a Tom Collins, and make sure you use your powers for good.

You belong in the swinging 60s

You’re one cool cat. Like the design of the 60s, you’re bold, bright and not afraid to show yourself to the world. Those that know you, absolutely love you, while those don’t might need a little time getting used to all your incredible contrasts. Like a graphic pop, your personality is incredibly vibrant and magnetic. It’s a great thing lucite and colored plastics are making a big comeback because we don’t think your home would be complete without them!

You belong in the groovy 70s

Peace, love, and stylized flower patterns are just a few of the reasons you’re best suited for the design of the 1970s. Like the popular designs of that disco decade, you’re the epitome of freedom and self expression. Your style reflects the merging of rock and roll and disco. You’re likely a traveler, and if you haven’t been to India or Morocco, we recommend going ASAP! There are elements of these cultures in your personality as well as your preferred style. Neutral colors work for you but you’re also not afraid to get a little funky!

You’re totally rad and made for the 80s!

Just like this decade of decadence, your personality is electric! At your most active, you’re like a bright neon sign attracting everyone and everything over to you.
OK, sure you might not LOVE the whole sprinkle explosion thing, but you gotta admit, it certainly caught your attention! Neon noir and 80s deco match your vibe and you’re never afraid to experiment with mixing patterns. So let us know, can you relate?

You belong in the fly 90s

As if you could stand the design of another decade! You long for back in the day when grunge was just starting to come out of the Pacific northwest, and the bright decadence of the 80s was fading. You’re a down to earth person who values what’s below the surface. You don’t need to be flashy to feel confident and you often trust your insticts even when you don’t get the approval of others. Your personality definitely matches the design of the 90s. Make no bones about it!
