Are you a Goth? Not in the sense that you walk around sporting black nail polish and eyeliner. Rather, do you identify with Gothic design, appreciating medieval stone churches adorned with gargoyles, and fonts like Goudy Text and Fette Fraktur? Or do you prefer the simplicity and straight lines of Futura and its Bauhaus brethren? Not sure? Then check out the entertaining set of short animated videos in the Design in a Nutshell series at The Open University. There are six videos in all, on design movements like American Industrial Design, Arts and Crafts, Bauhaus, Gothic Revival, Modernism, and Postmodernism.
Even better, the site also offers a fun 6-question quiz to find out which of the movements fits your style best, and discover your personal design alter-ego.
