During a word association game or session, one is given a word and immediately connects other words to it. It helps gives insight into a person’s true perspective or view of the given word. Since I love design, I thought it might be fun to do a word association game with design styles.
For this word association, I was read a design style and instructed to say the first things that came to my mind. I did not have access to the list beforehand, so I was not given time to think. Try it yourself, before reading my results, and compare!
