Celebrating 30 years of design excellence from Ideas Factory

To acknowledge this milestone we’ve created an online quiz. We’ve gone right back to 1986 – the year Ideas Factory was founded – and dropped clues from both pop culture and the design world into our studio to help you guess the year.

Correctly guess all 5 years shown and you could win a Karlsson flip clock!

  • How to play:

  • Hover over the green dots for clues.
  • Select the correct year from the multiple choice answers at the bottom of the page.
  • There are 30 years in total with 5 randomly selected years being shown per game.
  • No cheating – Google didn’t exist in the 80s!
  • Enter your details and get started…
