LEGO being the building-themed toy brand that it is, anybody could become a fabled Master Builder with practice and experience. Perhaps they might suggest new set products via submissions to LEGO Ideas. Some old and practiced hands in LEGO-brick-building have instead gone into business themselves, providing custom sets outside LEGO’s library. Now, while the former might see some lucky product ideas become official, the latter, if rarely has greater advancement potential. Perhaps LEGO might extend an invite to some lucky creators to become part of the team. We’ve seen this happen years ago with Chris “PowerPig” McVeigh. Now, the opportunity’s opening up one more time.
As Brickset would have it, LEGO’s made quite the announcement of looking for new aspiring product designers. The official website LEGO.com has posted this prime job opening on their Careers page. And like Chris McVeigh way back in 2019, the lucky designer-builder will be going to work in Billund, Denmark. The company asks would-be applicants to consider the core responsibilities of a LEGO product designer. Conceptualizing ideas, stories and themes then “translating” them into physical play experiences sounds rather simple in print. But make no mistake: this job will push an aspirant’s imagination and building skills to the very utmost.
The LEGO Product Designer Career page features a link to an application form. Interested parties need fill up their personal information and attach a comprehensive rsumwith cover letter via the Application Wizard. This will open up an applicant profile that LEGO can refer to. Applicants must be active on their LEGO Career profile while the company deliberates. For American designer hopefuls, this might take up to 24 months. But hey, joining LEGO as a creative force is worth it. Who might answer the challenge?
