Not just a toy company anymore, Lego has expanded way beyond making plug-together blocks. Aside from their flourishing movie business (Guys go see The Lego Movie 2, it’s amazing), Lego has also worked to create blocks that support entire franchises and even themes like the Technic and Architecture series that demonstrate a ‘serious’ playfulness by not just being about the toy aspect of the Lego block, but also of technicality, aesthetics, and a good bit of engineering. Lego is truly the building block that’s age-agnostic. With the Duplo blocks being perfect for little children, to their more serious collectibles for all ages, Lego is universal, and universally loved. Lego is looking for a Senior Designer to join their Creative Play Lab team in Singapore.
