Mr. Mark John Stafford, LEGO Designer

#1) What inspires Mr. Mark to become LEGO Designer?

 Mr. Mark is an avid Star War fan. He enjoys building LEGO set from scratches. When he has done with a model, he would dissemble and explore the different variations of the model. After he graduated with a Degree in Design, his girlfriend recommended him to work as a designer in LEGO Company. He had undergone 2 days interview with prototype introduction until he finally landed as LEGO designer.

#2) What is your advice for students who wish to become LEGO designer?

  • Just build it
  • Play with physical bricks to gain more sensory activities and creativity
  • Learn basic design skill
  • Learn AUTOCAT and MAYA software
  • Lean up 3D printing

#3) With reference to an article “Small Data for Big Benefit” which was published in Chip Malaysia magazine January 2019, what is ‘small data to design LEGO set’ as referred by Mr Mark?

Lego Group’s motto is ‘Only the best is good enough’. This motto was established by LEGO group’s late founder, Mr. Godtfred Kirk Christiansen. As LEGO designer, we take every feedback seriously. We will investigate and improve our product based on that feedback.
