Adventures with LEGO Bricks

I've been designing various items for Build It! a forthcoming show at the National Museum of Scotland. Build It! Adventures with LEGO® Bricks features the work of renowned brick artist, Warren Elsmore, displaying some of his amazing and intricate mini-buildings and models – including a three metre model of the National Museum of Scotland, which will be built during the show.

'LEGO® is more than a toy. It makes architects, sculptors and storytellers of us all.'

I loved LEGO® as a child and, as an adult graphic designer, I love grids so this project has combined two of my (many) obsessions. The concept for the design was created by Jan Dawson of the NMS design team and I have been artworking Jan's idea into banners, posters and a leaflet – an interesting experience for me as I am more familiar with working on projects all by myself, from initial concept, pitching to the client, art directing, then artworking through to finished print-ready design. I'm happy to say that my banner designs have been approved and have gone to print – watch out for them in Forrest Road and throughout the museum.

Build It! Adventures with LEGO® Bricks runs from 29 January until 17 April 2016 as part of the Festival of Architecture 2016, which will celebrate Scotland’s fantastic built environment, as a key part of the 2016 Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design celebrations
