Designer insight: Laura Perron

Many LEGO set designers use our BrickLists feature to maintain a list of the sets they've worked on and often provide interesting insights about their involvement.

Once a week we publish an entry from one of their lists on the home page to increase awareness of this information and to encourage more designers to create them.

Laura Perron wrote this about their work on 21336 The Office:

This was a complete dream to be a part of! I saw that it was gaining votes fast on LEGO IDEAS, so I reached out to the Creative Lead, Sam Johnson, to say that if this goes through the review process I need to be a part of it. It did indeed go through, but there was some concern about the workload of taking on this product while still working full time on the DOTS theme. So I asked, what if Chris worked on it too?

We would talk about it constantly, often in our kitchen while cooking dinner. One time Chris was in the shower and yelled out an idea for how to build the tan shelves. We joke that a good chunk of this set was actually designed in our living room. I listened to The Office Ladies podcast and read books and blogs about behind the scenes, shoutout to The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s: an Oral History by Andy Greene. Together with Jaijai and the LEGO IDEAS team we poured a lot of love into this set and I am so happy with the result. What really tied this model together and took it to the next level, was the amazing Graphic Design work by Diego Sancho. Even before this idea got the green light, Diego had designed Jim, Pam, Dwight, and Michael in his spare time, so we all thrilled when he officially joined the project! My absolute favorite design
