My internship taught me a lot about how LEGO as a company worked, as well as the design industry generally. The expectations of me were fair, and my manager's feedback and guidance was always appreciated and made sense.
Everybody in the workplace was always very friendly and made me feel welcome, and I knew I could ask anybody if I needed help with anything. It felt almost like being part of one big family.
The hardest part of the job was striking the right balance of aesthetics, playability and ease of building for the target user group. Designing a product that looked good and functioned well, while also being easy enough for young children to build, was quite challenging, and my time at LEGO helped me develop my ability to do this.
The most enjoyable parts of the job were the sense of community, and the joy of helping to design something that kids are going to love.
Friendly, fun, relaxed atmosphere, useful performance feedback
