A Pixar Look to a Grid-System Product

Full confession: I was really into Legos until long past when it could be considered charming, cute, or even normal. I still think that I should have been the chief designer for the corporation in spaceship design. I would have had a business card that said, “Jeremy Tessmer Chief of Spaceship Design.” Well, yeah. What did you want to be when you grew up?

So, I actually loved watching this propagandistic cartoon. (It’s only propaganda if you don’t share the one-world view you’re getting from a media source.) I remembered, too, that my interest in visual design comes from a toy that I dearly loved. I remembered that I went to Legoland because I had Danish family to visit in Copenhagen. So, there is a backstory to my unalloyed love of models made of plastic bricks.
