Australia’s only female Lego product designer, Melody Caddick, loves her job.
“I’ve been into Lego since my grandmother gave me my first Lego set which was at the age of three,” she told Mamamia.
“Whenever it was my birthday or my brother’s birthday I would always encourage my parents to get us Lego.”
The 41-year-old says it was the “ultimate” childhood toy because you could make other toys with it.
“My parents always said I was a creative child…I was never a bored child I was always creating something.”
“The whole process is very very complicated, it’s very extensive. When you go from the beginning of the brief to the final part of the product, the process is quite large,” said Caddick.
“So many things happen, so many people are involved. It’s not just putting bricks together and putting it into a box, there’s a lot more to it than that.
“My part of it is getting the brief, doing the concept models and getting feedback and then developing it.”
