LEGO Quotes:

LEGO sets and bridges have a lot in common. When you take a close look at LEGO sets, they all have engineering elements incorporated into the design and assembly structure. That I think would be an aspiration for every boy during his childhood, especially for an engineering student. I’ve seen a lot of my colleagues at work collecting LEGO sets, and I often buy my children LEGO as gifts. When I show my colleagues my portfolio, they are fascinated by it.
Jehyung Lee, Bridge designer
One of the most striking features of LEGO is that the company lets its employees have fun while working. There are many spaces in the company to relieve stress with video games or slides. The purpose is to help employees get relaxed, rather than focusing intensely. LEGO makes sure employees are enjoying their work and can continue to be creative like children so that they can come up with better design ideas. In addition, Danish people themselves have a laid-back attitude toward life.
