Amy Corbett Career
Amy Corbett started her LEGO career in 2013 as a Junior Designer for LEGO Friends. She has since taken the lead on several projects, driving the design team, art direction, and play experience as a Design Manager, starting on the LEGO Disney product line. Now as a Design Lead, Amy drives a team of designers to explore and develop new play propositions, and is also a judge on the LEGO Masters USA TV show.
We caught up with Amy to learn more about one of her recent projects a new arts and crafts brand called LEGO DOTS, boasting initial lines that span blind booster bags, wearable bracelets, and room décor items like photo cubes, picture frames and pencil holders. Since she was a kid, she has always loved designing and making things, so my dream was to turn my passion into a job.
I went on to study Product Design Engineering, where I learnt to bring the fun and playful experiences in my head to life as real products. From the very first project, she knew that creating toys was the job for me, and where better than The LEGO Group. I dedicated each project to honing my skills in toy design, and soon after I graduated, and got my dream job as a toy designer for LEGO Friends.
Amy has since moved around the company and worked on many different projects. That was almost seven years ago, and I love it more every day. We wanted to bring a creative experience that would celebrate the LEGO system and build creative confidence in kids.
To do this, we knew we shouldn’t stray too far from the elements we know and love, but instead, find a way to reimagine and breathe new energy into them, making the experience relevant and engaging for a new audience. Our goal was to democratise creativity for everyone, which meant having instant success, but also being able to build on that, getting better and more adventurous every time.
We tried many different directions, but we soon found that the 2D building platform and designing through pattern-making were the perfect foundation…and after a lot of looping, LEGO DOTS was born.
Finally, we wanted to showcase the patterns and creativity in a meaningful way; celebrating the designs through items like a pencil box, photo holder, or bracelet. With LEGO DOTS, you can play with shapes, colors, and decorations to make endless combinations. And something seemingly simple, that anyone can try, can turn into something amazing.
In 2008, Corbett spent three months assisting a non-government organization (NGO) in Botswana in the creation and implementation of sustainable projects. In 2011 she assisted with Engineers Without Borders (UK) to help the village coffee growers process their own crops. She started working as a design manager at the Lego Group in 2012.
She is responsible for developing new product lines. She worked on the Lego Friends line, a line that was launched when she arrived at the Lego Group. She also worked for the Lego Disney line. She was part of the concept team for the 2018 film The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. Her current project with her design team is Lego Dots, customize daily items like jewelry and picture frames.
