#1397 Q&A WITH DESIGNERS: Interview with a LEGO Designer from Ninjago theme

At the end of June we had the honour of speaking to LEGO designers and asking them your questions! This was through the LEGO Ambassador Network of which were are part of, so we were able to do 4 interviews with 4 different teams.

The second interview we're sharing is with Niek Duco van Slagmaat, who has come from intern to designer of sets such as Voltron and who now works on the Ninjago team. He asked our burning questions such as which comes first, the show or the sets and why no new face prints for Ninja? We also discussed the development of the original Ninjago City and which expansions models he'd like to see in the future! Finally he talked us through the budget limitations and how they decide whether to introduce a new part, which was very insightful! Make sure to read through the images for the full Q&A!

We want to say a massive thank you to Niek for his time and interesting answers, as well as to the LEGO Ambassador Network team for making this interview possible!

Tell us what you found most interesting from the Q&A in the comments and stay tuned for interviews with the Harry Potter and CMF teams, coming soon!
