2016 (COMMISSIONED SETS)

MATERIALS: 21 LEGO pieces + 2 stickers

DESIGNER'S COMMENTS: A university approached us wanting thousands of kits to give as gifts to students. But the challenge was to convert their 2D logo to a 3D model. I approached their "M" logo from a different perspective - the "M" can only be seen when looking at the model at an angle, which is how most LEGO models are looked at anyway. If viewed directly from the front, the model will appear to be a square.

The beauty of this is that the model is easy to design - everything is at 90 degree angles - yet makes a striking and fun model that is perfect for display on a desk.
