10. Putting It All Together: Where Ideas... > Thinking Like a Model Designer

Thinking Like a Model Designer

The role of designer is one you take on the minute you step away from existing sets and instructions for building LEGO models. Whether you are working from a real life inspiration or creating something from your imagination—something that has never existed before—you are designing the model of what will be the final result. Part of the joy of LEGO elements is that they allow nearly limitless combinations and patterns. Therefore you, as the designer, have hardly any boundaries.

If you are like some people, you may find the sense of being in complete control overwhelming. Although your head may be full of ideas, it may seem daunting to try and figure out how to turn those ideas into actual models. You may end up with a sketchpad that looks like Figure 10-1.
