Celebrating 90 years of play with LEGO

It’s not often you get the chance to help one of the world’s best-loved brands celebrate its 90th birthday. To mark this massive milestone, we once again teamed up with Highly Unlikely to build excitement through a global campaign.

LEGO reminds us all of the joy of playing. We wanted to draw on that amazing legacy by filling every image with personality; thoughtful touches like the pirate’s devilish grin and an adorable pineapple echo the power of imagination and add magic to familiar favourites.

Animating LEGO is a bit like playing with it; the bricks are limited but the possibilities are endless. We digitally created each piece of the sets in 3D—there’s no stop-motion at work here!

Whether it’s an ingenious transformation, or simply a satisfying ‘click’, every second of footage reminds the audience of what makes LEGO so special.

Fancy piecing together a playful campaign of your own? Get in touch here to find out how.

It was an easy call for us to present Animade to the LEGO Group as our animation choice on this project. We've worked together before, so we know their attention to detail and approach to account management is top-tier—making the whole process easier and more enjoyable!
