Design a Zoom background in new LEGO Ideas Activity

It is time to design LEGO backgrounds for Zoom in a new LEGO Ideas Activity.

LEGO Ideas has launched a new Activity, asking fans to design a LEGO brick-built background for Teams and Zoom meetings.

Here is the official explanation of what the Activity is, which can be found on the same page where builders should share their submissions:

Software such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom have become more popular than ever before in recent months, and so too has using custom backgrounds to hide the cluttered home office. We’d love to see what kind of fun and creative LEGO brick-built backgrounds you can create that will make taking meetings from home an epic LEGO experience.

It could be anything from creating a funny scene or beautiful nature/urban inspired background to re-creating a funny meme in LEGO bricks. It could be based on a TV show or game or something entirely else. Could you create it with a 2D or 3D effect? The sky is the limit. Just make sure to keep it family friendly 😉

Please also ensure that your submitted image is in a horizontal (16:9 aspect ratio) format in a high resolution (1920 pixels wide or more).

This is part of a series on LEGO Ideas that gives little tasks for builders to get involved with – there are no prizes, they are just a way to get involved with building something quick for fun. Each challenge is intended to be something quick and fun, unlike the more in-depth building required for a competition or product idea.

The deadline for this Activity is May 18 at 10.00am CEST.

The last LEGO Activity was all about building a Star Wars helmet.
