LEGO is hiring for an incredibly niche design role

Niche job alert: the LEGO Group is hiring a graphic designer to work specifically on producing vehicle livery for its Technic and Speed Champions themes.

While the LEGO Group’s creative team is made up of a vast network of designers, concept artists and so on, with many employees frequently moving around different themes and projects, the company is currently seeking a very specific candidate for its Speed Champions and Technic themes. A recent job listing on the Careers page is looking for someone ‘passionate about vehicle livery and graphic design’, which feels like quite a small Venn diagram.

The successful applicant will also need ‘an understanding of different vehicle passion points’, such as sport, racing, transportation and construction – all areas covered between Technic and Speed Champions – along with the usual design skills and experience. In this case, that’s knowledge of working with vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator, a grasp of ‘2D design in a 3D space’, an ‘aesthetic talent’ and the ability to switch between different design styles.

Beyond relocating to Billund, the job itself involves designing ‘decodable and producible’ graphics across Speed Champions and Technic, part of which will naturally include translating ‘partner reference’ into LEGO graphics – think brand logos and sponsors for Speed Champions stickers, for instance. In return, you’ll get company perks including a staff discount, family care leave, life insurance and more. A salary range is not listed on the Careers page, however.

If that all sounds like something you’d be interested in, best act fast: the listing has been up for a couple of weeks at this stage, so the LEGO Group could conceivably have had plenty of applications already. Head over to the Careers page to apply.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
