Hello. My name is Bjarke Lykke Madsen and I am Design Master (Builder). I have worked at LEGO Company as a model designer for 22 years.
I have a background as a Machinist and as a Mechanical Engineer. After my study, I took up my childhood interest in building with LEGO Bricks as a hobby. Later, I applied for the job as LEGO Designer and began 1. August 1997.
Over the years I have worked on more than 25 different themes and designed (or helped designed) more than 100 LEGO sets.
It has been my pleasure to work together with so many wonderful and multi-talented creative people both within model-design, graphic-design and sculpture-design. All of them are great colleagues and many of them I am proud to call my very best friends.
It´s important to emphasize, that making a new LEGO set and bringing it to the marked, is a very complex process that involves the skills, knowledge, experience and enthusiasm from hundreds of LEGO employees in many different departments: Design, Marketing, Building Instruction, Production, Packaging, Distribution and more. The goal is to make each LEGO set the best possible building- and play experience for our customers, and it only becomes possible, because everyone is working together to achieve this.
For this reason, and because I am a very strong believer in fairness, I have credited the colleagues, that I have worked together with on the various sets.
When new LEGO sets (that I have designed) have been released, I will continue to update this list with information that I hope will be interesting to kids, parents, newcomers and longtime fans.
Enjoy & best regards - Bjarke :)
