Chris McVeigh joined LEGO as a designer couple of years ago and before that he was well known for his Christmas ornaments and other festive builds. That makes him the perfect choice to design this year's Winter Village set, 10275 Elf Club House.
To mark its unveiling, here's a short interview with him in which he explains where he gets his inspiration from and offers advice to aspiring LEGO designers:
Q: What was your inspiration for the LEGO Elf Clubhouse?
I thought it would be great fun to explore the world of Santa’s Elves. Where do they go after a hard day’s work making toys? What do they do for fun? Do they give gifts to each other for Christmas? In terms of architecture, the set was inspired by both alpine chalets and Tudor-style homes, with a dash of Christmas magic for good measure.
Q: What is your favourite element of this set?
The reindeer, which is all-new with this set! I like to call her Brixen.
