Lego Imagine Windows into Another World

Lego art was taken to the streets in a set of three murals mounted on bus stop adshels in Singapore, launched in March 2011. When viewed from the front, the murals blended with the background even in their illustrative and studs-out form. Certified Lego artist Nicholas Foo (Blackbulb) worked with Ogilvy’s creative team to design “Whale”, “Monster” and “Caterpillar”. Each piece measured around 1.2m x 1.8m and used a total of over 97,000 pieces of 1×1 plates. The campaign won a Silver Outdoor Lion at Cannes International Festival of Creativity.

    Sorry but the idea of using posters in that way is pretty old – and the execution ist poor.

    This poster was beautiful. It was really made out of legos. I saw it for like two days at a bus stop. Didn’t see the others.
