With our newest customized search-and-find book nearing release, would you like to know exactly what it takes for our team to get our products across the finish line?

The first—and arguably most important—step is to be on the same page as our brand partners. In this case, our team has worked very closely with the folks at LEGO® and their publishing partners. This is a global effort requiring team members from Denmark, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. We put forward a story idea and work with our partners for approvals and concept/story edits.

Next, our designers work with the LEGO design team to modify and create new artwork. For our new LEGO Ninjago book, this meant working on our child-sized and adult-sized minifigure personalization options (hair color, hair style, skin tone, outfit, etc. etc. etc.). It also means finding creative ways to work the custom minifigures into the search-and-find pages.

When the book’s gone through final approvals, it’s all hands on deck as we prepare for development and launch! From creating our marketing materials, to prepping our site and the actual books for production with our printers, this is no small task.
