Alice Lee: Hacking lego

Lettering, meet Lego

7,600+ lego bricks, 60 base plates, 24 solid hours

With Dropbox’s 2014 Hack Week around the corner, we built a gigantic lettered wall mural out of over 7,600 Lego pieces. Because this is such an unusual design medium, we ad libbed when we had to - from using medical tweezers (what we just had on hand) to pry and fling off misplaced Legos, to using a semi-archaic blueprinting program to map it all out. But in true hackathon spirit, I had a ton of fun (and got little sleep) while making this this past weekend.
