Christian Damm
Senior Concept Artist - The LEGO Group
CMA - Innovation & Strategy Team
Front End Product Development

I have been working with animation and computer games for more than a decade, delivering concept art and storyboards for various titles and projects, including the Massive Multiplayer Online Game, "EVE Online" for CCP Games, published by Atari.

In 2010 I got hired to work full time for The LEGO Group at their InHouse (advertising) Agency. Working as Art Director I helped setting the visual direction for the home grown IP franchise, "LEGO Ninjago", an epic tale of four young ninja heroes battling evil forces. My responsibilities included that of concept art, IP-development, various illustrations, packaging design, storyboards, in-store materials, the trading card game and directing of freelance illustrators / concept artists.

By January 2012, I was promoted to Senior Concept Artist and moved to the Front End Product Development Team, IST (Innovation & Strategy Team), part of the new CMA-setup. At the Front End Team we're working hard to develop new and exciting play experiences for the LEGO builders of tomorrow.

“Christian is a great art director. Not only does he know exactly what needs to happen on any given illustration to make it more attractive and conform with the IP specifications, but he also has a great ability to clearly and thoroughly explain himself to the artist. To top it off, his direction and advice over the time that I've worked with him has been a wellspring of knowledge that has helped me become a better artist. It is always a pleasure working with him.”
