In the ever-evolving world of web design, teamwork and innovation are key components for success. TOPTAL, a top talent agency specializing in web design, understands this well. We recently organized a virtual workshop that brought together 33 participants from all corners of the globe. What made this event unique was the incorporation of LEGO® bricks, a timeless tool for creativity and teamwork, and the expertise of us at Playwell Bricks, a company known for its innovative approach to team building through play.
The TOPTAL virtual workshop held on Tuesday was a testament to the agency's commitment to fostering creativity, collaboration, and team-building among its talent. With participants spanning multiple time zones and diverse backgrounds, the event aimed to bridge geographical gaps and strengthen the bonds between team members.
One of the standout features of the workshop was the integration of LEGO® bricks into the activities. LEGO® bricks have long been recognized as more than just a childhood toy; it's a versatile tool that encourages creativity, problem-solving, and teamwork. Playwell, a company specializing in LEGO®-based team-building exercises, partnered with TOPTAL to design a custom LEGO® set specifically for this event. This set allowed participants to explore the intersection of web design and LEGO® in a way that was both fun and educational.
The workshop kicked off with ice-breaking activities that allowed participants to get to know one another on a personal level. These activities, designed by Playwell, were engaging and lighthearted, setting a positive tone for the rest of the event.
Participants were divided into teams, each with a specific web design challenge to solve using their LEGO® bricks. This required effective communication, collaboration, and creative problem-solving. Through hands-on activities, team members bonded and learned to work together seamlessly.
The incorporation of LEGO® bricks encouraged participants to think outside the box and approach web design challenges from new angles. One of the participants said, “I think it went really well, was fun and interactive and it was a pleasure seeing so many faces focus on building the structures and putting meaning to it.” This design thinking aspect was invaluable, helping participants develop innovative solutions to real-world web design problems.
The workshop's virtual format allowed participants from various countries to collaborate in real time, experiencing the advantages and challenges of working in a global, remote team. This global perspective is increasingly relevant in today's interconnected world.
