COLOUREVOLUTION by Cara Thompson
This datavisualisation traces the use of different colours in lego sets, from the first set to today. It is built using R, with an aesthetic that a lego brick sculpture. The emergence of different colours (orange, lime, turquoise) highlights Lego's move towards story-driven sets, and the effort to appeal to a wider demographic.
The question of whether the colour shift presents a success story for diversity or simply a good business move is left for the reader to grapple with.
