CBLOL 2018 Act 1
When it comes to bombastic opening shows, the Brazilian League of Legends Championship (CBLOL) finals has a tradition of setting a high bar. In 2018, we were invited to collaborate in this huge celebration of e-sports.
With LED panels covering the whole stage, we designed an optical illusion that blurred the lines between floor and walls when seen through the main camera lens - as watched live by over a million viewers on YouTube.
For ACT 1, it was all about setting a mystical atmosphere to the lyrical vocals and the exotic hurdy-gurdy and nickelharpa. We got inspiration from the game's runes, merging them with the HexTech design guidelines that permeate the whole LoL visual identity.
Have a nice trip and don't forget to check the ACT 2 of this project!
