Piñata designed and created visuals for Clash Royale World Finals - the biggest mobile e-Sports event to date. The truly global event took place in London, in the venue build for London 2012 Olympics and featured 16 top Clash Royale players all around the world.
The brief from Supercell Event Producer Aapo Huovila was to create a set of visuals that would build an arch of drama to the show and keep the audience engaged during the 6-hour-long spectacle.
The bar was raised high from the start: We had the opportunity to work with a team of creatives from DONE+DUSTED and Moment Factory, companies that have produced major events like the London Olympics opening ceremony, Victoria's Secret fashion shows and directed the Academy Awards.
While Piñata was responsible for producing the keyarts, on-screen graphics and hero visuals for the venue screens and livestream, Moment Factory focused on the opening ceremony, set-design and bringing the visuals and assets on screens in animated form. DONE+DUSTED did amazing job in creating a spectacle of the show! The event was also broadcasted live to the millions of viewers home, for which we also created the on-screen-graphics and assets.
Eli Hodapp from Touch Arcade writes: "This has made every other show I've gone to in my life, from WWE events to Insane Clown Posse concerts seem like they need to up their game to even come close to competing with what Supercell has put together."
Thanks to all the professionals in the event and entertainment industry involved in the massive project!
