ESL-Hammertein-NewYork-HearthstoneWCS-2

Hearthstone & World of Warcraft World Championship Series Qualifiers 2014 Production Graphics

We were contracted by ESL Gaming & Turtle Entertainment to provide a slew of visual assets for their event in New York for Blizzard Entertainment and the World Championship Series. Located at the Hammerstein Theater in New York, the Hearthstone event took up the main stage and World of Warcraft 3v3 Tournament was hosted in the lower level. We created two massive 5’x12′ banners to flank the main screen on stage and several smaller (but still big, averaging around 3’x6′) banners to go around the space adorned with a variety of logos and background images. For the entry to the space, we created two roll-up displays, one of which had two different backgrounds, that gave visitors a heads up as to what was going on. We also created a promotional card that had codes that visitor could redeem for in game items. For the World of Warcraft tournament we made a massive 17’x10′ curved backdrop for their casters. Round it all off with a few minor signs, caster cards and a vector version of the twirl in the Hearthstone logo that was used on thunder sticks and the trophies and it was a pretty involved job. Everything we did for this project was created in a 2 week period just before the show.
