NIP approached us with a vision to create a dynamic and visually captivating motion graphics video that would showcase their brand identity, highlight their achievements, and engage their audience.
Our challenge was to create a video that would not only capture the spirit of esports, but also reflect NIP's unique personality and style.
Transitioning to esports and media production – their new branding must carry that transformation into the future.
Our talented team worked with NIP's designers and combined their creative expertise with cutting-edge motion graphics techniques to bring their vision to life.
We crafted a storyboard that emphasized the key elements of NIP's brand, including their iconic logo and signature colors.
Using a combination of 2D and 3D animation, we animated dynamic transitions, energetic text effects, and engaging visuals that captured the excitement and intensity of esports.

“The first day was rough” she admits, but says that as time passed and the logo was displayed in more contexts — on jerseys, in actual games — she started to receive more positive feedback from fans. While other organizations may have struggled with the initial blowback, Bonnell doesn’t think that will happen with NIP.
“First they’ll be ridiculed,” she says, “then they’ll be revered.” - The Verge
The final motion graphics video we created for NIP exceeded their expectations and captured the essence of their brand. It effectively showcased their achievements and engaged their audience, making it a powerful marketing tool for their esports events and promotions.
NIP was thrilled with the outcome and praised our team for delivering a high-quality, professional, and visually appealing video that perfectly represented their brand identity.
