Creative Director

For the second year running, the teams at Royale and Riot Games pulled out all the stops for the Valorant NA team’s maniacal competitive event, Last Chance Qualifier. Building on the work we created together in 2020, we aimed the creative flamethrower at continuing the twisted narrative of 2021’s cast of characters (FaceLesses, Lion&Wolf, and our hero: the Dark Horse.) Mashing surrealist + apocalyptic flavors together gave us a rich palette in which to stage a story following the intense journey through the Red Zone on our way to the next stage of play: Champs.
