design DIRECTION  |  UI

 

Secret's out, Blizzard assembled a league of professional esports players around their Overwatch game. Our team was asked to visually design the League's online platform.

I had the opportunity to set our design direction, and with the help of Blizzard's internal UX team and the awesome devs at Haven, we came up with something that stood out from the esports crowd. 

 

Design Direction

Blizzard wanted to stand out from the dark-themed esports websites, and have a clean, Olympics / Apple-inspired interface, so we opted for a light, neutral theme, with the occasional color-coded pops of color, to allow images and videos to shine. 

Below is the winning style tile and a sample of the final style guide:
