Back in March, we took on a pretty intense project for the 2024 Red Bull Kumite, right in the heart of Times Square. Our job? Design and create the graphics for the event, making sure the games looked amazing on a massive 8K corner screen in New York City. We crafted the fullscreen visual experience, with graphics seamlessly laid over live camera feeds, resulting in a high-end and visually stunning display.

The atmosphere was electric, with onlookers and participants alike immersed in the intense action and breathtaking visuals. The event was streamed live on Red Bull Gaming's Twitch and YouTube channels, giving a global audience of hundreds of thousands a front-row seat.
