A Team of Lifelong Gamers Finally Use Their Power for Good
StarBeast presses the start button on a new, independent creative agency focused exclusively on esports. Their goal is to continue creating esports content and brand sponsorship experiences designed to resonate with the gaming audience. StarBeast is a team of lifelong gamers with backgrounds in brand advertising, content creation, and graphic design. Companies like Blizzard – Overwatch League, ESP, LA Valiant, Porsche, ESPN, and others have already tapped into the creative powers of StarBeast.
While many esports organizations are building internal agencies, there is immense value in having an independent creative partner with an impartial perspective and understanding of the esports audience, available to work with both brands and esports organizations. “We worked with StarBeast to create the broadcast graphics for several of our productions,” says Matt Grabowski, VP of Marketing at ESP Gaming. “They have an intuitive understanding of our industry and our audience.”
Esports is undergoing a monumental boom in the US and StarBeast believes understanding the unique interests of the esports audience is the key to success for everyone involved. StarBeast is on a mission to help brands and esports organizations effectively engage with its passionate audience. Esports fans have access to vast online experiences and huge multiscreen arrays in arenas, so the creative potential to enhance their experience is unlimited. Endemic and non-endemic brands wanting to engage with these fans need a creative partner like StarBeast to shepherd them through the world of esports. StarBeast’s creative team helps esports organizations explore new ideas and technologies to apply within the esports ecosystem.
“Traditional methods do not work for esports fans have a really high bullshit meter. You have to create experiences that captivate gaming fans. Otherwise, you just end up repelling them,” says Nick Losq, StarBeast Executive Creative Producer. “We are passionate gamers that understand how to help organizations effectively create content for the esports audience.” For the inaugural season of Overwatch League, StarBeast contributed over 240 pieces of content, providing design consultation, execution and content implementation across multiple media channels for the regular season. For the 2018 Overwatch League Grand Finals, StarBeast contributed to the design and was on-site to implement the opening day video for the large-format screens at the Barclays Center. StarBeast looks forward to bringing their expertise in visual communication in advertising to the exciting world of esports.
