    The branding for the 2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational using Brik Regular by Burn Type, available via The Designers Foundry. The typeface is heavily modified with slanting, compression, stretching, pixelation and other effects The typeface is predominantly used within video formats.

    From LoL Esports:

    MSI is a time for regions to showcase their bold and unique identities and foreshadows the work needed for pros looking to claim a World Championship title of League of Legends, one of the words most popular games/esports. […] The event moves between host regions each year; this year, teams will compete in Busan, South Korea.

    This year’s creative theme, “Take Notes,” is a confident, attitude-infused call to action that highlights the epic moves and original style of MSI’s greatest pros. It continues to build out MSI as the bolder, grittier battleground of LoL Esports.

      Does anyone know if a studio is responsible for this branding and if so which one, or was the branding done internally at riot?

      Cheers
