A glowing vertical sign in an urban alley reads: "Convening Gaming. Building Possibilities. Empowering Success." The sign features a stylized bird icon and the G2E logo at the bottom. Surrounding the sign are various air conditioning units mounted on the wall.
Two overlapping dark-themed promotional flyers lay on a black surface under a spotlight. The flyers feature neon geometrical designs and white text detailing an event named GIZ. The content appears to be invitation or event information, with the focus on a modern, sleek aesthetic.

Strategy

Our team began by immersing ourselves in the event and collecting on-site feedback from attendees, exhibitors, and other stakeholders. Informed by data and insights about the event’s audience and environment, we applied our proven design model to craft a brand platform from the ground up.

We injected vibrance into geometric designs, iconography, and patterns to reflect the sights, sounds, and liveliness of gaming in Las Vegas and around the world. Drawing inspiration from the neon luminance of the city’s iconic Strip, we merged that dynamic energy with a collage of game pieces and playing card suits. Our video team amplified the excitement in motion advertisements by synchronizing animations with music and emphasizing a clear and engaging message to invigorate attendees and showcase the event’s evolution.
