Project I am Proud of

For Red Bull, we handled the press tour for the League of Legends World Champions DRX in the wake of their victory over T1. We managed to secure several top tier publications including The Athletic (which doesn’t typically cover esports), Washington Post, as well as engaging a number of endemic esports outlets to get the story behind the champions out.
