Onesize asked Fredrik Ekholm & Steffen Knoesgaard to pitch a visual concept for the brand new award show "The Game Awards". The show was perviously part of a major broadcasting network under another name, and producer Geoff Keighley wanted the show to break free and evolve into something new. A new visual profile and graphics package was needed for the new show now being broadcast on Twitch, Youtube, Xbox Live & PSN amongst other major gaming websites.
Taking the shows mantra "Games Will Rise" and translating it into a visual concept, Fredrik & Steffen knocked out a treatment and soon after joined Onesize in producing the plethora of on screen elements for the show. Focusing on the opener and selected nominations, the direction was defined which was then rolled out to the entire package including Laundry List, Several Nomination Screens, World Premiere titles, Animated Backgrounds, Lower Thirds, Mortise, Transitions, and Logo animations.
John Black / CypherAudio jumped aboard and crafted the audio for the entire package.

The show was held on December 5, 2014 in Las Vegas at The AXIS auditorium.
