Google Stadia

Revealed in March 2019, Stadia is a new cloud-based gaming service from Google that lets gamers stream the best games across any device, anywhere.

In partnership with Google and Google Creative Lab, we sought to capture and elevate the service’s guiding principle: one place for all the ways we play. We helped develop the brand identity and visual system that celebrates Stadia’s simplicity, inclusivity and innovation.
