Alongside a hand-selected group of the top VALORANT players, we set out to craft a hype trailer for the all-female event that extends the connection between these master gamers and their go-to Agents. The idea was to reinforce the fact that these women can truly stand out on their own talent in the midst of a man’s world.
With the theme “weapons are a girl’s best friend” taking center stage, Riot sought to highlight the Phantom, a powerful automatic rifle and one of VALORANT’s most effective — and popular — weapons. Leaning into their femininity, beauty and decadence took a front seat, as mirrored elements created that metaphorical oomph to connect Agent and pro through the lens of a diamond. Even the weapons were a bit more hyper-stylized, depicting diamond-encrusted lipstick bullets and grenade diamonds.
