MLB Network called on Lava Studio to follow up their Promax Gold-winning and Emmy-nominated MLB Tonight show package with a whole new look for the new season.

The home plate shape anchors everything from the show open to animated graphic elements and live set content, giving MLB Tonight a unique branded look that baseball fans love.

Lava's main title design for The Forever Purge defied expectations for the latest in Blumhouse's popular dystopian film series. Lava brought beauty to the titles by creating idyllic watercolors of Americana, which are then fractured to expose violence, racial tension, anti-immigrant sentiment and societal decay.

The hottest live games on MLB Network got hotter with Lava’s redesign of the MLB Network Showcase show package. Lava’s concept for the show was to take the viewer on a fast paced ride through 2D compositions that unexpectedly transition into 3D space and back again, always playing with viewer’s sense of space. Lava’s design integrates three star players from each team into animated graphic environments. It was essential that the design be customizable for each specific game matchup, as if the open was made to order for every game.
