LIV Golf, 2022
To create the opening moment and draft for a brand new, exciting and controversial golf brand making waves in the industry.
We had three months to fully concept this inaugural draft which would also serve as the very first grand showcase of this brand to the golfing industry and the world.
WLLX would recruit a team of professional event producers, technical directors and technical suppliers to come together to develop technology to deliver the inaugural draft of a brand new tournament.
12 captains select their teams of 4 from a group of 36 professional players, in a way that is democratised and fair. Drawing inspiration from other team sport drafts, the challenge was to create a unique draft experience into this new, disruptive golfing brand
While already working to a severely limited lead time and resource shortages due to the Queen’s jubilee, we needed to work fast to deliver an experience that was premium despite the obstacles.
At the last minute, we were faced with a venue change, we had to secure a new venue in a matter of days and transpose our entire event into this new space.
Over the next few days which were the critical lead up days to the event, we rebuilt our entire event concept and theme delivered a world class event experience.
We launched the world first professional Draft with 48 players.
12 unique teams and branding, creating a brand new launch event and technical draft which picked the teams from a pool of some of the biggest golfers in the world for this incredible new brand disrupting the golfing industry.
We showcased the diversity of talent in the team.
