Fabit has collaborated closely with Blast, the esteemed CS:GO Premier Events organizer, for the past three years. This blog gives a look behind the scenes on how this extraordinary partnership created the exclusive Blast Premier trophy. From initial design concepts to the crafting process, you'll get insights about the innovation and expertise that brought this exclusive Esports award to life.
Conceptualization and Iteration
The design process began with a vision to create a premium trophy symbolizing achievement within the competitive gaming community. Drawing inspiration from Blast's logo, our teams started brainstorming sessions, exploring various design concepts. Over time, the idea of incorporating diagonal lines into the triangle trophy emerged, adding a dynamic and visually captivating element to the award's aesthetics.
3D printing played a crucial role in shaping the Blast Premier trophy. Using polyamide as the primary material, we utilized 3D printing to bring the design of the award to life. However, we quickly realized that the raw texture of polyamide required skill and precision to achieve the desired level of refinement. To achieve a smooth finish, the award was hand sanded. It is carefully filled to add weight and substance to the premium trophy, ensuring a solid and substantial feel.
The refinement didn't stop there. A vital step in the refinement process involved a vapor fuse treatment that further smoothed the trophy's surface to perfection. After this treatment, the trophy was meticulously hand-sanded once again, ensuring every detail was flawlessly polished.
To elevate its elegance, the Blast Award underwent a transformative journey. It began with applying the first coat of silver, followed by adding delicate silver leaf details by hand. This intensive and detailed manual process can take up to a week. Each layer is then carefully sealed with layers of varnish, protecting the trophy's stunning shine and enhancing its visual appeal, resulting in the premium Esports trophy that would become famous.
Unveiling the Trophy
With two silver trophies awarded for the Spring Final and Fall Final and the prestigious gold trophy reserved for the World Final, these iconic Esports trophies represent the success of the Blast Premier events.
