Arturs Neiksans is a Latvian chess Grandmaster who is gaining popularity on Twitch and Youtube for his instructive content. 

I have redesigned his brand, starting with replacing that stiff, glossy logo with a sleeker, more modern take on his initials wearing a king's crown. 

I then used a premade template to create a Youtube Intro which incorporates the new logo within a Marvel comic style sequence which better captures Arturs' engaging persona without the need for his likeness in the logo.

I have also done some video editing for his channel, and thumbnail, banner, and overlay production. Most of these portray the Latvian capital of Riga in his signature deep blue palette.

I have also designed and helped conceptualize his video series, "Chess Bites" - short and instructive chess videos on advanced topics.
