Introducing: The Cloudflare All-Stars Fantasy League

by Jessica Rosenberg.

Baseball season is well underway, and to celebrate, we're excited to introduce the Cloudflare All-Stars Fantasy League: a group of fictitious sports teams that revolve around some of Cloudflare’s most championed products and services. Their mission? To help build a better Internet.

Cloudflare HQ is located just a block away from the San Francisco Giants Stadium. Each time there's a home game, crowds of people walk past Cloudflare's large 2nd street windows and peer in to the office space. The looks in their eyes scream: "Cloudflare! Teach me about your products while giving me something visually stimulating to look at!"

They asked. We listened.

The design team saw a creative opportunity, seized it, and hit it out of the park. Inspired by the highly stylized sports badges and emblems of some real-life sports teams, we applied this visual style to our own team badges. We had a lot of fun coming up with the team names, as well as figuring out which visuals to use for each.

For the next few months, the Cloudflare All-Stars teams will be showcased within the large Cloudflare HQ windows facing 2nd street and en route to Giants Stadium. Feel free to swing by on your way to the next Giants game, snap a pic and share with your fans.
