Cover Story

Uniswap Frees The Genie

This week we saw the Defi giants Uniswap sweeping in to acquire Genie.xyz. We took this opportunity to create artwork in a kawaii style that shows a cute Unicorn amongst many other cute things.

Red came to the discussion with a suggestion to create this one in Kawaii style, which is a Japanese style that is cute. In fact, “Kawaii” means “cute” in Japanese. The idea was to show a Unicorn spitting out UCDC bonbons and surrounded by several other condiments. The UCDC bonbons are in reference to the $5m airdrop they did once the acquisition was over. 

After studying several illustrations we made a rough sketch depicting all the elements we wanted to show. Next, we got to sketching in this style that uses clean lines and a pinkish palette. Once the illustration was created we took it to AE where Dudly added some magic and of course J-Pop music to accompany it. 

Another interesting fact about this week’s cover is that we used Japanese text for the logo we were actually worried whether Google did a good job translating. Thankfully we had Arigato, a long-time friend and supporter of Redlion confirm that is perfect on time.

We hope you loved this cute Kawaii cover as much as we did making it! See y’all next week with another cool one!
