This page is to demonstrate the development of our artwork as we progressed through a wide variety of iterations, into the beautiful card artwork we have today. The Shiryo team are incredibly proud of our visual designs and want to take you on a journey through our versions.
Whilst some more traditional companies have spent years on their game, artwork and website prior to going public we understand that the DeFi space moves at a different pace, following our inception and team building we created the community and we couldn’t be more proud of everything our wonderful community has become today.
On launch, our website was designed with efficiency in mind. It was a single page which utilised temporary concept art to convey our ideas. Despite its simplicity, our website was well received in comparison to many other projects in the space and we have seen other projects in the DeFi sphere pop up with very similar websites to our own. ‘Imitation is the greatest form of flattery’.
Moving forwards, our website redesign will be utilised strategically in order to promote a variety of aspects of the Shiryoverse, including game updates, news and advertising funnels to ensure our marketing strategy remains effective.
Our initial concepts were enough to pique the interest of our community, but we wanted to deliver more for our community, we wanted to separate ourselves from other projects in the DeFi space who seem intent on only providing the bare minimum for their community. Our concepts were initially pixel art but we felt this was too basic for the vision we had for Shiryo.
Our earlier illustrations were done in-house.
This task was no small feat, it required constant communication with our team of 20+ illustrators to ensure the art always reflected what we envisioned within the Shiryo lore.
Much love to our community,
Shiryo Design Team
