Enter the Kawaii Challenge

An Acuteness for Cuteness Challenge

Kawaii is bigger than just a word. The culture of cuteness has spread from the islands of Japan and is now a phenomenon around the world. This sensation of adorableness has the ability to bring us back to our childhood. From Tamagotchis, Pokemon, and the current ambassador of Japan's tourism, Hello Kitty, this cuteness is contagious! Adulthood is overrated, so create a design that transports us to a captivating cocoon of kawaii.
