As we’re closing out Season 1 and preparing for Season 2 of the DAO, it’s fairly plain that we in the DAO have done a significant amount of work in getting ourselves organized, proliferating projects and doing all things respectable equal to our mission: helping the banked to become Bankless. With this end in mind, we in the Audio/Visual, Design, and Marketing guilds have crafted a proposal that aims to bring the skills of Design to all of the DAO. Our proposal is to assemble a Creative Council that will ensure that all digital assets are aligned with the Bankless DAO ethos.
Whereas some might see this as a constraint to their guilds creativity, we assure you that is not the aim. Our aim is to provide a defined playground that is representative of the Bankless brand. This playground will be defined by a Style Guide that will be available to the DAO. The Council will ensure that as projects roll through the DAO that its visual and verbal voice is consistently used. This allows all other guilds to do what they do best; Marketing, Legal, Education, Ops, Analytics, etc., while we in the Design Guild assist you with what we do best: maintenance and curation of the brand assets and their usage. This will help us in the DAO ensure that we are doing quality work by following a brand standard that meets our measure of quality on a consistent basis. It will help contributors avoid burnout by providing succinct parameters to create within. And, it will provide a structural framework to our flow of work. As our DAO continues to grow, the Creative Council will also provide a well-needed sense of structure and vision to seasoned professionals; an encouragement for them to get involved.

Please read through and provide your feedback. It’s our belief that taking this step will get us one step closer to becoming better organized and ready to be a public-facing DAO.
