The Design Guild is requesting 678,450 BANK for seasonal funding from the BanklessDAO Grants Committee for Season 4.
Design Guild aims to bring clear communication of the BanklessDAO mission through intelligent next-gen design. This is achieved in part by maintaining a growing list of design talent, engaging designers with challenging and time sensitive jobs and providing them with the tools they need to help spread the Bankless message.
Seasons 1-3 saw Design Guild organize and ratify a governance structure which included five compensated roles. Some of our roles are now divided to spread the workload and more evenly distribute $BANK to our contributors. As of Season 4, we are proposing some new roles and dedicated workstreams to our budget, as seen below.
- Design Coordinator
- Governance Coordinator
- Talent Coordinator x 2
- Project Coordinator
- Project Coordinator (splitting single role into 2, keeping total compensation the same)
- Notion Administrator
- CC POAP artist spotlight
- Newsletter and External Content Team
- Education Initiatives
In addition to compensating elected role holders, guest pass and other non-role members will be compensated in a Coordinape round. All funds spent by the Design Guild during Season 3 have been for remuneration purposes. We have experienced steady growth and we expect to continue our momentum heading into Season 4.
BanklessDAO Design Guild fosters global Web3 design projects and is integrated in various guilds and projects. Current contributor’s list stands at over 100, with design skills ranging from UI/UX, to 3D Animation, to Logo and Graphic Design, and everywhere in-between.
Design Guild maintains a style guide, and is working on a public media kit. Design Guild is continually offering creative guidance and needed direction to design projects.
The aim is to provide talent of all skill levels to new and existing projects across Bankless DAO and externally.

Design Guild proposes a tiered Coordinape compensation structure similar to AV Guild.
Participation tiers increase from 1-25, 26-35, and 36+ participants, with respective allocation of 25/35/50K per month i.e. $150K is the maximum.

- 25,000 BANK - Miscellaneous

Designers need the tooling to deliver a quality product, which is why we offer active contributors a monthly UBI (universal basic income) for tooling. This is an opt-in claim for all active Design Guild members. The claim takes place during each Coordinape round, where members can tick a box in the Coordinape sign-up sheet. Claimants are allocated an equal portion of the available bank for that month (total Seasonal Tooling budget divided by three). Although claims are on an honour system, L2s may be asked to vouch for people.
|Total||606,000||678,450 BANK||72,450 BANK|
BANK token price is currently sitting around all time lows. Design Guild requests allowing for further token allocation to contributors if the price continues to drop.
Season 3 has seen Design Guild members plugging in to the right places within bDAO.
