Design Guild Season 7 funding proposal
This is the Season 7 funding proposal for Design guild. In this proposal you will see an overview of guild activities during season 6, most important governance decisions made and milestones we have reached within internal guild projects. As well as our plans to succeed in season 7.
Season 6 goals and achievements.
During season 6 our goal within the Drawing board was to re-launch the project following our roadmap https://www.figma.com/file/65Nh3DIpN0WtaPrNNO2AWV/Bankless-Design-Project?node-id=1%3A452.
We successfully did this and continued with the first step on our roadmap - creating a website and pitch deck. Both are still in the process of creation and in its creation fully includes the design talent within the guild. Multiple guild sponsored bounties have been posted for designers to efficiently work on the website. You can see a first draft website here
More info on the Drawing board project can be found in this proposal - THE DRAWING BOARD WEBSITE PROPOSAL - Google Docs
During season 6 there was a terrible incident within the DAO coordinape in which a Design Guild role-holder was involved. Since the incident the member has stepped down from the role within Design guild and left the DAO. This event took the role-holders by surprise and has let to the restructuring of Design guilds governance structure - Dissolving the secretary role and creating an accountant role, which you can see in these following proposals - Discord
Design guild will use guidelines provided by @raybankless.eth to standardise and improve the tracking of guild finances.
Tracking of active members
The Design guild follows the guild membership proposal active from season 5 - Guild Members - Google Docs
Addition to how we CHECK active members - at the end of each season all artisans receive a Tally form requesting information on how their contribution during the previous season has been. If the Artisan fills out this form - they are considered Active contributors. If not, their tag is removed and they can apply to receive the tag again, providing 2 fresh design related contributions to the DAO or Design guild activities. (One cannot become a Design guild role-holder if they do not hold the Artisan tag)
Goals for Season 7
In season 7 design guild wishes to keep pursuing its most important goal - providing guild members with design work, so they can train their skills and participate in fun web3 projects. Our biggest focus will be on the Drawing board project with its goals described in the links mentioned above. As well as to provide better onboarding for talent and retention with a site that will provide blogs and general info about our guild
- A better overview of our design talent that will help market the talent that we have in the Dao in order to support its marketing campaigns.
Funding request for Season 7
In line with member-based guild funding, we ask for a budget of
260,000 BANK = (4 roles x 5 hours x 13 weeks) x 1,000 BANK
- Guid Coordinator
- Governance coordinator
- Talent Coordinator
- Project Coordinator
39,000 BANK = (1 role x 3 hours x 13 weeks) x 1000 BANK
13,000 BANK - Notion Administrator
440,000 BANK = 44# Active Members x 10,000 BANK
- 44 Active Members - Holding the Artisan tag
Season 7 Design Guild Request: 752,000 BANK
Use of extra funding described below:
Due to the size of Design guild, some guild roles require more than 5h per week workload so a portion of guild funds are allocated towards these efforts. Below you can see each role and their assigned hours.
- Guid Coordinator 6h (5 + 1h per week - 6K BANK per week)
- Governance coordinator 5h (no additional hours)
- Talent Coordinator 8h (the guild has 2 talent coordinators each working 4+ hours per week, 5 + 3h per week - 8K BANK per week)
- Project Coordinator 4 (the guild has 2 project coordinators each working 2+ hours per week, 5 - 1h per week - 4K BANK per week)
Total of funds dedicated to role holders in addition to member-based funding guidelines = 3K BANK per week - 39,000 BANK
Total amount allocated to monthly coordinape rounds = 200,000 BANK per season
Total amount allocated to guild sponsored bounties and internal projects (Drawing Board) = 201,000 BANK
