Guild Description

Design guild is a community of skilled designers who collaborate to produce high-quality visuals that communicate BanklessDAO’s message and values to the world. The guild members are passionate about graphic design and have a deep understanding of BDAO’s goals and target audience. They work closely with other BanklessDAO teams, such as marketing and social media, to create visually compelling content that resonates with BDAO’s’ audience.

Past activities

In Season 8 Design guild focused on already started initiatives like: Learning sessions - 2 times every week Design guild holds learning sessions where members can improve there skills in many different areas of graphic design, DrawingBoard project - as the website has been completed, this season the guild focused on creating a pitch deck in order to be able to reach out to clients and offer services, Weekly Community call POAPs - as it has been for the past many seasons design guild members make sure that there is a POAP ready every week for the community call, Internal governance - this season as well as previous seasons the guild is continuing their previously started effor to restructure internal operations in order to adapt to current DAO standards, changes to take place for season 9 are as follows - Shortening role holder positions from 2 to 1 in roles such as Talent coordinator and Project coordinator, Moving away from guild coordinape and introducing an activity bonus (when a member fills an activity check that is up to standards they receive a bonus from previously allocated funds to coordinape)


By having a dedicated graphic design guild, BDAO can ensure that its branding and messaging are consistent and visually appealing across all channels. This helps to establish BanklessDAO as a professional and trustworthy organisation in the eyes of its audience. Additionally, the guild’s expertise allows Bankless to stand out from other DAOs, demonstrating the importance of design in communicating complex ideas to a wider audience.

  • We conduct an activity check every month, to gage which guild members have been active during that month, and ask them to submit a contribution.

  • At what intervals is this updated?

  • Every month on the last day

  • How is active membership status gained, tracked or lost?

  • Every season, if a member has not been active during the season, they lose their artisan tag.
