Borisblock — Contributor Proposal [05/07/21 - 05/09/21]

Background

Hi everyone, this is the contributor proposal for Boris, @borisblock on Keybase. I live in the East Siberian part of Russia. I’m a designer, specializing in branding and motion graphics with over 10 years of experience, currently focusing on UI/UX aspects of design. I am especially interested in the DeFi community and have been contributing to the space over the past few years. Some of my work for Agave, Celeste, 1Hive and Nexus Mutual can be found here .

In addition, since Autumn of 2020 I have been contributing to the 1Hive DAO and have an understanding of how to work within a DAO. I really dig DAOs and think that they are the future, very excited to be here. Thank you @jpkcambridge for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to contribute to DXdao.

A retrospective

My first contributor proposal period at DXdao that lasted for 2 months is nearing the end and here is a retrospective on how I think it went.

I worked closely with @Zett and @KeenanL throughout these months and it was a very nice experience. Design related tasks were communicated well through detailed descriptions from members of DXdao, as a result of this I was able to focus a lot of my time on design curation and less time in meetings, which was a definite plus. Overall, I really liked the process and can’t wait to crack on more tasks. Also, big thanks to @Melanie for curating my DXdao journey.

Over the past two months I was working on the following:

  • DXdao governance 2 year anniversary POAP
  • Several Swapr banners for social media
  • DXdao social media banners, such as EthCC, TheDaiost and EthLisbon
  • Logo design for DXvoice
  • DXdao announcement banners: Q2 treasury update and DXdocs announcement
  • Multiple logo designs for the Aqua MVP
  • SWPR launch and airdrop related banner designs
  • Images for SWPR token Medium article

My timezone made it a bit tricky to schedule calls, despite this we managed to have very productive calls with the aqua team. Also, it was not the best factor for certain tasks that needed to be completed fast, however, I did my best to finish them in time.

Looking forward, I think I can improve on my initiativity, communication and work more closely with DXvoice.
