Borisblock — Contributor Proposal [06/09/21 - 06/11/21]


In the past two months I contributed as a marketing designer, working on a range of different design related tasks for current DXdao projects. I appreciate all the support from the community that helped me to adapt fairly well, and I’m really excited to continue my journey. Reflection post can be found here


06/09/2021 - 06/11/2021

Proposed scope of contribution:

  • DXdao announcements media
  • Infographics for DXdao
  • Support @zett with Swapr announcements media
  • Branding for Aqua
  • Branding for Project “Carrot”
  • POAP design
  • Other DXdao products media


In my first contributor period at DXdao 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.

A retrospective

My second contributor proposal period at DXdao is ending, here is a retrospective and a scope of work that was done.

September started with a launch of Swapr on Arbitrum, $SWPR airdrop and farming campaigns so there was plenty of design work to do. Then, I was focusing on preparation for the Lisbon blockchain week… Zett and I did a few design sessions in order for the swag to be ready in time. Wish i was able to join our team in Lisbon, but maybe next time. In the middle of October I finally started working on Carrot, the project that I was originally invited to DXdao to work on. Did an introduction briefing with @luzzifoss, really excited for Carrot to go live!

To sum all of the above here is a list of projects I was engaged in:

  • Images for Swapr Medium articles
  • Swapr social media banners
  • DXdao merch for conference
  • DXdao beer label and a POAP
  • Partnership banners
  • Carrot UI images
  • Carrot announcement banners
  • Images for DXdao discord
