People say experience is the best teacher, so I will keep improving UX/UI skills and do my best to deliver sufficient designs in a timely manner.

A retrospective

For the last two months, I’ve contributed as UI and visual designer for DXdao products. This proposal was planned to end on 7/1/2023 but I will end it on 31/12/2022 so I can have a fresh start on my next proposal on DAVI guilds from 1/1/2023. Here are some highlights from this period:


It was a very active couple of months for Carrot on both discussions and development progress. Happy that we are gradually moving some of the tasks to GitHub, here are some examples:

  1. DAVI

Thanks to regular calls with @ross my onboarding into project DAVI went very smoothly. I get all the examples and information I need to understand and execute my tasks on time. The tasks that were marked as a priority was done:

  1. VOICE

Lately, I’ve been focusing on mostly UI-related work, so it feels nice to get back to some graphic design stuff. Made some banners and a POAP template for Swapr and DXdao community calls.

What went well:

  • Carrot tasks are getting more structured and easier to follow
  • DAVI onboarding
  • Closer work with the development teams

What could be improved:

  • Add more structure to tasks and files
  • Communication
  • UX skills
  • Self-organization


I used my free days off on November 23 and December 22. The second part of my proposal (Dec 7 - Jan 7) has 23 working days. I took holidays on December 29-30 and January 2-3, and will deduct them as a part of this proposal. Since I’m ending my proposal early on Dec 31, I need to take away 5 working days plus 4 days off = 9 days.

The calculations were tricky, but thanks to @allyq we got the correct numbers right here:

23 - 9 days = 14 working days

6000 / 23 = 260.8695$ DAI per day
4000 / 23 = 173.9130$ DXD per day
0.1667 / 23 = 0.00724783 REP per day

For the second half of the proposal i will request:
14 x 280.8695 = 3,932.17$ in DAI
14 x 173.9130 = 2,434.78$ in DXD
14 x 0.00724783 = 0.10146962 REP
