I hope you enjoyed your August. Here’s the monthly update from CDWG - slightly shorter this month, as less seems to happen in August.
Reminder of goals
The goals of CDWG II were:
- Website: finish design stage and assist in build stage of new website
- General design work: continue to assist other Owls and WGs in the long-term ambition of becoming ‘the best designed DAO in DeFi’
Major progress against goals in August:
Website: candidly - for some engineering reasons I’ve now moved to fix with some deeply appreciated help from @dylan and the wider Engineering team - we’ve not moved forward much in August. The design work is essentially done, some helpful engineering assets have been built - to power our blog and some dynamic numbers (example: TVL) - but we’re yet to deploy the bulk of the work and realize the project. However, thanks again to Dylan for jumping in to help resource the technical project management and release plan. We hope by next month’s update this project is delivered.
General design execution:
→ 3D Cooper: creating a 3D owl mascot, we can use in a range of marketing locations. @codeMathics has continued to lead an amazing charge here, with valuable support from @Earth2Travis. While Cooper is still in the polish phase, and not fully finalized, you’ll notice the advances from last month to a variety of Cooper-in-situ styles below:
Amazing, no?! I should say this project is still in flow, and not finished, but we cannot wait to deploy Cooper as our mascot - and if you have ideas as to where and how to use him/her please let us know here. We’d also love your general feedback on Cooper’s look n feel - as well as his/her name. Names used in CDWG so far include these - which do you like most? And what gender is our owl?
- Indie D’Cooper
→ Social media assets & videos: @Caf @Static121 and Earth_Maze (not in forum) have continued to create some incredible social assets and Caf and Static have managed our Twitter with such panache and verve this last month or so. If you’ve wondered what was behind the incredibly high level of design execution on Twitter, you now know it’s these two. There’s an insane amount to give kudos to here, but I’d cite these pieces as good examples of this great work:
We have a newly joined Dowl working on the DATA launch video, which we look forward to featuring - and giving him some kudos - next month. And speaking of video, Earth_Maze’s MVI video this month was 2x-fire.
As always, there was lots more design work done, the above is merely a citation of some of the most potentially interesting. More to come next month and we look forward to tonnes of work, and supporting design work, in the last four months of the year.
Finally, kudos to the CDWG for being awesome and so welcoming.
We welcome your feedback, ideas and collaboration,
