Bounty for Ideenfrische: APPROVED
« on: April 17, 2014, 02:53:59 am »

I want to propose a bounty for Ideenfrische, who is creating a global corporate design for Nxt here:
https://nxtforum.org/nxt-promotion/a-global-corporate-design/msg9503/

They deserve a bounty for their work, as it finally seems we are reaching consensus and will use their latest proposal. The value of such a design is huge, not only because it looks awesome, but because it will bring together the many facets of Nxt, in print and web, and give us a consistent identity / one face to all, to promote and present to the world.

30K was earmarked from the "Salsacz-fund gdoc" for some Nxt design. I think the Marketing Fund Comimitee should definitely add to this.

Ideenfrische is willing to do the real printing, like cards, brochures and papers, and (in addition to the styleguide that will be distributed to the community) do the design integrations in co working with wesley, and also the real page designs for all domains.

Their offer to help with site designs should be up to the site owners to take or leave, IMO. Those wanting it could donate for the help. For "important sites" The Marketing Fund Committee could add to (double up?) these donations. That seems fair to me. The difficult part is to decide what sites are "important", but that's the kind of ugly decisions you signed up for, right. :)

This is posted for discussion, as well as the size of the bounty for their work and the Nxt design styleguide.

Let's discuss :)

I think they deserve a bounty too. The design is great and it would be very good for Nxt to have a professional design that will help the brand "Nxt" lift off! I suggest a bounty of 50.000 - 75.000 NXT when they finish the styleguide.

I'm all for it!

And may I suggest when it's all said and done, let's fill their wallet with some generosity from individuals too. Nothing says appreciation like a thank you and putting your money where your mouth is (so to speak). This group has done us a great service and tips would be in order :)

For everyone reading this thread: please use it to come up with some kind of definite amount.
We cannot decide on an unspecified amount, so need a number.

This may seem overly bureaucratic, but we need to be accountable for amounts spent, so if you people could come up with something that looks fair to most of you then apenzl can propose this to us.

Kind regards,

Damelon

Seems good to me, plus it is a clear goal when the bounty has to be paid.

we will vote about a bounty for kickstarter soon. If it gets approval, we can use kickstarter for crowdfunding this and all other similar projects. And if the project needs more money at the end of the period, committee can vote about adding there from the funds (see: http://peer4commit.com/projects)

Thanks for taking part!  :)

I'll just add: With money up front, Ideenfrische can draw on more employees = work + get stuff finished faster. Doesn't have to be all, maybe they could get 50% up front and 50% on delivery of the style guide.

The styleguide should be ready in 2 weeks. All open data goes out to everyone.
Also, we (as community) are free to add to-do's to Ideenfrische's list, like that backdrop for A'dam has been added.

They want to go all the way. We must decide what, and how much we want Ideenfrische to do.

I think 100K as a startup. Private donations like QBTC mentions, directly or through Nxtstarter, should follow. If they shall keep an eye on everything afterwards and constantly add to the brand, some monthly appreciation would make sense too. But it's hard to foresee the future. Let them prove themselves.

Next steps suggested by Ideenfrische:

Quote
+ StyleGuide, including video-guidelines to set up fixed fonts, font-styles and colors and positions of all. Splashscreen.
+ Wallet: Help Wesley with the client UI, icons, all different views, image-slicing.
+ NXT Imagesites: Mobile views, responsive views, real images & icons, different site-designs for contact, forum, news, facebook.
+ Print designs for real digital print: Sticker-Giveaways (maybe the blue circles as round stickers), Brochure, Flyer, Business Cards. Every "real" thing like business cards goes out to everybody to edit for himself.
+ Press releases
+ Backdrop-Wall for Bitcoin 2014
+ Facebook-Avatars, Page-Headers
+ Forum
+ GiveAways like pens, cups ?
+ 3rd Party-Apps: If they are willing to get free Designs from us, we should try to tag this with the real brand.

There is so much to do and i am hungry to do all and watch after it to get the absolute constantly corporate communication. More budget, more speed and more employes could help. I am glad to help and do this all.

Plz use standard application format for marketing funds.

And may be I can use Ideenfrische's design for global bitcoin conference in China.

APPLICATION

1. Nxt account and userID/contact info for submitter

Submitter: Apenzl.
I'm submitting this on behalf of Ideenfrische. Their Nxt acc is 12778896932801828554.

2. Submission date

22/4-2014.

3. A short description of the project with your goals very clearly specified(three sentences max.)

Creating a global corporate design for Nxt, with a styleguide for all Nxters; site owners, client devs, conference people, markeers (business cards, pr letters, Nxt videos etc), to add consistency to our look. In addition Ideenfrische will design specific sites and help to implement the design (wesleys client, forum, and what else major site/client could use this, the full plan is here: https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/bounty-for-ideenfrische/msg9795/).

4. Specify the target audience

"Everyone" ;)

First target is Nxters.
The design should satisfy us, so we will implement it by our own will.

Target will become the targets of all efforts wearing the Nxt design, worldwide.

5. Budget

I propose a bounty of 100.000 NXT for Ideenfrische.

This is what ppl seem to agree on in this thread. Hopefully private donations will reach them too. Feel free when you use the design  ;)

I propose that Ideenfrische get 50-80% of the bounty right away (they have already done lots of work), so they can work faster (pay employees).

6. Specify deadlines

First milestone is reached - consensus about a design:
https://nxtforum.org/nxt-promotion/a-global-corporate-design/msg9503/

Next up:

Styleguide - estimated less than 2 weeks from now. Will then be distributed to everybody.

Business cards, flyers and pr letters, conference backdrop, etc. are being made right now, in parallel. It will be ready for China Conference + A'dam.

Implementation - depends on devs and site owners.
Already ppl are all over me in PM to get the styleguide and implement it themselves for their sites.

7. Metrics need to be specified

We'll watch the design pop up in print and on the net in everything related to Nxt.

Website design for nxtcommunity, nxt.org and nxtmagazine and anything else

QBTC is developing nxtcommunity. Nxt.org are in contact with Ideenfrische.

…and anything else?

Everyone will get the styleguide on 1/5. Ideenfrische will follow up.
In addition to this we are free to add to their TO-DO list, and they are very helpful.

We should do it if it makes sense and lives up to the quality of the design and most importantly Nxt, IMO.

If something wearing our corporate design is deeply unprofessional, misrepresenting Nxt, is based on illegal content and so on, it will do great harm to Nxt and everything else wearing the Nxt corporate design. I'm not gonna be the gatekeeper, but my suggestion is that when MC discuss this application, please consider if maybe MC + the 2 other committees could choose 1 trusted person each to proofread what "officially" comes from Nxt. A procedure could be made to keep the result decentralized. It's like multisig for releasing funds. Our official pr and marketing material is money as well and should be treated with care.

I'm returning to Nxt after being mostly away for a week to discover amazing things happening! This corporate design is really going to take us places. From experience I know that there has been a tremendous amount of creative energy and hard work put into this project.

Remember to show some appreciation to Ideenfrische. Their Nxt acc is 12778896932801828554.

I fully agree with this, because i think he is exactly the kind of person that is needed.

He started doing it for free and stuck with that. Did loads of work, while also listening carefully to ideas out of the community, without losing sight of his own goals.

He continually keeps providing materials when people ask for it and keeps a professional distance to the discussion, which I think is a smart move.

He has been working hard, and I believe he is a tremendous asset to our work.

It's exactly the way I like to work with people. Self-sufficient and disciplined, while also being enough of a communicator to listen to and incorporate other ideas :)
