ON THE BALLOT: This ThankApe Winning Artist Wants To Make A Mascot For The ApeCoin DAO

After ApeCoin DAO contributor AnnieRawrz created a piece of $Ape art in a recent ThankApe contest, she submitted an Ape Improvement Proposal to design a mascot for the ApeCoin DAO that's up for a vote this week!

AIP-289 titled ‘Designing a Mascot for Apecoin,’ is an ecosystem allocation fund proposal written by ApeCoin DAO Contributor AnnieRawrz.

“The overwhelming response to Apekin, my Thankape art contest entry in June, has demonstrated the need for a mascot among the Apecoin community,” AnnieRawrz explained. “Apekin’s design has already sparked engagement within the community. The motivation behind this proposal is to continue building on the momentum generated by Apekin and explore the development of a captivating mascot that truly represents the spirit and supports the goals of the ApeCoin ecosystem, adding a valuable asset to the brand. A mascot plays a crucial role in brand identity by making it recognizable and memorable, adding infinite opportunities for further brand development. Aside from that I would like to inspire and break the ice, inviting other artists to contribute to the ApeCoin brand as well, fostering a collaborative and inclusive community.”

In total, AnnieRawrz is asking the ApeCoin DAO to allocate $5,750 USD for AIP-289.

With the money, AnnieRwarz will develop a style guide for the mascot, create 15 Discord emojis/stickers, 10 graphic assets for marketing purposes, a 3D model of the mascot, and transfer all ownership of the mascot to the DAO. AnnieRawrz anticipates that the creation of the $Ape mascot will take 3-4 months.

The window to vote on AIP-289 is currently open and ApeCoin DAO Contributors have until next Wednesday, August 16th, to cast their coins.

Fascinating post, and I share your viewpoint. However, it's important not to underestimate small companies or freelance designers who are capable of creating outstanding projects independently. This is particularly true considering that new age images are available to help discover the essential elements of vector graphics.
