Creative Design 2


Reason: The address I used to receive the payment was the address I used to SEND the proposal Fee with PIVXcentral. So it ended up going to that wallet and not mine. That proposal wallet had been discontinued, so Far-East and Eric tracked down the old wallet .dat file - loaded it up and BOOM! 3000 PIV!! Eric moved those funds +1 PIV as a test to our wallet and we’re good. Please vote down the CreativeDesign2 proposal, so that the next payments will go to my wallet and not the old one for security reasons. Sorry for the stress all and thanks to @! FarEast and @Eric_Stanek for tracking it down!

The Rhubarbarians ( are presenting this new proposal to support any creative design needed for announcements, events, web updates, for PIVX. We will also help fill in the gap in supporting Social media management, although it will be limited.

Same as last round, but we may be taking on a bit more creative to support new team members.
See the previous proposal for recent reports - Creative Design Plus

PLUS: In addition, we will come up with campaign creative to fill in the gaps between announcements and updates. These will include, but not be limited to sponsorship marketing, contests, General PIVX highlight creative, regional creative marketing support for other language groups. We get inundated by requests every week and this increase will go to help cover this to some level.

We will also continue to offer some skin-in-the-game, offering hours above and beyond the budgeted hours in the budget.

Typical designs work includes:

  • Announcements (Tech, exchanges, community, events, etc)
  • Web graphics updates (main, Ambassadors, PIVXplaces, PIVXSports, etc)
  • Campaign Creative
  • Project management

This is on top of all the Ambassador work were doing (privately funded) for local initiatives, meetups and larger event support for events like Seoul, Korea, Bogata Colombia, and Sao Paolo, Brasil.

We’ve been serving the PIVX brand and team since Dec 2016. We’ve stuck with it through good and bad times. We’ve offered help even when budgets were not paid out for various reasons and invested in Exchange additions and other Support needs along the way, donating thousands. Thanks!

With much Purple Love,
Chad Ballantyne and Design Team
