Hello, I wanted to discuss the idea of a Status Identicon. This could be developed on the ERC721 token so each identicon is unfungible. The Identicon could be generated by entering in basic info or custom created by the user within a square grid system similar to Paint where you have a set color palette and fill in squares.
Using steganography, the icon could then also replace a QR code and resolve to a user’s ENS name having a useful functionality. This is purely for branding / user experience not to be seen as a security measure or encryption.
The simplicity of the design language allows for easy storage on the blockchain. There comes some questions around the freedom and constraints of the design system;
- Does it have its own distinct language that is recognisable back to Status?
- Is it self expressive and fun?
- Does it communicate what the we are all about (conceptually)?
- Is there a connection between the Status logo and the user avatars?
The initial thinking was to use the ‘speech bubble’ as a visual container and the user visualisation within the speech bubble.
The system visualises (conceptually) a continuous dialogue between the (community) and (individual)
This space allows for enough room for expression/customization by the user while still being ‘supported’ by the container. This becomes a balance of a our logo and a user’s expression through Status.
Status and individuals should have an open dialogue together through interface, experience, logos, etc
Below you can see a quickly study done to illustrate this thinking
