Animate your Dapp design: A guideline on our self-service no-code Dapp builder

Sep 15, 2023

We have been receiving a lot of inquiries about our Dapp design functionality, and in the past few weeks, we have been experimenting with some of the possibilities in designing a Dapp.While designing our platform, we made reference to how people would normally frame a painting.

According to Fine Art Tutorials:

Cut the matboard to the size of your painting using a mat cutter, or use a pre-cut matboard.
Mount the painting onto the mounting board with adhesive or tape.
Insert the glazing material into the frame.
Place the painting on the matboard into the wooden frame.

The matboard acts as your image frame. You’ll need to create a ‘cutout’ in the image, allowing your NFT to be displayed once it’s been verified. The shape of this cutout depends on your creativity; you can opt for a traditional design or let your imagination run wild.

The most important thing about your file is to make sure it supports alpha, and that’s why we always recommend PNG.

However, some people might want to get even more creative by making the frame move, and for us, this is the beauty of having an artistic community to provide feedback.

We are happy to share that we also support animated GIFs.

In addition to the usual methods of creating an animated GIF, such as Photoshop or After Effects, we also experimented with generative art using p5.js, and successfully exported the code as a GIF.

Here’s an example of what we’ve tried, and we’re confident that there’s so much more to explore.
