Converse Converted

Apparently, last year, TMDG became one of the biggest and baddest events in South America for graphic designers.

It took place in Mar del Plata, Argentina, and more than 5000 visitors attended during three days.

Before the event, designers were invited to ¨customize¨ Converse sneakers and the result was more than 100 beautifully converted sneakers.

The main idea behind this invitation was about the power of ¨free expression¨ but also a possible new design for the brand. One was going to be considered the winner and produced in this year collection.

While I couldn't find the winner, here you can see some of the finalists, or to be more accurate my favorites among the finalists:

1. The "Bunny Attack"

2. The "Green Conscious" one

3. The "Girl in Hiding"

4. The Darky
