As a part of Converse’s continued commitment to creativity, we partnered with the LIVE digital design tournament Cut&Paste as a global sponsor for 2010, and have again in 2011.
Cut&Paste is an international, on-site, real-time, design competition between artists, designers, illustrators, and creatives in the disciplines of 2D, 3D, and Motion Design. It’s like a DJ battle, but with art, animation, and design.
The 2010 motion design competition crowned Jake Guttormsson as the champion. Through our partnership with the competition organizers, and as a part of the grand prize, Converse commissioned Jake to produce a motion graphics piece highlighting both his immense talent and dedication to his craft. A big thank you to Jake, for letting us into his weird and wonderful brain with this amazing clip, which is a finished piece of art that also documents the process he took to get there.
We look forward to our continued partnership with Cut&Paste in 2011, helping them to inspire creativity around the world! Check out some of the other 2010 Motion Design Champs from a select group of the 16 tournament cities.
