The footwear brand teamed up with six typographic artists to support China's first Design Week in Beijing.

In coordination with Beijing's Design Week, Converse hosted Off Canvas, a bold street exhibition spotlighting six international and local typographic artists “culling from the diverse worlds of graphic design, art, and graffiti.” Artists that participated include Neville Brody, EINE, Benny Luk, Ying Yonghui, SHOE, and Nod Young.

To further promote the art works, Converse created a series of short films in October of 2011.
