In light of the recent #CreateAtHome campaign from Converse, nss magazine has partnered with the brand presenting Illustration Lab.


#CreateAtHome is the first phase of Converse’s new brand campaign, a new way of working together with creative, basketball, and skateboarding communities to make content that fuels social channels and elevates emerging creatives on their platforms by showcasing and crediting their work. Inspired by the adoption of their products around the world and across cultures, with the aim to be the canvas of creative progress.

Illustration Lab is a new social challenge starting on Monday, May 18, where you have the opportunity to express your creativity through the illustrations designed by Ilaria Colombo on the Converse All Star Silhouettes such as the Run Star Hike, the Chuck 70 and the Pro Leather.

How can you participate? Just make a screenshot or download your favorite Converse silhouette illustration, you can also pick all three. Use it as a canvas for your creative expression and start coloring! If you want to color the live illustrations, you can download them at this link. Once you’re happy with howthey turned out, you can show us your work on Instagram by tagging @nssmagazine and @converse and using the hashtags #CreateAtHome and #WeAreAllStars. Three creatives will then review all submissions and select their favorite five of each silhouette, which will then be featured on nss magazine’s Instagram stories, giving everyone the chance to vote for their favorite creation. For each of the silhouettes, a winner will be selected, and they’ll receive a special reward.

You have until June 3rd to participate in the challenge and show your work.

All the participants will also have the opportunity to be featured on the Converse global Instagram channel.
