That art school word ‘aesthetic’ comes in handy again. The look and feel of Converse gets funneled through this crew. From Events to Online to Retail to Photography to Messaging, Brand Design is the artistic hand on the color wheel. If you’re looking for a motley band of artists and thinkers, then look no further. We all know what “aesthetic” means, too. We just don’t use it because it’s cheesy.
