Events | Small Steps to Greatness…

Posted in Hard Work Pays Off, Whats goin on on September 25, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

I’m sure you guys have been wondering why the post have been slow on the website lately.  Well, we just moved locations and that definitely had us busy, not to mention we didn’t have internet the first week and half.  We have also been slightly greedy with footage due to the fact that we have been shooting for a documentary and didn’t wanna give much away.  The post seem slower on this site because of the fact that we strictly post our work/content the most.  We also have been busy working, shooting media, photoshoots, videos, etc.  We apologize for the slow post and we will be on top of the blog now.  Don’t forget to check out our lifestyle brand’s blog “Do You Not Them“.

EVENT | Happy Birthday Mateo! “Boycott Mateo” Event Recap

Posted in Events, Hard Work Pays Off, Spotlight, Videos, Whats goin on on September 24, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

It’s always good to be able to celebrate another year of life, but its even better when you celebrate it with your team, family, friends & supporters. Mateo isn’t really big on parties but this year we definitely threw him one for the memory bank. Seeing to how this would be the only time that our team will be able to go out and have fun due to the amount of work we have to do, we thought we would make our one day of a night to remember. A over capacity Club 101 at Cantina Lounge in Fullerton was packed with enjoyment. The photos can be found on the DOnUt Facebook so make sure you add it to retrieve them, & the HWPO Flickr for those who do not have a facebook. Big Thank You to Phil of Cheeky Bastard Photography for giving us a break and handling the photobooth! Also a thank you to United Virtuoso & a happy birthday to Kenny & Epic!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATEO!

SUPPORT: DOnUt “Soon Enough It Will All Make Sense”

Posted in Hard Work Pays Off, Whats goin on on September 24, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

A lot of stipulations and rumors have gone around about what DOnUt has really been up to & what we have been going through. We have laid low for the past few months because we are making a major transition into a business rather than a couple friends doing a clothing line. We have made a lot of big decisions in the past few weeks, we have seen people come and go, not to mention we have learned a lot of lessons in the whole growing process. Don’t worry though, we have some major projects in the works right now. Honestly, you can feel free to doubt anything we are doing, we thrive upon it. We stand for Do You, Not Them & we stay true to it. No matter what we will always do us and soon enough it will all make sense. We have chosen to take the quiet route to lead up to our new releases and projects. There has been a major growth in the industry & we are starting to believe that a lot of talk is cheap, so we decided that instead of saying “what we are about to do”… We are going to stay quiet and replace that statement with “This is what we have accomplished.” For the mean time, continue to check the blog, we will continue to make videos, keep the blog updated, and keep our supporters involved. This year I can truly say has been a blessing for the company & we are truly thankful for the loyal supporters who consistently check up on us, we have something special coming for them too. We didn’t go anywhere, we have just been busy.

Yes, we have had slow posts lately but we can explain!  We have been making some major moves and working on a huge project.  We also have been filming a documentary which has kept us from releasing certain footage!  Mateo’s laptop also went on a hiatus for a week so we are barely getting back into the stroke of things.  But you will not be unsatisfied when these projects show their faces!  Bare with us, we are gonna be updating more now, enjoy the video above with a couple previews of the month of August.  It’s grind time for HWPO/DOnUt so stay tuned!

Spotlight: Grast – New Lifestyle Boutique in New York City Subway

Posted in Hard Work Pays Off, Spotlight, Whats goin on on August 15, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

I think one of the dopest things you could possible imagine doing, being a brand or even just being a huge fan of the streetwear, art,  & skate culture would be opening your own shop,  But having it in a dope location is just a dream! I can’t stress enough how much I love the Subway system of New York, now I just liked it a little bit more!

Located within the mezzanine of West 42nd Street and 8th Avenue Station, a major transportation junction point that includes the Port Authority Bus Terminal, GRAST will offer many hard to find products, like 400% BE@RBRICKS by MEDICOM TOYS, and other graphic oriented items. In opening the shop, Andrade stated “I saw a void in the untapped market of the NYC subway and wanted to pay tribute to the history of the subway; including the NYC underground art scene and old school graffiti artists.” Similar to commuters in Tokyo, now their New York counterparts would not have to rush during their commute.

This was a fun and random night out with the bro’s. They busted out some dope tricks and left with no scar’s which is always a good thing leaving the skate park.lol But were slowly going to start putting our skate team back together again, so if you skate and your looking to be down with an official team, holla at us. Peace

Progression: August 2nd

Posted in Hard Work Pays Off, Videos, Whats goin on on August 4, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

This past  Monday we spent the day filling out paperwork for what we believe will become a major move for the companies.  We can’t tell you much because we’d rather make moves and show you what we have done, rather than say what we are going to do cause talk is cheap.  If we are blessed with this, mark my words… August 2nd will be a monumental and pivotal date that will change our lives.

Posted in Events, Hard Work Pays Off, Whats goin on on July 28, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

The event this past Saturday was a HUGE SUCCESS, tons of cars, tons of people, a lot of fun, with a great environment.  It was so big that the Cops had the come shut it down.  It started a little slow then all the sudden cars started rolling in like crazy, we ended up being short staffed due to a lot of no shows so we didn’t have time to get much footage of the event but we gonna get some footage from a friend.  The photo booth ended up getting some love special thanks to the EuroJerks and friends.  Another thanks Seth & Jason for taking some additional photos of the event.  Check out some pics below and the rest on our Flickr Account.  If you missed this event don’t worry, we have plenty more coming soon!
