EVENT | Labels x DYNT x Brooklyn Projects | Hard Work Pays Off

Posted in Events on April 12, 2011 by hardwrkpaysoff



While I am sitting here contemplating what to write for this post all I can really think of is “hard work truly pays off.” Five years ago you would have found me camping out in front of the original Brooklyn Projects off Melrose on the hunt for the newest pair of sneakers. I’ve always looked up to shops like this while having dreams of entering this industry. I would stop by their shop often while in the area, but would have never thought that I would be doing a collaboration event with the same people 5 years later. I am honored to introduce & invite you to “Hard Work Pays Off”, A Lifestyle Photo Exhibit & Event. The title best explains the meaning behind it. The heads over at BPLabels came to me to do this event,Big shout out to Melloe Won, we truly appreciate the consideration. The event will consist of a small photo exhibit, a LIMITED COLLABORATION T-Shirt, music, giveaways, drinks, & good times. This event means a great deal to me personally as well as my team. The event will be located at Brooklyn Projects Pasadena, so all of our LA friends have no excuses. Make sure you come out, chill with us, & take some pics!

We’ve recently been asked to shot this upcoming car event, coming next  weekend. There is going to be a whole lot of fancy european car’s and a lot people, backed with a beach setting. We actually had a chance to hang out with the people putting the show together and we decided to put together a teaser video to get everybody ready, build a little awareness. We only had a few hours to hang with the guys, but we ended up putting together this short little video.

Coverage | Jae Bueno x Brooklyn Projects x HWPO

This past Saturday Mateo & Weezy headed out to Pasadena to shoot at the Jae BuenoBrooklyn Projects Photo Exhibit and collab tee release. Additional sponsors included Acrylick, Sino Tequila, and Labels. It was a honor to be able to shoot on behalf of a well known photographer. We were truly blessed to meet new people, hang out, enjoy some amazing photos, and of course the open bar all night! Jae is a really humble person who has a lot of talent when it comes to his photos. He has shot covers for such titles as DUB Magazine. Two collaboration tees dropped and sold like crazy, and the turnout was great, big ups to Melloe Won who put the event on with Jae. Shout out to Loud & Obnoxious/Glad Rags pals Brian & Vince, Mike from LAXtoJFK, and can’t forget our new friends Mandee Guns, & Briana, two up and coming female graphic designers all for some great conversation. Enjoy some of the photos below, the rest can be seen on the HWPO Flickr Account.

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!
