Posted in Hard Work Pays Off, Whats goin on on February 26, 2011 by hardwrkpaysoff

Last week we were asked to teach a workshops at the District Conference at La Sierra High School. It was a very enjoyable experience and we appreciate all the love we received from all the students. Were trying to make a difference the best way we can, the only way we can. Were going to try and keep this up and motivate the youth. We need the future full of positivity and goal minded individuals. We can have a great future, if we do your job and pave the way for the kids.

Quick Edits | Part 2 – Heatwaves, trainrides, and flat tires….

Posted in Videos, Whats goin on on October 1, 2010 by hardwrkpaysoff

The second part to Mondays adventures in Downtown LA we cruised the streets and battled the heat. We do these videos to show that we like to live spontaneously and we “Do Us” hence the name of the line. So many people these days thrive off of being too cool to do certain things, well we do what we want and “we don’t care what people sayyyyyyyy” -Kanye!

I bet you all thought Travis was just a legit businessman well thats where you are wrong… apparently he is a rap star now! Last week we dropped by the Vibe for the weekly Common Grounds event. They were having a beat showcase that a couple heads were spitting over which eventually turned into a open mic. Travis hopped up there and the Englishman went off! haha If you listen closely he’s still on his marketing adding a “Check the Blog” in his rhymes! Do I hear a possible mixtape! lol

This Monday Travis & I decided to take a break from driving & ride the train to Downtown LA for some riding & art gallery inspiration. Even tho it was a record breaking 113 in Downtown the heat didn’t hold us back from enjoying the day off. Here is part one to the day… Enjoy.

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.

Quick Edits | Don’t Worry We Are Alive!

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

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.

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!
