Globe International, Ltd., parent company to Hardcore Enterprises and Dwindle Distribution, is releasing a new coffee table book titled, ‘UNEMPLOYABLE, 30 Years of Hardcore, Skate and Street’. More than 700 pages of never-before-seen images and interviews, ‘UNEMPLOYABLE’ documents the early beginnings of Hardcore Enterprises through to modern day Globe and Dwindle.
‘UNEMPLOYABLE’ is the story of a bunch of misfits who chose to create a world to exist in, rather than conform to one in which they didn’t fit. Lead by Australia’s Hill Brothers, the group went on to become industry pioneers, forming the skate, street and surf company, Globe International.
“Clearly we were unemployable. To the outside that meant we were losers with juvenile hobbies and no future. To us, it meant not following a conventional life path. We wanted a grown up life that would match our teen lives: optimistic, innovative and fun. Turns out when you band people together with that ‘fuck convention’ mentality, it’s a powerful, creative and inspiring force". – Matt Hill CEO, Globe International, Ltd.
Globe, together with Hardcore Enterprises and Dwindle Distribution, recently celebrated ‘UNEMPLOYABLE’ launch events in Melbourne and Los Angeles. The photos on this page are from these two launches.
