From the 1970s underground Melbourne skate scene to a company with a presence in over one hundred countries, Unemployable is the story of how three Australian brothers _ Stephen, Peter and Matt Hill _ founded one of the world_s biggest skate, street, and surf companies, Globe International. Throughout several iterations, the company was the first Australian skate shoe player; a creator and distributor of leading streetwear fashion labels such as Stüssy, Mossimo, Obey and Mooks; a producer of celebrated skate and surf movies; and from its earliest beginnings, a business that recognized the importance of connecting to the customer. Beyond the story of the Hill brothers, the book features a large cast of players who ran Globe_s debauched skate tours, infamous industry parties, exotic surf contests, frenzied stadium events, cutting-edge fashion parades and red-carpet launches. In addition, it includes over 190 exclusive contributions from Globe insiders and untold tales from the world_s most respected skaters and surfers including Rodney Mullen, Tony Hawk, CJ and Damien Hobgood, and many more. It also touches on Globe_s affiliations beyond action sports. A story about following your dreams, Unemployable will resonate with a broad range of readers beyond a purely skate/surf/street audience.
