Founded in 2009, Publish Brand was built on the idea of having a pressing dream, taking the necessary steps toward it, and sharing it with the world. Every person has aspiring dreams, yet every person also needs to make a living. It’s not whether or not someone has the time, it’s whether or not someone has the heart.
We all need to survive this dog-eat-dog world, but the ones that remain standing through the rubble of hardships, are the ones that persevere through daily life and have the heart to continue after hours toward the dream.
Publish is extending their cause and this idea by partnering up with like-minded creatives to get a closer look into how other dream chasers have published their goals, hence the launch of the Publish.ed Program.
The first featured Publishers of this program are the founders of Mr. Holmes Bakehouse. Established in San Francisco, the company has expanded to two locations in Los Angeles and now in Seoul, Korea.
Like Publish, design and quality are what drives Mr. Holmes to do what they do, serving their dream to the masses. On Saturday, April 7th – 5 PM PST, Publish will be hosting the launch of the Publish.ed Program at the Mr. Holmes location in Highland Park, CA to understand their stories, real struggles, true successes, and the parallels between both brand ideals.
The event will feature giveaways, free drinks, mouth-watering pastries, exclusive, collaboration merchandise and a live panel with both brands’ founders, followed by an open Q&A.

New England born company Timberland, worldly renown for their flawless craftsmanship in outdoor apparel and footwear, teamed up with Publish Brand to introduce a limited collection of the Chelsea boot and the classic Oxford silhouette.
With the concept of merging West coast style with East coast functionality, these pieces feature the best of both worlds.
To celebrate the recent release of the “Reinventing California” collection, the two brands came together at the beautiful Timberland shop in the heart of bustling downtown San Francisco on Saturday, November 7th.
Here, any inquires of the brands or the collaboration were happily answered by Publish’s CEO, Timberland’s Senior Footwear Director, and other members of the team. They took the time to sign shoeboxes for any desiring fans who purchased a pair from the collection, while surrounding guests roamed the shop enjoying complimentary drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the warm ambiance.
Available in the traditional wheat and timeless black leather, the shoes were elegantly displayed front of shop for those who wanted to get a real feel of the West coast design aesthetic and the premium East coast weather-proof quality. It’s no surprise that the shop sold out of the black Chelsea boot by the end of the 3 hour event.
As the successful night came to an end, the teams connected over bringing this collaboration to life, their experiences in the industry and truly getting to know one another. Not only is it important to share a sense of camaraderie among the brands, especially executing a huge project as “Reinventing California,” but to meet the people who support the vision and getting to know theirs is essential in continuing on “Today for Tomorrow.” The exchange of ideas, gratitude, love and support filled the shop, exuding positive vibes throughout.
Also, head to Timberland’s blog of “Reinventing California” to get a look at the Publish Brand Manager’s interview with this favored outdoor company. #TimberlandxPublish

We had the pleasure of bringing our release party with Vans out to Hawaii in late October. Being two California brands, we could have easily thrown a party out here in Los Angeles but why not try something new? We decided to bring it to big island of Oahu and we brought some friends with us to throw the party down! Check out some photos below from the event night. Thank you to everyone that came and supported us! We couldn’t have done it without you!
Dj Delve – Our friend Chris, known all over Hawaii, is known for taking all types of music and giving it a groovy funky feel you can dance to.
Salva – DJ, Producer, Engineer, Songwriter, SALVA is blurring lines between all types of musical boundaries. Pitchfork has described his work as “music that sounds like it comes from a place of genuine adventurousness.”
Dam Funk – Taking elements of modern soul, electric funk, hip hop, and dance ; Dam-Funk is here to move to feet and stimulate your mind. His rare blend of music has landed Dam hardcore fans worldwide
Just Blaze – Producer of some of your favorite songs by Jay-Z, Dipset, and Kanye West, Just Blaze is a one man hit making machine.
Finally all the buzz and excitement manifested into reality last weekend when the Publish Brand crew took flight to visit our account Kicks Hawaii for the official in-store release of the Publish x Vans OTW Breton Boot. The event kicked off at 1pm on the 26th of October in Honolulu with talented DJ Delve and Dam-Funk on the turn tables. With the entire store grooving to funky jams, the event ended on a great note with our team, the Vans team, Kicks HI, friends, family, Publishers and shoe lovers connecting about the highly anticipated release of this premium boot.
The intricate details of this Breton definitely need a second look. Don’t be fooled by the boot’s simple colorway. The excellent quality and execution of this boot is the reason why Kicks On Fire named the Publish x Vans collaboration “Boot of the Year.” The clean colors selected for the design compliments any outfit, making it a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. The black nylon upper is water-resistant for every day wear, while the white leather mid-sole contrasts the rest of the boot for aesthetic style. The back panel is reflective constructed of 3M materials to make you pop, when necessary. The perforated neoprene tongue and collar paired with an UltraCrush HD and Vibram sole adds great comfort to this exclusive fall boot.
After all the hard work put into supplying you with the all-new Legacy Jogger Pants, we wanted to see how our Publishers give the Legacy its name.
We’re looking forward to see all the different scenery, shoes, colors, styles, photography, and people wearing our very own creation. Don’t be afraid to go outside the box – that’s what we want!

After all the hysterical hype, the 15th annual desert festival finally comes to a bittersweet end. Nearly 180,000 crazed art and music fans flocked to this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California, with huge expectations of greatness. With astonishing art installations everywhere and the variety of world renown artists performing every second of the day, there’s no wonder why people drop hundreds, if not, thousands of dollars in preparation for this majestic cultural experience. We already cannot wait to see what 2015 will bring for our new generation of adventure-seekers.
Coachella has been a catalyst for reuniting musical groups in the past and is most definitely continuing to do so for our listening pleasure. Celebrating 20 years of their unique sound, Outkast launched their highly-anticipated tour on April 11th, headlining this festival and 40 more thereafter, throughout Spring and Summer around the world.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose…Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!” – Big Boi

This infamous festival also features various up-and-coming artists, giving them the opportunity for amazing exposure. Rising progressive music producers, The Glitch Mob, hands down rocked the Sahara stage from top to bottom, beginning to end. Their extraordinary sound pulsed through the dense sea of bobbing heads and hands. One of our favorite artists at Coachella 2014, definitely.

In the pursuit of happiness, Coachella attendees flew to the outdoor stage to see Kid Cudi perform. Because he has stopped hanging out with “Mary-Jane,” rumor has it that his music just isn’t the same. We beg to differ. He threw it down with new songs, old hits, and even brought surprise guest MGMT to feature in his set. Long live Mr. Solo Dolo!

A$AP Ferg had the whole crowd chanting “Shabba, Shabba!” No doubt the crowd was hyped up for this midday afternoon performance at the Outdoor Stage. Ferg had help from A$AP Rocky where he debuted a new untitled song. But wait, it didn’t end there. The A$AP Mob took stage with Skrillex to perform Wild For The Night.
The crowd was definitely happy and throwing up their hands for Pharrell Williams, who recently did a collaboration with the timeless French duo Daft Punk. Like every year, rumor had it that Daft Punk was definitely going to appear on stage with Pharrell. However, we didn’t see Daft Punk, but he did not disappoint with his special guest appearances. Over the two weekends, the cameos included: Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes, Usher, T.I., Jay Z, and The Jabbawockeez. That’s a line-up on its own!

If you haven’t heard of the musically talented Jhene Aiko, you definitely will hear of her in the very near future. She gained massive attention with her Sailing Souls mix tape in 2011, where she collaborated with Miguel, Drake and Kanye West. “I love me, I love me enough for the both of us…” As soon as Jhene began singing that catchy hook, the huge festival cameras came out to play. The crowd was on their toes in anticipation that Drizzy Drake would walk on stage to perform the rest of the song with her. Then a smooth, familiar voice announces, “This is my first time at Coachella by the way.” The sea of fans screamed and cheered in excitement. What an amazing surprise! It won’t be long until we see Drake’s name on the line up bill in the next year or two. Jhene also brought out Childish Gambino and Kurupt for her performance.
The Coachella Art and Musical Festival of 2014 has dwindled down to the end. With all the craze and hype buzzing around the great music and mind-blowing art installations, it’s hard to believe it’s all over – back on that daily grind. Until next year Indio! Thank you!
