In Early 2015, I was challenged to take the talents and gifts that God gave me as a graphic designer to spend on personal projects or to devote to a specific task that would glorify God.
After praying and seeking God, it was clear that I was to start a apparel brand called CXXII Apparel, I used one of my favorite verses that had a lot of meaning and symbolism,
CXXII Apparel is based off of the verse,
"Do not be conformed to this world,[but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect" - Romans 12:2 -
God made it clear to me that I was to take apparel and create modern unique designs that would allow the everyday person to be lead into intentional conversations and to be a light in a dark world.
Since starting CXXII Apparel God has opened the doors to meeting and supporting like believers who are artists, skateboarders, tattoo artists, missionaries and bands and organizations that have partnered with us to grow and become to what we are today. It has truly been a blessing to use the talent that God has given me to see the support we have been getting.
We want to thank everyone who has been a part of CXXII and will continue to be a part of what we are doing for the kingdom.
