Each new design in Imagine is referred to as a “chapter.” Chapter One, issued earlier this school year, was meant to establish the brand name and get the business started. Chapter Two, released just this month, is a black t-shirt with the word, ‘Imagine,’ written in small white letters on the front. On the back is the image of a dartboard with the quote, ‘It’s impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all.’ Josiah said the message is a good one for everybody.
“Get out of your comfort zone, chase your dreams, don’t be afraid to try something new. Make sure every time you put on that shirt you know to take chances. Know that life is too short to sit comfortably,” Josiah said. “At the end of the day with Imagine we plan to simply change people’s mindsets about life through clothing. We want to inspire people to do more than their limits. Because a human brain is limitless.”
Chapter Three is still under development and under wraps, but Josiah hinted that it will be “Godly” and provide “wisdom.”
And although Josiah plans to attend college in the fall to pursue a degree in business and communications, he hopes to continue the clothing line - to see how many chapters they can create and how successful the venture can be - with the possibility of mass production and even a brick and mortar or online store. All proceeds are currently invested back into the company to cover production costs and help grow the business.
“In my eyes, the world is a beautiful place, but there’s still so much hate in it,” Josiah said. “It’s a beautiful life; there’s so much to see and do and so many different perspectives. We all need a little waking up, a little motivation and inspiration.”

“We’re just three good kids with the same interests that want to make a difference in the world,” Josiah said.
