When people think of the world around us and how it came about people find themselves thinking of what man or business made what. However, nothing in this world is necessarily made without the help of God. 21- year old Palmer Williams & 20-year old Julian Gerald co-own the brand Godmadeglobal have taking that thought into their own hands and created a brand that expresses that very reality that nothing is made without the help of God. Their brand not only embodies the spirit of God but, embraces individuality , artistry , and style. These two are definitely on to something new and we here at ZealousInked are excited to see what they are working with!
