Meet Timothy Scott of Childhood Visionary in West LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Timothy Scott.

Timothy, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’ve always been a creative person, but could never come up with a concrete way of expressing that. In early 2019, I began noticing how many creative individuals were settling for lifestyles that don’t make them happy, simply because of society. Childhood Visionary is a brand that I created, acting as a safe haven for creatives going through the struggles of accomplishing their dreams. The name comes from the freedom of thought that we all have when we were younger before society had such a prominent impact on our train of thought (hence “Childhood”).

A visionary is the type of person who has their eye on the end result at all times, no matter what it takes to get there. Many of us become discouraged dealing with obstacles and setbacks on the way to the finish line and unfortunately leads to us letting go of that dream all together. My brand serves to not only provides timeless streetwear pieces, but also as a safe haven for creatives, entrepreneurs, and anyone else pursuing their dreams, with a helpful reminder that they aren’t alone.

We launched at the top of the summer in 2019, releasing our most popular designs: a five-color logo tee, as well as our “Take the Leap” design. I didn’t expect to get such positive feedback so soon, but to say the least, it went very well. Following this release, we were invited to be a part of a pop-up shop in Los Angeles, hosted by close friends Lenny Washington & Bianka Gravillis.

There, we sat alongside some amazing new brands, Valsky, Ambiguous Minds, The Code Studios, and Auntie Mami, networking and selling our pieces. This was the first day we learned what an amazing feeling completely selling out feels like, and it sparked a new flame. Following the pop-up shop, we hit the drawing board, developing our “Venturous” graphic, which released early fall. Now, our newest collection is in production, which released last January 19, 2020 at 10am PST, first release of the new year and I couldn’t be more excited.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I’d say our hardest struggle has been marketing, as well as finding the most cost-efficient way to develop our pieces. It’s more of a trial and error type of thing, so the struggles really aren’t setbacks, rather lessons learned. Marketing is something I am still working on, learning how to cater to our specific audience, as well as creating content to be shared while working on the next release. It’s all a learning experience though, and consistency is key.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Childhood Visionary – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Childhood Visionary is a brand specializing in streetwear apparel. We are known for our graphic tees but are expanding to new horizons as we speak.

As a company, I’d say our diversity is what makes us most proud. Myself, along with my partners, Jared Harrell, Peyton Burnett, and Austin Williams, all bring new and unique ideas to the table, so the designs will only get better. While Childhood Visionary is a streetwear brand, what makes us most unique is our versatility. We are aiming to embark on the film journey, along with the clothing, providing exposure for not only ourselves but others around us.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Our latest collection is in production as we speak is releasing on January 19, 2020 at 10am PST. I’m most excited about the growth to come, and bigger and better design ideas myself and my team develop.
