As we move into our second year of creating mindful art, I think now is a great time to do some reflecting on our “why” motivation.  Beyond just existing, why do we do what we do?

As member of the global community, just like you, I believe that sharing the beauty that is this world and making human connections is one way to generate happiness, create compassion and find meaning.

RATIO creates inspiring photography from around the world and donates the profit back to a charitable organization within the country the photograph was captured because we want to create a collective consciousness through art, education and travel.

On that note, we came up with an idea to help further that connection between these vibrant visuals and the stories, thoughts and senses they touch.

Your purchases will now come with a blank card behind the certificate that is attached (on sizes 11x14 and up) on the back of your visual vibe. On this card we encourage you to write a note to yourself or the recipient if it is a gift.

Since we believe that the power of visuals always tells a story we want provide a place to document what this image means to you in this particular moment. As the years go by you can revisit the note, reflect and create new moments. Then if your visual vibe makes it into new hands years down the road there will be a timeline of people who have been influenced by that exact same piece.

We would LOVE to see what you come up with so don’t forget to post a photo on Instagram with #RATIOgivesback. We will happily give you 10% off your next purchase for sharing with us where your visual vibe landed.
