An Enterprise Combining Travel, Graphic Design and Social Good

Founders: Ivanna Hreshchuk & Anna Afshar

“We travel, we immerse ourselves in the various cultures of disadvantaged communities, we create unique art that depicts the beauty of the places we’ve travelled and a portion of the proceeds go back to those communities. We invite you to join us to remote areas of the world where we take you on a journey that you can follow through our travel blog and physically experience through our art. Not only do we hope to transport you to these places in the world, we also hope to enable people to give directly back to the communities they are experiencing.”
