What inspires you? Behind everything we do, everything we create, and everything we love, there is a story that adds a layer of inspiration, a context, a reason… a Backlight. Backlight.org is an eye-popping oasis for the creative, meaningful part of your life.
Backlight.org was founded by Brad Wolfe and Jonathan Lipps, two song-writers/humanists from Stanford who had grown tired of shallow Tweets and quick status updates and believed there could be an online community founded on something of more beauty, substance, and heart.
Search Backlight’s list of “inspirations” to find thousands of stories, videos, artwork, songs, doodles, poems, photos — and their often incredible backstories. Backlight.org has worked with organizations like Stanford University, Santa Clara University, and the d.school and continues to spread creative inspiration worldwide.
