The watercolor effect is meant to evoke the hand-crafted, artistic expression central to the Art of Living’s mission: to raise the care for the basic needs of the human person to the level of an art. The butterfly symbolizes the spirit of the high school girl: she is young and free, soaring to a positive future, but she is still small. Her potential is not yet fully realized.
In the design, the watercolor droplets the butterfly seems to leave beneath her, are the subtle and sometimes hidden efforts she has made to develop skills in service. These fall into a beautiful spray of color and energy, a path of love she leaves behind as she takes her new skills into a life of service to others.
Orange: the color of social communication and optimism. It was printed on watercolor paper to evoke the handcrafted, artistic expression central to the AOL mission. Yellow: is a younger version of orange. It is eager, optimistic and cheerful. Purple: a color of evoking vision, imagination and creativity. Green: a color of leadership, balance and growth.
