Christina wanted to create the logo for the Instituto Paulo Coelho and she wanted it to express the power of their project – which was simple at its core, but ambitious for its results. She wanted something that embodied all the power, energy and good will that they were putting into the project.
The inspiration came to her in a dream. She saw large flapping wings, protecting the Earth everyone on it. When she woke up, she immediately realised that her dream was about Saint Michael, the Archangel, who is often depicted as an angelic warrior, armed with sword and shield. The logo is Christina’s interpretation of this sword and shield and represents both strength (the sword) and protection (the shield).
A couple of years later, due to its power and symbology, that very same logo was adopted by Paulo on his official site and is now representing the image of the Warrior of Light, which appears in many of his online texts and publications.
