BreathePeace.World is the name of our 'Peace Project'. It started as a practice that was embedded inside the idea behind an earlier published book called Aya (who is a curious independent little panda girl who searches for beauty and leads her to find her beautiful peaceful place right inside her own heart). We've taken that practice and made it the subject of a VR experience where Aya is a wisdom teacher projecting unconditional love and guides the viewer without words through an exercise that we call 'breathe peace'. as she breathes peace her heart center lights up and the trees all surrounding her breathe and light up in the same rhythm as her breath showing the interconnection we have with the trees in our world AND we always see participants instantly bring their own breath into alignment as well. This is an experiential learning that leaves a memory in the viewer's mind's eye that they are able to recall easily in the future to bring peace to themselves and others as needed. Our project, though not yet complete, was introduced to the world at the United Nations during General Assembly week. We plan on distributing it publicly through various tech platforms this spring (which are limited in distribution) but also directly for use in settings where peace is really necessary like inner city schools, hospitals and detention centers for example and have some partners already in place. Additionally we are going to publish a simple book to reach a wider audience. If you'd like to see more info go to our website http://www.breathepeace.world
All these media targets need a logo for the project so it needs to work for a book publisher, inside a game engine (Unreal and Unity) on a web page and on paper.
BreathePeace.World's audience is literally everyone of any age ....everywhere because everyone who is breathing can learn to breathe peace....BreathePeace.World is a virtual reality experience and book which illustrates how appreciation of beauty found in nature and a heightened awareness of our symbiotic relationship with trees can reveal within anyone an innate and masterful ability to breathe peace into daily life and into the world we share. BreathePeace.World models a simple practice (with breath) which can transform your lifetime into a peaceful lifetime, your inner world into a peaceful world and the world we share will be more peaceful.
In terms of a logo, it should be simple but elegant. Simple in terms of conveying the message of our project and it's slogan (the why). As somebody said when asked how simple. they answered 'simple like dirt, simple as the earth'. Elegant as in being uplifting in spirit and conveying the energy and power of the breath and the resiliency of our friends the trees. The logo should be 2-D and of complimentary colors as it will be positioned on top of the hollywood level graphic artistry of the background of the VR experience where it will be set against a sky of pale coral salmon orange as in early morning sunrise with clear blue skies above. You'll see the sky palette of the VR experience through any white or open space of the logo design
