Le Nouveau Penser logo
The “Nouveau Penser” logo is inspired by the novel “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
His passion for flying leads the young Jonathan to break all the flock rules and so become an outcast. This passion will cause him to lead an extraordinary life.
Basically, this is the “Nouveau Penser’s” message. You are responsible for yourself. Be who you want to be, do what you want to do and know you can do it!
The bird in the logo is the gull that takes flight. The circle, broken by his wings, represents the rules from which he escapes and the triangle represents Divinity.
