Minaxi is a feminine name of Indian origin meaning "fish-eyed". It is derived from the Sanskrit terms mina ("fish") and akshi ("eyes"). A majority of design decisions mimic the idea upon which Minaxi's music is written. The Devanagari version of the identity, designed by my friend, frequent collaborator and former Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) classmate Ninad Kale, exists because the lyrics are in English and Hindi.
The symbolism for the band’s logo references astrology (I’m a triple water sign), Chinese philosophy and Eastern spirituality (the yin/ yang or the thought that seemingly opposite forces are actually one). The primary colours are gold, black, white and grey.
Minaxi’s show posters double as typeface specimens. The above posters contain two of my typefaces–Minaxi Condensed and Chamberlin Ultra Condensed.
