Client: Minkisi

Business: Musical Group

Design Considerations: Minkisi is the plural form of Nkisi. These were ritual figures from the Congo Basin in Central Africa, believed to contain spiritual power and a connection to the dead. Those made of wood, were decorated with metal and other ornaments.

Using this understanding as my starting point, I invented three different figures to replace the 'I's' in the word: having the effect of reinforcing the words meaning, adding a visual element to the name and finally, representing the three members of this musical trio.
