Miyãmgi Kholão

Journal cover design


Miyãmgi Kholão is an upcoming academic journal to be published by Advanced Research Consortium Manipur (ARECOM). It will be published in Manipuri and will feature writings and artworks dealing with various issues related to the region. The publishers wanted a design which the youth can relate to and which also reflects the indigenous culture of Manipur.

We created a template which is primarily defined by the typography of the journal title rendered in a bold design. Each issue will feature a unique illustration related to the theme of the particular issue. The illustration for the inaugural issue is based on the journal's motto: Sprout of consciousness. Its style is influenced by illustrations found in various historic manuscripts of Manipur.
