The Design approach for the Man-O-Kriya Well-Being Kit centers around creating a holistic and culturally resonant experience. Integrated with Ayurvedic principles with Meditation to craft a kit that addresses emotional well-being comprehensively. Emphasizing on a multi-sensorial journey, a harmonious color palette of red, green, beige, and sky blue was selected which symbolize energy, balance, simplicity and tranquility. Each element— from the Ayurveda Supplement Bottle and Affirmation Diary to the Chanting Box and Aromatic Candle— is designed to evoke relaxation, mindfulness and affirmation. By combining traditional wisdom with contemporary design, Man-O-Kriya offers a unique, nurturing path to emotional resilience and balance.

The Design incorporates three key words: “relax”, “breathe” and “affirm” which further associate with the tone of voice for the brand. Based on the keywords, visual elements based on Semiotic style were created like the waves, peacock, leaves etc.

relax – Just as the Ocean is deep and calming, the waves from the Ocean are splendid and serene. The waves thus produce a relaxation effect and perfectly match with the word “Relax”.

breathe – The Leaves and the trees in a forest are refreshing and produce a tremendous supply of oxygen for people to breathe. The Leaf thus represents “breathing” and is perfect fit for the word “Breathe”.

affirm – The peacock serves as a reminder to embrace one’s unique qualities and strengths. In essence, the peacock’s symbolism aligns closely with the concept of affirmation, as both convey themes of confidence and self-expression.
