The meaning of the word "manji" describes the ability to bring luck and benediction to those who use it. The Manji Designs logo represents an energy map or "bagua," which some Asian cultures use to identify specific areas that can be improved or enhanced.

Those areas, marked by "trigrams" or a series of lines that encircle the center, correspond to major areas of life: prosperity, reputation, relationships, health, creativity, children, knowledge, career, and friendship.

The yin yang represents balance and change, both of which must occur as they give rise to each other in turn. In many nations around the world, the color purple is associated with royalty, nobility, power, ambition, and creativity. Thus, a purple yin yang gives rise to all of those great things.

A majority of these concepts underscore how designer Brandon W. Mosley approaches his work.
