Publication design for Flexing Muscles, a bilingual essay by Ravikumar Kashi on the phenomenon of political flex banners on the streets of Bangalore — a medium through which self-proclaimed sene (‘armies’) in the state of Karnataka express themselves.

Presented in English and Kannada in two distinct sections (Kannada title: ಸೇನಾ ಪರ್ವ, i.e ‘Age of the Sene’), the book examines the visual language of these banners and contextualises them within a changing city, “one increasingly attuned to aggression and vulnerability.”
