"Chini" means sugar in Hindi. Chini is a Devanagari and Latin display typeface (in progress) that I made as a part of my degree project at RISD. Chini was my first attempt at a Devanagari typeface.

Chini was inspired round-brush painted signs common in parts of north India.

This project was featured in Filipino Folk Foundry by Hardworking Goodlooking, available through Draw Down books.
