  • In this section you should construct a visual essay in Powerpoint, which you should subsequently upload to www.slideshare.netThe visual essay should consist of at least 10 images (1 per slide) which you would use to inform your design interpretation. Each image should be accompanied with notes which consider the Semiotics of the images, what they signify and how you might use these to inform your design. These images will set the scene for your interpretation, so think about how language, metaphor etc., feeds into your selection of sources. The work earlier in the term should help this process.Key Resources.Chandler, D., 2002, Semiotics for Beginners, Online via NOW.Barthes, R., 1967, The Fashion System, Berkeley: University of California PressBarthes, R., 1972, Mythologies, New York: Hill & Wang
