Examples Of Design Or Advertising Using The Apparatuses Of...
TDN 2002 RESEARCH ESSAY
Critically compare and contrast two to three examples of design or advertising using the apparatuses
of semiotic analysis.
Zhaoqing Wan

Semiotic is a linguistic, it is a sign that can be applied to everything, which signs are the
interpretation of the proper social situation and general human beings. As Berger mentioned in his
article, Saussure suggested, semiotic can be interpreted as signifier and signified, signifier is the
objet itself and signified is the concept, which codes is to help audience to understand. (Berger,
1994) Signs in everyday life is a communication, it is to tell a truth or a lie, in the 21st century
design, the developed of mass–media led advertisements and ... Show more content on

For designers, study of signs is very important, Bauhaus and Ulm both believed that understand
semiotics is the basic step before making a design, (Berger, 1994) (Markgraf, 2012) advertisements
ask audiences to understand the message but for design, is opposite, designer has to understand what
costumers need and also, what message they want to added in.
In the advertisements, Aynsley has mentioned that it turns costumers to consumers, the magic
language used in the advertisement which is the signifier that hided under the signified has create a
utopia for people, the code used in advertisement is always forcing costumers to buy under
commercial purpose and the message used in it is always considering to be understand by a wide
range of people instead of create a sign for certain cultural contents. (Aynsley, 1987)
Blogger (2010)
From Clinique 'Derma white clinical brightening essence' advertisement, it has the product, a peeled
egg and some texts. Start from the denotations in this essence advertisement, Clinique used white
for the signifier color for this serum and by put their product on the left to give their costumer a
straightforward idea of how it will be look like, they used the texts explain to their costumers what
this product is about, a brightening essence. The used of variety signifiers help costumers to see the
brand and product name in the most obvious way. But what is the message in this

The Trichotomy Of Signs
Child highlights within his semiotic studies the unseen messages that carry a significant amount of
cultural, political and historical meanings. Photographs, numbers, words and colours and how they
are positioned in a small scale delivers valuable messages to the "reader". To analyse the stamps,
Child discusses Peirce three part typology "The Trichotomy of Signs", Index, Icon and symbol in
which all three can work individually and blend together to deliver a symbolic meaning to the
reader. (Child, 2005 p. 114). Both stamps presented above are unique in delivering information
about Australia; they are also part of a commemorative series of stamps, which follow the
same/similar positioning of index, icon and symbol. Positioned in the background,

Semiotics Approach To Representation Analysis
Part 1
1. The name given to the approach of understanding representation as a sign system which has been
developed by Saussure is called Semiotics.
2. The Semiotics approach to representation is based around three central ideas: The sign, signifier
and signified. The signifier is the actual object or material you are observing, using any of your
senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste), it can be anything (text, music, images et cetera). The
signified is what you think of, feel or how you react when you see or hear it. The combination of
these is what makes up the sign, the actual thing being observed and what it evokes in you(Hall
1997: 31). For example, a traffic light (Hall 1997: 26). It utilizes three different colours (red, amber
and ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
One example of a system of control is the punishment system. Multiple sources are available on the
subject matter both in legal and everyday circumstances (Hall 1997: 50). These sources impact how
society views prisons and prisoners, therefore affecting how prisoners are treated and how they are
punished. Resulting in them being considered as less human than the rest of the community.
Foucault discusses this in Discipline and Punishment, speaking about how prisons have changed
from being public, with public punishment (torture) and execution, to private (isolated and
individual) (Hall 1997:

  • 8. Essay on Using Semiotics for Branding In today's world an individual is bombarded with brands from companies all around the world. These companies start with an idea and most of those ideas develop into a brand. Brands rely on the use of semiotics, "the science of signs" (Ryan and Conover 25), to relate to consumers or interpreters. They also relay on the connotation and denotation of the signs as well as the colors being used. When it comes to the entire package of a marketing plan and branding a company or product, graphic designers need to look at how to create the brand from a visually and culturally pleasing aspect. A brand is mostly based on a semiotic design that uses a trademark image and colors that relate to a group in a cultural setting. When it comes to branding, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... There are many strategies that graphic designers and marketing directors use to create a logo for a company in order to form a brand. One logo strategy is to create an image that is familiar to individuals even if it's an image that has never been seen before. Subjective familiarity is the "perception or feeling of familiarity, whether or not it is based on previous exposure" (Henderson and Cote 17). A critical finding in logo strategy is that cultures are homogenous in their response to design. "Gestalt psychology suggests that "good design is determined by culturally held beliefs" (Henderson and Cote 18). It may be difficult for an individual from an outside culture to understand a specific design. In one culture, the meaning of a sign can be completely opposite of the culture in which it is used, i.e. the use of the thumbs up signal. In graphic design, semantics and pragmatics play an integral role in the development of a logo. According to Steven Skaggs, "semantics investigates meaning, or more properly, the relationship between the sign and its referents as interpreted.... Pragmatics studies the relationship between semiosis and the interpreter, or interpreting group" (37). This means that an image may be interpreted differently by one individual. This is usually based upon the person's background and/or culture as well as their physiological demographic.

  • 12. Why Semiotics Is A Useful Method For Analysing Advertisements Explain why semiotics is a useful method for analysing advertisements. Straight away when thinking of signs one would automatically think road signs, star signs or even pub signs however signs can also be drawings, paintings and photographs as well as words, sounds and body language. The study of signs and symbols is also known as semiotics. Ferdinand de Saussure was a Swiss linguist and semiotic whose ideas laid a foundation for many significant developments; He is one of the founding fathers of semiotics which he called "semiology". Semiology also looks into the use of signs and their interpretation. Semiotics are frequently used in advertising to signify an advertisers message through the use of signs and symbols for example it plays a significant role on catching the targets audiences eye by the placement of pictures, texts and logos. The use of semiotics is very important for a successful advert. Saussure offered a two–part model of a sign, he defined a sign being composed of two parts for example the signifier and the signified. According to Saussure the signifier was the representation, the word or the image, where as the signified was the meaning, the concept in which is associated with the signifier. This is why semiotics is so useful in advertisements because a sign straight away has a connotation behind it and can give away the message straight away to its audience for example the signifier is always going to be signified.

Importance Of Semiotics To The Cultural Aspects Of Philosophy PHILOSOPHIES OF QUANTUM PHYSICS AND OF EDUCOLOGY Introduction In the Introduction, the philosophy of quantum physics and the philosophy of educology will be characterized in respect to five established cultural aspects of philosophy , i.e. in respect to the aspects: (1) of ontology as philosophy of what exists, (2) of metaphysics as philosophy of what exists and is real, (3) of epistemology as philosophy of what knowledge is, (4) of logic as philosophy of inquiry entailing an epistemology, (5) of axiology philosophy of what value, and, in respect; to semiotics as the science of the semiosical process, whereas the semiosical process is a naturally and culturally determined socially oriented process, involving symbols as to their meanings (symbol–meaning) and signs as to their significance (sign–significance). The Importance of Semiotics to the Cultural Aspects of Philosophy From the perspective of the author of this paper, semiotics is the science of the semiosical process, whereas the semiosical process entails what is alluded to when John Dewey states that: "I shall. . . connect sign and significance [sign–significance], symbol and meaning [symbol– meaning], respectively, with each other, in order to have terms to designate two different kinds of representative capacity.

The basics of Semiotics were laid down by a Swiss linguist, Ferdinand De Saussure (1857–1913). "He used the word to describe a new science which he saw as 'a science, which studies the life of signs at the heart of social life' [Saussure cited in Underwood] He considered that a sign had two essential elements: the signifier and the signified.

First, the articles mentioned that the viewer determines the meaning of the advertisement or the viewer interprets the advertisement.

Originally, Barthes termed connotation as myth because he believed that connotation is a product of society. Connotation is not the true meaning of the sign but a meaning that society has decided to give that sign and is a shared meaning (Griffin, 2012). Barthes wrote that connotation makes what is cultural seem natural (Barthes, 1985/1988). Connotation is what makes habit become ritual. To better understand these two aspects of signs, we have to understand how the system of what makes up a sign affects its meaning. Connotative and denotative signs are formed in different ways. Denotative signs are simply the signified and signifier put together (Griffin, 2012). Connotative signs, however, are a bit more complex. Originally there is the physical signifier and the signified, which together make up the denotative system (Griffin, 2012). This denotative sign is what the signifier in the connotative system is made up of (Griffin, 2012). To this signifier is added a new signified, which is a shared meaning that has been created by society (Griffin, 2012). This combination creates the connotative of mythical system. It is in this mythical system that signs derive their meaning (Griffin, 2012). Through these systems which society has created, signs are interpreted and evaluated by the shared meanings of society (Griffin, 2012).These mythical systems are not meant to hide the original meanings of messages but rather ...

Semiotics influences signs by modifying the way we see them when certain aspects are changed or enhanced to convey or evoke certain meanings or feelings, when words are italicized or bolded our eyes immediately focus more on them than the other words, when messages are presented to us in strange or noticeable fonts we are drawn to them, they stick in our minds, they make a certain impact. As Ferdinand de Saussure stated and is quoted on a University of Vermont educational website, "All signs have two aspects: the signifier and the signified. The signifier is any material thing that signifies, e.g., words on a page, a facial expression, a picture, a bit of graffiti. The signified is the concept that a signifier refers to. In most cases the signified is in relation to the signifier in order to ensure the signified is able to relate to it's signifier. I/e, men smoking looking as though they are enjoying themselves, the signifier is the man smoking the cigarette, and the man, and the cigarette, seeking to signify men or masculinity" (Saussure p.2). The same is applied to political signs, in relation the creator of the sign seeks to put emphasis on something that they wish the audience to connect the main idea of their sign too. For example at The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, many protestors utilize symbols in order to connect their beliefs or ideas to a grander concept. In one protestors sign, a ...

This, additional element is the understanding of the relation between signifier and signified, he referred to this as the interpretant. The interpretant sheds light on the relationship between signifier and signified. Pierce admonishes that a sign or signifier must be interpreted in order to exist.

Umberto Eco attests that "semiotics is concerned with everything that can be taken as a sign (Eco 1976, p. 7)". Semiotics, rather than dealing with the organization of signs, has to do with how meaning is produced, what makes an utterance meaningful, how it signifies and what precedes it on a deeper level to result in the manifestation of meaning.

According to certain mythologies, Barthes main interest was in semiology. He is highly skilled at finding, manipulating and exploiting theories and concepts of how things come to mean before anyone else does so. The basics of semiotics and how it is applied to many forms of imagery and context is applied through Barthes theory. This theory consists of three orders of specification, denotation, connotation and myth (Chandler 2006,18). Within semiotics, denotation and connotation are terms describing the relationship between the signifier and its signified, and an analytic distinction is made between two types of signifiers: denotative signified and a connotative signified (Panofsky 1970a,51–3). This meaning includes both denotation and connotation through the action and reaction of the representation of signs. Denotation is described as the definitional, 'literal' or 'obvious' meaning of a sign according to the art historian Erwin Panofsky (Hasenmueller 1978). The denotation of a representational visual image is what all viewers from any culture and at any time would recognise the image as depicting (Hasenmueller 1978).

Roland Barthes developed a range of semiotic tools to analyse the cultural meanings that are conveyed in advertising images, in a particular context. Using these semiotic tools, select and analyse four magazine adverts. This essay will discuss Roland Barthes' ideas and his semiotic tools, and will also look at how Barthes uses these tools to analyse images and how they make us think. Roland Barthes was a French philosopher who wrote many books about the literary theory and semiotics. His writing has influenced and helped shape many postmodern theories. His most famous book "Death of the author" explains his theory on visual analysis. Barthes says that when we see an image, the author or creator of the image does not matter. Each individual person will find a meaning from that image. We all analyse images on our own. The meaning of an image lies with the audience. The author is not the authority on the meaning of the image. Although we are all quite similar in what we get from an image, different people will get different meanings. This is due to the experiences we have had throughout life. Barthes says "no object has a natural meaning." (Barthes, 1967 p.25) Meanings are defined by culture, so for example, if in the UK someone does the 'thumbs up', we take this to mean that everything is okay, but if someone does it whilst standing at the side of the road, it means they want a lift, and in scuba diving it means you want to go up to the surface.

  • 49. Heinz Ketchup: A Semiotic Analysis The use of semiotics is widespread in the world of advertisements as advertisers can use the impulsive human nature of unconsciously giving meanings to things to their advantage. They let people know everything there is to know about the product and even more without creating a meaning, but rather by inviting us to develop a meaning based on the codes that have been imprinted in our minds (Hidden Language). The audience is very important in advertising as he or she will look at a signifier and bring his or her own meaning to it. Semiotics is very convenient for advertisers as they can use the information that has been already stored in our brains to convey their message. They do not have to explain everything in their advertisements, all they have to do is to "strike a cord that resonates with what we already know" (Berger). ...

There are several reasons why this commercial of Paulaner Weissbier is considered to be suitable for a semiotic analysis. Firstly, the fact that the commercial basically narrates a story indicates a certain relevance of semiotics.

Semiotics in Art History The Oxford English Dictionary defines semiotics as ''[the] science of communication studied through interpretation of signs and symbols as they operate in various fields, especially language." Semiology is characterized as ''the science of signs which studies the life of signs within society.'' Signs include, among others, sounds, images, words, odors, objects; they are concepts that stand for something else in a system of signification. They allow us to communicate a concept or an idea while it is physically absent. In art history, the simplest description of semiology consists of the translation of an image into words.

This idea is intrinsically related to the concepts of the sender and the viewer, which will be discussed in the next sections of this paper. The second issue discussed by the art historians is the sender of a work. In this section, Bal and Bryson define and differentiate the composition of the ''artist'' of a work. First, there is the concept of the sender as an individual, or J. Bloggs, as they call him. J. Bloggs stands for the name of the individual, ''a designation, not a description;[...] it does not assign any particular characteristics to its bearer''(p.181). The second aspect of the sender is the author, which is ''in the works, in a body of artifacts and in the complex operations performed on them''(p.181). It is the notions of enframement that distinguishes J.Bloggs from the author, which is what Bal and Bryson identify as ''an elaborate work of framing, something we can elaborately produce rather than something we simply find'' (p. 181). The art historian, Culler, explains that authorship is given, not produced, as he states that ''what counts as authorship is determined by interpretative strategies''(p.181). Thus, in simpler terms, the author or artist could be produced in the sense that his attributed works and other interpretable material, and ultimately produce a conception.

(Structuralism). The meaning of semiotics is the study of signs and symbols and their use or interpretation. (Structuralism). Therefore structuralism focuses more on the pattern and the framework while semiotics focuses on the symbolization in the book The Adventures Arzola 2 of Huckleberry Finn. One of the struggles with this criticism is that the framework is based on a few philosophers ideas on how the structure should fulfill the base line or genre of all literary work. Structuralist prefer the focal point to be on the formal features that allow the meaning to come about, not so much the meaning or content itself as much. The way Ferdinand De Saussure likes the framework to be is that there is no necessary connection between words and the thing.(Structuralism and Semiotics).

Through the use of a semiotic analysis, it can effectively help to study how signs used in advertisements connote different myths and ideologies. This idea of semiotics is proposed by Ferdinand de Saussure and Charles Peirce who both suggest that signs are used to conceptualised the world by communicating meanings and being the means of access to thought or reality which individuals have (Bignell, 1997). A sign is the combination of its signifier and signified for which the signifier is the vehicle or written marks that are used to convey a word whereas the signified is the concept that is evoked by the signifier (Bignell, 1997). These meanings and thoughts relate to the way individuals perceive and understand the real world beyond the advertisements. Therefore, this essay will adopt a semiotic analysis to deconstruct the signs, myths and ideologies in the DKNY 'Be Delicious' perfume print advertisement and ultimately examines the messages that the advertisement wants to bring out. This advertisement encodes two major significatory structures in which I will first examine how it connotes the myth of women as primal temptress and the myth of feminine beauty.

Signs and symbols are hidden throughout television shows and movies, especially in crime dramas like NCIS.

In one particular episode entitled "Missing," a Marine, Bill Atlas, disappears from a bar where, just moments before, he was having a paranoid conversation with a reporter. Before leaving, Atlas finishes a drink brought to him by the bartender, who says it's from a secret admirer. He goes outside to smoke a cigarette and before he could even light it he losses consciousness.

This is seen when he struggles to explain to Stradlater his descriptive composition assignment. Holden failed to describe a room or house, and instead described the baseball glove. Holden gives Stradlater the composition and the conversation flows as follows, " This is about a goddamn baseball glove." "So what?" I said. Cold as hell. "Wuddya mean so what?"

Chords tow, three and five are the same; the fourth chord can be described as a "neighbor chord". Also the first chord and fifth chord was same. That means the riff would repeat all the times. Therefore, the musical expression of this song could more represent dance and hit. Furthermore, compare to "white room" the movement of this song also represents kick and jump.

Human senses will catch the signal and then pull the impression to the brain, which leads to a conclusion of subjective meanings, depending on the perspective of each audience (Desamba 2011). Semiotics is an investigation into how meaning is created and how meaning is communicated. Its origins lie in the academic study of how signs and symbols, both visual and linguistic, create meaning (Signsalad n.d.). Our actions and thoughts, or what we do automatically, are often governed by a complex set of cultural messages and conventions, dependent on our ability to interpret them instinctively and instantly. For instance, when we see the different colours of a traffic light, we automatically know how to react to them. We know this without even thinking about it.

In order to analyse the image and behavioural ideology of the teenage girl offered within teenage magazines, I will attempt to investigate some semiotic codes within More! and 19.

Even from using the first few words of the performance of Decadence using signifier and signified we can start to add up whats occuricing in the scene in front of us. "what would monsieur and madame like" (reference from steven berkoffs book) is our signifier, what is signified is that there is a conversation occuring between two individuals either he's asking the question or being asked himself, in addition they are sitting in a suit and a dress. so its probably a good guess that they are at some type of restaurant/cafe, and they are talking to there waiter.
