About The Event

An advertisement joins together a product or a service as a signifier, with a signified meaning which is carefully constructed. Visual metaphors are often used to catch the eye of the viewer, attract attention and communicate messages. Semiotics as a science that studies and analyses how meaning and signs work within a particular context can provide a design framework for understanding, constructing and extracting meaning in advertisements. With emphasis given on the concept of visual metaphor, workshop participants will be asked to produce visual metaphors in the context of advertising, and for a product, brand or service of their own.
