Basic semiotic theories are taught in most art schools as part of a contextual studies programme, but many students find it difficult to understand how these ideas might impact on their own practice. This book tackles this problem by explaining semiotic terms and theories in relation to visual communication. It also includes examples.

"Excellent content and user friendly approach to the subject of semiotics. More than just an introduction, the book deals with a complex subject in a highly visual and practical way. Highly relevant. Students will be encouraged to buy this book." - Leeds College of Art, UK."Very informative, well written and attractive." - Bournemouth Arts University College, UK. "A beautifully designed book inside and out (typography, layout and use of paper stock). The stickers add a level of interactivity that any student would like. This all adds up to a book that a student would want to keep for future reference. Content that is very relevant to an advanced graphic design course." - Montclair State University, USA.
