Openness…

Posted in Communication,Cultural Awareness,Functionality,Learning and Development by emz2687 on November 28, 2007

In mondays lecture Adrian spoke to us about semiotics (again!!!) and how our design needs to be more ‘open’. I think the gist of the lecture was to sway us up-and-coming designers from being so literal in our work, and letting the readers/audience guess and interoperate meanings, rather than them being handed out on a plate. I sort of agree with this as it makes sense for the audience to be more hands on and consequentially, more interested and involved in whatever is being discussed. Therefore as designers we should give way to the literal and allow the reader to work for the answer.
