- The Evolution of SymbolsAn Archive
- The evolution of symbols, among all forms of evolution, can only be described as a profound phenomenon. Much like the phenomena of man, life, and the universe - controversy can be found in high saturation during conversations involving the origin and evolution of symbols. The field and study of semiotics plays a large role in understanding historical cultures and uncovering more information about where and when consciousness was formed here on earth. Early in my study of semiotics, I was able to discern that there is no coincidence among the symbols of early man and their cosmic studies. Each symbol provided a form of communication with purpose for our ancestors. I have often wondered about the birth places of these symbols, their relationships with the universe and mankind. This fascination gave me the inspiration needed to design a modern book on the evolution of symbols.
- This book discusses the origins of hundreds of symbols from around the world. With a standard graphic design approach, I utilized a traditional medium for the display of modern information. This brought substantial metaphoric value to the solution. With only two weeks to research, design, and produce one copy of this hand-bound for a school project - I completed this prototype just in time.Please email me at AeffectDesign@gmail.com with questions and requests.Enjoy the Evolution of Symbols.Sincerely,
