Using a minimum of words, produce a creative piece of visual communication that illustrates your understanding of semiotics in relation to a contemporary subculture.
I have designed a record cover and booklet which illustrates my understanding of semiotics in relation
to a vintage subculture.
The aesthetic I have used is terps transfer on to brown paper to give an old vintage look. The front cover is
designed to look like a vintage broche, I have included many symbols within this one broche. The back cover of the record is the reverse of the broache.
For this assignment I have produced a creative piece of visual communication that illustrates my understanding of semiotics in relation to a vintage subculture.
I have designed a record cover and insert booklet.
The insert booklet consists of some dress up paper dolls as these are considered to be vintage and many people today collect them. For historians, paper dolls and their costumes provide a broad look at culture around the world. Examples of the first paper dolls have been found in the fashion centrers of Vienna, Berlin, London and Paris from as early as the mid 1700's. These are hand painted figures and costumes created for the entertainment of wealthy adults. They may have been produced by a dressmaker to show current fashions or done as satirical.
Therefore the paper dolls and accessories I have created are blank and each page has a perforation making it easier for the user to tear out. The last page in the booklet is a paint palette consisting of water colours and a paintbrush, all the user has to do is add water and they can start painting the paper doll and accessories. Imagery used on these pages is consistent with my original design on the front cover and all images relate well with my chosen subculture vintage.
