Posters for Paul Thomas Anderson films created by students in my winter quarter Semiotics class at the Portfolio Center.
What is semiotics? It refers to the study of signs: meaning all the visual and sense information that surrounds us. Semiotics is what helps us make sense of all we see in terms of meaning and form and culture.
The assignment to my Semiotics class:
Drawing from Paul Thomas Anderson’s films, create a poster that stands as a new sign for an existing film.
Here are some of my favorite examples from my second and third quarter designers at Portfolio Center. Enjoy!
