Semiological View to Branding

 

Sociologists who had concentrated on Cultural Studies and basically Semiology and Semiotics during 1950's, had researches and essays on cultural signs: how something like a product, action, place, etc. gets its an image in the sub-consciousness of the society, and how using it conveys a connotation beyond the its function.

The example of a "Cap" is a textbook illustration of the idea discussed above. A cap's primary function is to avoid the sun's light to distract the eyes; however, when it is used indoor in a party at night, it is indeed no longer functional. In fact, in this case, it is a signifier which signifies an unwritten arbitrariness in the society's sub-conscience, a "culture" which conveys to which society the user of the cap belongs, which may differ from one society to another based on the different events they have been exposed to. A society which has mostly been exposed to tennis games may have a different feeling toward the image of the cap (and therefore the image of the cap-user) in comparison with the another society which has been exposed to DJs wearing caps in a reverse way!

Further semiological researches discuss that users show a greater tendency to use the sign, the culture installed on a products, rather than its basic function.

This is where our view to branding emerges:
