Madison Avenue’s Upper East Side coutures contain some of the most intricate designs we have ever seen. These clothing patterns explore the breadth and depth of our capacity to create shape and form, color and texture. Among these dresses and skirts and scarfs are semiotic inspirations for the use of pattern to carry and convey meaning.

After years of research, we still believe that unique fixed models are the best way to organize the variables of systems.

We still believe that filling the cells of these models with rich semiotic patterns is the way to convey states and exchanges.

We still believe that a multitude of perspectives can only be portrayed by a multitude of integrated models viewed together.

We still believe that we only need a few specific defined colors, shapes and forms to deliver meaning.

And we still believe that a browser based real time visualization engine is the solution to the reinvention of knowledge.

Above all, representations are driven by their objectives and the meaning to be conveyed.

Here are some examples of how meaning can be portrayed through pattern embedded in form.

DRINKING ENERGY DRINKS

CONCUSSION MODEL
These patterns depict the immediate result of a person getting a concussion.  The patterns show the different effects by changing not only the color but texture of the pattern. A harsher pattern conveys a more negative depiction.
