1. WHAT IS A SIGN? Using a range of examples of signs, illustrate and explain the difference between straightforward signs(denotation), like road-signs and pictograms, and more complex signs that use metaphors and allusion (connotation) such as some logos and album covers.

2. WHAT IS STYLE? Different styles mean different audiences and different ways of addressing them. Consider how a particular graphic design style (either current or from the past) connects with an audience.

3. WORDS AS IMAGES. Explore some examples of graphic design, where words are used to make pictures, or visually act out the meanings they carry. These examples should come from letterpress and digital printing. Discuss and compare their effects

Theses are the 3 essay questions we can choose from but the proper question is what one to choose. I have read and analyzed them and i have illuminated number 2 as i have done an essay like it before and there for i wouldn't have much research to come up with and to make the essay interesting and challenging.
Speaking to Anne about the essay i brought up the question of "does it have to be relevant to the project we have just done" - Anne replying no but it would make it easyer for you, you have ur project to back up ur essay and the other way round for ur project

But me personally i really ant to do something different to my project to make it a fresh start, to exsplore and learn more things so im more drawn towards the question 3
I may do some research into the question and decide later!
