FRONT PAGE / About Semionaut

What is Semionaut?

Semionaut is an online magazine & knowledge resource offering insight into culture, media, creative industries, and brand strategy. Its publishers, editors, and contributors are professionally involved in the application of semiotic and cultural analysis to brand communication and design issues. 

The Semionaut community operates globally and our intention is to facilitate productive links across as many frontiers as possible. There are other sites where academics can think aloud and talk to one another. Here we are talking across languages, professional discourses, and cultural divides.
