Denotations and Connotations


Apple - Stands for the company who make computers, tablets, iPods etc.  It's a well known logo because they make the best phones and tablets, also they were one of the first to make touch screen products. Most young and elderly people probably wouldn't recognise this because they don't use apple products. 

Citroen - This logo stands for the french car company Citroen who are well known mostly to every age and gender except for every young people as they don't tend to take an interest in cars or be very observant when looking at them.  To people who don't recognise the logo, it could also be read as parallel lines.

Male symbol - this symbol maybe isn't as well known as the other two above because it isn't seen in everyday life whereas the others we see on TV a lot.
