Mouton D’Or Winner 2021
"Measuring diagram quality through semiotic morphisms", Marshall, Guy Clarke & André Freitas, 239, 125-146.
The judges commented: "The Committee members made this decision based on several factors. First, Diagrams have always played a significant role in the explication of theoretical concepts in semiotics. This essay provides an excellent overview of the semiotic diagram and its use as a pedagogical and instrumental visual to advance semiotic theory. It also applies taxonomy and category theory to assess the quality of a diagram. Second, this essay provides an evaluation metric for diagrams in semiotic theory. Third, this article provides an organized and comprehensible discussion and evaluation of the form and function of the diagram in semiotic research. Finally, the authors have applied taxonomy and category theory to the interdiscipline of semiotics to evaluate diagram quality."
