The Mediterranean Propaganda in Travel Posters as Presented by Two Colonisers
This paper aim is to examine the propaganda presented in the posters of two colonial travel companies to find
what type of stereotypes were imposed on the inhabitant of the Mediterranean, and how these visual tactics drew a line
between “us and them.”We followed a qualitative semiotic analysis to show conflicting opinions and resolved issues
regarding meanings of concepts, procedures and interaction. The findings have the aim of encouraging designers to be more
responsible with the use of design elements especially the designers who follow trends and what is common.
