This document presents semiotic perspectives as a tool for design practice. The process of semiosis can certainly serve as a guideline value for design solutions. However, with a clear focus on actual behaviour of the user, the first stage of the process of reception, the simple denotation can be already be vague and ambiguous according to the local common understanding and/or one´s personal world view. Following negative connotations will block any possibilities of proceeding quidance. In order to halt this process this research will point on the characteristic features by which designers can recognize the appearing problems, in order to resolve them. The most important point is to take a holistic, system-oriented view on humans and society to overcome confusion, discouragement and intolerable delays.
