Sažetak
This article examines visual representation of recycling and waste management signs printed on packaging and it’s relation to the consumer. Since the life cycle of packaging is short, proper labeling of packaging is important because it serves as a visual guide to the consumer during the process of sorting waste. Since introduction of the Mobius loop sign by the Container Corporation of America in 1970, there has been a growing trend of increased environmental awareness. During the years, many new signs with environmental claims have been introduced to consumers, and their numbers are increasing every year. It is therefore important that the design of these signs is easily understandable to consumers and that their meaning is clear and unambiguous. This article is aimed to determine how the Croatian consumers interpret recycling and waste management signs and how their design and connotative meaning affect consumer decisions. It also examines impact of multiple sign interactions, and how they affect consumer interpretation.
