This paper uses the theory of product semantics to study the semantics of interface design from the perspective of design semiotics. It sorts out the concept and design idea of product semantics, analyzes the meaning and elements of product semantics, and explores the interface design principles. Relying on the stadium monitoring system interface design project, from the three principles of clear semantics, unambiguous semantics and clear semantics, the application of product semantics in the interface design of the stadium monitoring system is discussed, and the product semantics theory is analyzed and verified. The interface design conforms to the user’s usage habits, reduces the learning process, thereby improving the operation efficiency, reducing the error rate, and being more humanized.
