Inventive Japanese barcodes blend art and maths
A Japanese company called D-Barcode has chosen to illustrate the fact that a little bit of creativity can do absolute wonders to the mundane aspects of everyday life – by unleashing their imagination on something as taken-for-granted as a barcode. By blending art into these unexciting lines of black, D-Barcode has elevated the status of a barcode from that of being simply functional to being a precious collectible.
Apparently, these arty barcodes are available on virtually all of Japan’s grocery items and have radically changed the shopping-for-grocery experience. Each one is a visual treat – a scorpion stuck in the zipper, couple on a couch, dangling strawberries, man lifting a heavy load and so many others. Fortunate are those that get to enjoy this fabulous art for free.
