30 Simple Yet Creative Bar Code Designs




Did you know that bar codes could be designed? Nether did I, until a recent discovery. Usually barcodes are black and boring, they don’t contain any type of design or creativity. A vanity barcode is a product UPC (or Similar) barcode that’s been turned into a decorative design, yet still scans like a regular barcode. They’re a powerful marketing tool (Example: Cow UPC below could be used on a steak packaging) that can transform a boring, space-hogging barcode into a terrific brand asset. Today we have gathered some simple yet creative UPC barcode designs for your inspiration. For more information and examples check out  http://www.vanitybarcodes.com.

    This is one of those ideas thats just so obvious I can’t believe I haven’t seen it before. Just excellent.

    If I was manufacturing any product that had to have a barcode on it, why would I use this idea?

    These are fantastic! I had no idea barcodes could be designed either. I hope this catches on and companies begin to introduce this on real products. Thanks for sharing.

    I saw this in a book a few years ago–something like the Graphic Designers Workbook–maybe that’s not the right title, but, anyway, this isn’t a new idea.

    I like the ones best where using the barcode makes sense as part of a design that would have lines in it (ex. paintbrush bristles) rather than just pasted into a graphic (ex. pie slice with barcode.Although if the designer had put it on top in a scoop of ice cream, it could have been pie slice a la barcode. Whatever.)
