Barcodes are fun(?)

barcode_coke_v2.jpgBarcodes are one of those ungainly, functional things that clutter up packaging and take away from the fun, cool part of the package, right? Uhhhh, not so fast – maybe it’s just because we’ve all just accepted that sort of limited thinking.

Turns out there’s a wealth of interesting things that can be done with the standard barcode to make it interesting, clever, and compelling – all while maintaining its requisite functionality. Just take a look at a few examples from the recent blog post that excellent package design blog Box Vox displayed. (They show plenty more great pics that I didn’t swipe).

Thanks to JoAnn Hines, The Packaging Diva for this one. Check out her site.
