All hail the vanity barcode!


So long as barcodes follow strict rules that dictate their height, spacing and colour, designers can do pretty much anything they want with them. Vanity barcodes have already begun appearing on products in the US and the Far East - expect the barcodes on our shelves to get a makeover soon.

    The first vanity barcode I noticed was on my Kindle. I have wondered since then why more products don't do it. It is fairly simple really!

    Why wasn't this done years ago?

    Would be interesting to see it implemented on a pack of Durex

What do you think?
