10+ Most Creative Barcode Designs Ever
The humble barcode has come a long way since it was first invented by Norman Joseph Woodland, an American inventor who received a patent for the ubiquitous black and white stripes found on pretty much everything way back in 1952.
Check out this awesome list of creative barcodes to see what we mean. From bird cages and fish bones to tree roots and accordions, these clever designs prove that good package design can turn an ordinary barcode into something extraordinary.
Oh, and by the way, did you know that the first product with a barcode was scanned in a supermarket in Troy, Ohio, on June 26th 1974? It was a 10-pack of Wrigley’s Juicey Fruit chewing gum, and you can find it on display at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History.
