40 Creative and Beautiful QR Code Artworks

The QR Code (Quick Response Code) is as new kind of the barcode that carries information that can be scanned by a QR code reader. It also comes with a deadly boring design. But thanks to reader integration designers are now able to transform its meaningless look into visually appealing designs like the one you see here!

Today, just about anyone can bring their boring QR code design up a notch. Here are just 40 thematic QR codes with creative, promising and beautiful designs! While some of them may look a world away from the usual black and white QR code, you will be surprised with the fact that they actually can be scanned for info.

Most of the QR codes can actually work, but not every photography app or QR scanner application can detect them. However, you can still search and download multiple QR scanner apps from the app store to try them out. So what are we waiting for? On to the list!

Using your portrait is actually a good idea, as the human’s face, especially the eye, could attract a great deal of attention.
