The Smallest Piece of Graphic Design

Barcodes are those boring little graphics combined with lines and numbers. I assume no one would pay attention to them except for cashiers. Perhaps a well designed package can bring an enjoyable shopping experience to customers. So why not also design barcodes? A Japanese design firm called D-Barcode is now putting creative ideas onto products by transforming original barcodes into interesting iconographies. These examples are fun to look at and they might make you smile.
