D-Barcode: Custom Coded

  • SumoMe

D-Barcode, a Japanese design firm, has been custom-making barcodes since 2005. The results (as seen below) reveal that D-Barcode is clearly not a fan of conformity.


But these things of creativity and beauty don’t come cheap. They got for $1,500 for a design, and $200 a year for licensing fees. A code for personal use can cost you up to $4,000. Being unique comes with a hefty price tag.

Would a product with an unconventional barcode make you want to buy it more or would it make you pick up the product, smile at the barcode and put it back down?
