Geek QR Cards

Posted: 10th March 2012

Those of you who follow me on Twitter, or who receive my business newsletter may have noticed I've slipped somewhat into the geeky world of QR codes recently.

I've been enjoying indulging my creative side and designing customised codes for my customers, which since I started on these codes now includes more people in the business and marketing sectors as well as health and wellbeing.

QR codes can contain a number of instructions; some open up websites, others dial phone numbers, some can be used to find a map location and some can just include a text string.

With this in mind, I have created a series of greetings cards for geeks. I think it's great to add an extra layer to the experience of receiving a card. The receiver of these has to scan the code on the front of the card to find out what the message is.

Good Luck card

I could spend the next few months sending these designs to a range of stores and design agencies. I could take the plunge and have them published myself, but then spend the next few months trawling the independent greeting card sellers. I'm a Behavioural Economist not a card saleswoman, and I did just create these for fun, so I thought I'd put them out here for you to enjoy and use and download and give to the geeks in your life. Enjoy!

Top Tip: Boots and Timpsons both do a great crystal clear version of these instantly for about 40p from their instant photo processing kiosks.
