World’s first fully functional QR code Portraits


QR code designs are gaining popularity these days. I have also made some portraits based on QR codes claiming them to be the first in the world because other designed QR codes have small images just pasted in them but in my designs I have used the native square boxes to create an image which is different from all designs present on the internet these days.

As technology is growing day by day we are getting something new each day and as the example of new exploding technology that is QR codes which are widely used these days. A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a specific matrix bar code (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by dedicated QR readers, smart phones, and to a less common extent, computers with webcams. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data.

Getting inspired from the QR codes I have started my “QR code project” in which I am designing QR Code pattern images of influential personalities from around the world. Now I want to share a little

About the background story of this project – Few days back while using one of the social networking website I came across a stream which was about “QR Codes being used in headstones of graveyard”, I found that post interesting: How the people are adopting technology for some really different applications. That time simultaneously I was studying about history of art and design so an idea struck into my mind to blend this new technology to create some new designs and this is how QR Code project started. The first piece with which I started this project was ‘Mona Lisa’.

As I completed some designs my friends asked me about the functionality of these codes but the answer was No because that time I just tried to make them simple QR code inspired designs. These questions forced me work on the functionality of these designs so studied lot of stuff about their working from there I came to know about various details which helped in coding these fully funtional codes.

Note: These QR codes tested using various QR code readers and proved to be fully functional but they  are much more sensitive than the normal ones so you need take proper care while decoding them using your readers( proper focus, lighting etc.)

To check the functionality online of these codes click on the images and copy url and visit most reliable Online decoder.
