Kustom QR

QR code in my logo!!! (click on the pictures for better resolution)
Humongo QR code that leads you to my blog! How nifty is that?
I was chatting with an esteemed colleague of mine today and the topic of conversation somehow turned to QR codes. Can't for the life of me remember how. But anyway, if you have a QR scanning app on your smartphone, you can scan these codes and get directed to websites — like mine for example. Being a lover of blatant self-promotion, I just had to give this a try.

So, my esteemed colleague showed me how to generate my own QR code... You can make one by going to Google URL Shortener. First, paste in the URL of your site. Then in the top right, the magically generated QR code appears for your newly-shortened URL. I saved the image onto my desktop, vectorised it in Illustrator, customised it a little and put it into my logo — since I had nothing better to do this evening aside from TV. Maybe when I have more time I'll tweak it a little more.

If you'd like to see some other neat examples of QR code art, check out this site.

On a side note, I've been photoshopping all the images for the upcoming UWA Save the Children book sale sheet music MEGAPOST!!!! It's taking a while, but it will be AMAZING!!! I promise!
