The Kings of QR Codes

Patrick Donnelly ( and Nick Ford (

On a gorgeous Spring day in Manhattan I had the privilege of trading ideas with the KING of the "Designer QR Code", Patrick Donnelly. It was hard for me to contain my excitement about the future while I was sitting with him. When you get together with someone who shares your dreams and insights it's always difficult to stay grounded. Lol, especially ME.

"SIR Patrick" has been dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of QR code design. His designs and experiments will unlock doors to what's possible in the future as well as give him the title of "pioneer" once QR codes become mainstream. My bet is that you will see Partick's work on a billboard in Times Square someday soon.


  1. Nick,

    Thanks for a great post. No doubt you will be familiar with a few of the codes collected here at my blog. Each allows for an easy scan to test the range of artful and brand possibilities.


  2. Thanks David. I think QR Code design will become it's own INDUSTRY.

  3. just started designing my own qr codes, really cool stuff. Thx for the post.

  4. I can totally see QR-Codes as an Art Form. Organic! Thanks for sharing!
