QR stands for ‘quick response’ and it’s a type of barcode with an encoded URL. If you have a phone with a camera and internet service you simply take a picture of the QR code and it then connects to the URL in question. It’s used mainly by advertisers, both for outdoor posters and and for print ads. You will be seeing more of these on marketing materials. Working with many clients to add them to print, web and social media.
I will be posting more examples soon.
Links to some good articles about them.
