So I desperately need a barcode for my book if I’m not going to go for a limited edition version, It has to look like this… but less blurry.


I decided to create it in adobe illustrator where it wouldn’t be able to blur due to sizing! I started off placing a rectangle in with a sharp stroke to it without a fill like so…

I then had to place another rectangle inside for the orange bar at the top.

I then had to place a few dividers in. After doing so I had to input the information in an easily readable font, I went for Mongolian Baiti. I also had to place the logo in up on the top right hand corner. Not forgetting the barcode I chose to place roughly 15 lines and had to experiment with the stroke rate to make it look more like a barcode.

Ending up looking like this I was impressed on how quick it took to create and I am pleased with the final result.
