Design a border that will be placed around a QR Code that graphically communicates to the viewer that they should scan the code.
- Update 11-Jun-13 GMT
- For the border. The most important element of the border is to graphically communicate to the viewer that they should scan the code. Don't focus on the reward aspect, focus on communicating to the viewer (at an arm's length) that the viewer should scan the code.
Here are the most common comments from the latest submissions:
- Focus on the border around the QR code. This border essentially IS the logo.
The border also needs to graphically communicate to the viewer that they should scan the code. This element is more important that the “lostFound.com” text.
- The border will be likely viewed at arm’s length; the graphics/text should be legible at this distance.
- Use a more traditional font and experiment with gray-scale colors.
- Continue to experiment with the graphical communication on the border (that signals to “scan”). Most space on the border should be devoted to this.
- Update 12-Jun-13 GMT
Do not focus so much on the "LostFound.com" text in the border.

- Update 18-Jun-13 GMT
- Extending the Deadline so that we have more time to provide feedback!
- Update 1-Jul-13 GMT
- Need more time to review
- Update 9-Jul-13 GMT
- This will be the LAST extension.
Update: We decided to go with the magnifying glass-type border.
- the circle part of the magnifying glass should fill up as much space as possible within a square; potentially tilt the handle at an angle to conserve space
- the magnifying glass portion does not need to be a perfect circle; try a shape in between a square and circle so that the square code fits better inside
- Color: do the initial drafts all in black, except for any glowing effect around the edges
- If glowing affect is used, do this in red- experiment with making a "glowing effect" around the magnifying glass using red text (like arrange the words "scan me" in a pattern that makes a glowing affect)
- Update 9-Jul-13 GMT
- We will award a second and third place awards of $75 each to two additional designers at the end of the project!
