QR codes on packets of coffin nails have appeared before as concept advertising. I thought it would be interesting to see if QR codes could be used for good.
Here’s my attempt (I’m not a graphics designer!)
The first QR code goes to Direct.gov.uk’s mobile friendly Smoking Calculator.
The second goes to a site which lets your enter your postcode to find help near you. The resultant page has maps and click-to-call links.
The NHS has several great mobile pages for smokers who wish to quit – but these were the only ones I could find with a simple URL.
So, whaddaya-think? Will QR codes save people from the evil grasp of Nick O’Teen?
Of course, some people have other ideas…
Screw health warnings on fag packets. They should just print them with embarrassing messages. "I have VD" "I touch kids" "I voted Tory"
