Imagining QR Codes Differently

Imagining QR Codes Differently

The future of QR codes is becoming more colourful and vibrant, breaking free from their traditional black-and-white look. By incorporating generated images, the possibilities are endless.

Review this article and learn how to use two free QR art generators: Hugging Face and Quick QR Art. Additionally, we wanted to share our exploration of creating QR art using Midjourney. Scroll down to view results. 

Let's start with Hugging Face QR Art

Generated QR Art using Hugging Face

  1. Visit the Hugging Face website.
  2. Add your website URL or upload your QR image.

Now, let's move on to Quick QR Art

Generated in Quick QR Art using different presets and commands. Prompt: colourful glass tubes and pipes floating in an arrangement, in the style of digital constructivism, in purple blue and black colours 3d in black space.

  1. Start by adding the Quick QR Art Server to your Discord.
  2. Navigate to any #pixel-mL-bot channel within Discord.

Testing ways to create QR art with Midjourney

We explored creating generated QR art with Midjourney, fueled by curiosity and seeking innovative ways to craft intriguing QR codes.

Our first experiment with the /blend feature successfully inserted the QR code into the generated image. The result was intriguing, although it couldn't be scanned.

After a few days, we retried the steps but couldn't reproduce the initial results. Interestingly, the first image copied the QR code pattern instead of including an actual QR code.

To replicate the result of our first experiment, we included the phrase "QR code" in our prompt. The outcome was intriguing, but it wasn't efficient since we needed to manually add the correct QR code to the generated image. We look forward to Midjourney implementing this feature soon.

 We included the phrase "QR Code" in our prompt, hoping Midjourney would create space for it within the image.

In conclusion, we suggest using QR Art generators like Hugging Face and QR Quick Art to enhance your QR codes instead of relying solely on Midjourney. These platforms are constantly improving, making it beneficial to explore them occasionally.
