Trust the Future

A typographic exploration based on QC codes. A group called the Black Book activists use these 2D bar codes to combat censorship in England. In the poster, the phrase 'trust the future' can be interpreted as either reassuring or foreboding—a suggestion or a dictate. And what hidden messages do the QC codes provide (as well as obscure)?

I modified and then combined the conspicuously techno typeface Go with QC codes from a free generator like this one.


  1. the watermark image in the background makes it much less open to interpretation. I get it's source, but i think it's better without. nice type. Cameron
