Massive consumption of cow for hamburger. See it like a codebar not like an animal.

I prefer pork but I love a good steak too.

Auspex

BradLand2

guess what are cliché.

even though i entered this contest too, i have to says this rocks! i could see the barcode being slightly more subtle and being brown (same as the cow) instead. in any case...very damien hirst and kudos for the design/concept.

I dont think they slice cows up into barcode slices but its still a good idea!!!!

Awesome concept, great work!

spiralsword

Love the concept & the way the slices become barcode lines, but the cow itself looks a little... mutated XD

Eheh i'm going to work for a better cow. :)

haha omggg

samanthaflute

ooh, that's pretty clever. I've seen some similar tees, but so far this is my favorite.

crpfctry

rad, the bar code haters seem like really SERIOUS people....

I've been tired of barcode subs, but this is interesting. Well done.

Yeah thanks everybody. The barcode is just here for remember the consumption. I think that's justified.

Very well done. Just because barcodes are used a lot doesn't mean this isn't a good design. This is very well done and very well thought out.

It's an okay starting point. the art needs to be cleaned up, and you should change the typeface to something like OCR-B

shortee113

thats awesome!! And it would totaly work with a pig or a chicken too... and barcodes rock!

thecurlmaster

no offense, but I don't really like the design, but I did have to do a double take when I saw THE NUMBERS! Just for that, I give it a 4.

iLoveBeans

Typ0w

butter08

like the idea but i think the cow looks a bit stupid. but i guess one looks stupid if getting sliced up

TraveDiz

Idea is awesome....cow kinda looks half pig...4$

morganian

I prefer this to the re-sub version.

bravoechonovember

normally i hate barcodes but i think it works in this design

nilu

Great idea!!
That thin meat slices... they call them carpaccio, don't they?

grracexx

I love it. It should be in Navy.
haha, cows. my favorite animals. my friends will be shocked if i buy this. (if printed) a 5!

mauvaischampignon

I just commented on your new version of this, and I have to say that I like this one better, but what I said about the powerful message is still true, if not moreso.

lemonink

Bravo!. I do agree with 317537 that the barcode may look better in brown as is the cow. Nice concept. I'd take it on a nice peach shirt myself. And as one who grew up with cows, that's a nice cow. :D
