For today’s launch of Hitman HD: Trilogy, we hired barcode artist Scott Blake to create a digital mosaic portrait of Agent 47. The mural is comprised of 9,985 UPC barcodes from the Trilogy game box.
Using a smartphone, fans can scan any of the barcodes to find out where to buy the game. There are an additional 11 QR Codes hidden within the mosaic that unlock exclusive content such as the game trailer and illustrations from the Hitman art book.
Each illustration is a classic scene from the Hitman series “reimagined” by various artists including Jeff Langevin, Hollis Brown Thornton, Brian Ewing, Garth Glazier, and Jeff Matsuda.
