Barcodes – form follows function

On the consideration of designing a frontpage for a magazine you need to accomodate a barcode, i’m thinking the reason why it cannot be put on the back page is because A: it’s less obvious to find for scanning ( which seems pathetic ) or, B: the back page has been sold for advertising purposes and therefore a barcode may interupt with the advert, whatever the reason barcodes always appear on the frontpage and look a bit unsightly

so i’m going to try and doctor a barcode to keep it in theme with my magazine so as it is not bringing down the aesthetic impact of my frontpage..i had a look and found some reasonable examples of what has been done before, feel free to add to my findings
