The humble sales receipt redesigned

Why are till slips so boring? Berg London rethinks the potential of this common, yet overlooked item.

Have you ever thought about the fact that a cash register is a connected device forming part of a world-wide data network? In this regard it is much like your computer or smartphone. Why then, is the output of this device, the common till slip, so… boring?

We think the humble receipt could be something like a paper “app” and be valuable in small and playful ways. – Berg

The result of their exploration is a personalised info-rich little document straight from that uncomfortable place where low tech and high tech collide.
