Worker Uses 8,024 Post-It Notes To Turn Boring Office Walls Into Superhero Murals

Ben Brucker was tired of the plain, bland walls at the office of the creative agency he works for, so he decided to do something about it. His solution was to cover the office’s walls with a series of pixelated superhero portraits made from a total of 8,024 post-it notes.

Brucker writes on Reddit that it took him several weeks to plan and design the characters. He had the full support of his boss, who gave him a $300 budget for the materials and even helped him put the post-its up when it was time!

He explains that post-its were used because the agency would be moving to another office in a few months anyway, so they needed a design that was 100% non-permanent.

“There are a lot of leftovers, and some colors from the packs were not used at all. I ended up purchasing about 9,000 post-its”
