They Transformed the Boring Office Wall Into Something Heroic with 8,024 Post-It Notes
Most office environments aren’t very colourful and are usually boring to look at. One office worker decided to change his own office by creating colourful murals of superheroes with post-it-notes.
Ben Brucker’s solution was to cover the office’s walls with a series of superhero portraits made from a total of 8,024 post-it notes. It took him many weeks to plan and design the characters. His boss liked the idea so he decided to give him a $300 budget for the materials and even helped him put up the post-its. His reason for doing this; “One day I just got so tired of how sterile and boring our office felt, I thought I should do something about it.”
A carefully chosen palette of colors make up each larger-than-life composition, with an upside down spiderman, superman and batman towering over workstations and corridors. The grids span the entire office facility with an interesting sequence in a mosaic style that reveals the full image when glanced at from a distance.
Along with his fellow co-workers, Brucker created murals that were colourful, playful, and inspiring. “What’s more inspiring than superheroes? The office team agreed and got to work, starting with a gorgeous post-it note mural of Wonder Woman. One obviously wasn’t enough, so Superman, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, IronMan, Spiderman, and Batman soon followed. Co-workers were so keen about the project that they came in on weekends to get the murals completed.
