Tired of soul-sucking gray office walls? Well one office worker decided to do something about it. 

Ben Brucker combined superhero pixel art and Post-it notes to create a series of incredible murals around his office. It makes perfect sense, considering all the little squares involved in both. He enlisted the help of his coworkers, and documented the office transformation in a photo journal.

The team used small mockups of the images and painters tape as guides. You can use the templates to redo the walls of your own office (if you can get your boss on board.) Or just make them as an April Fools’ prank—and conveniently forget to take them down for a few months.

In this time-lapse Vimeo video from Brucker, you can see his office team constructing Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Batman with Post-it notes.

We bet the office morale boost from these badass murals will more than pay back the lost productivity from covering the walls with Post-its.
