How do you spice up a boring plain old office space wall? With a mural featuring an image of The Child (Baby Yoda) from The Mandalorian Disney+ series, that’s how. Check out how a group of employees over at Viking crafted this most impressive wall mural of The Child from over 1,000 Post-It Notes!
Inspired by the upcoming release of The Mandalorian and the latest Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film, employees at office-suppliers Viking decided to get creative at work and pay tribute to one of the franchise’s most talked about characters, Baby Yoda.
After a survey they previously carried out found that 50% of workers said art had a noticeable effect on reducing their stress levels, and over half (53%) said having art displayed in the office made them feel happier at work, Viking allowed workers to utilize their spare wall space to produce their own fan art.
Planned, designed, developed and built by a group of the company’s most dedicated Star Wars fans, the 99×93 inch tribute took the form of a Baby Yoda wall mural made up purely of Post-it Notes.
Once the initial image was in place, the team made slight changes to the design in order to create an animated GIF which brings Baby Yoda to life. The finished GIF shows Baby Yoda taking a sip from his cup – an image that has become famous across the internet.
The office wall mural took a team of 12 a total of 7.5 hours to complete, with office workers dipping in and out of the build when they had spare time throughout the day. The initial build used 1,023 post-it notes and took 4.5 hours to complete, with an additional 3 hours and a further 294 post-it notes then being used to animate the design. Overall, the combined man-hours on the project equate to 20 hours.
If you laid all the 1,317 post-it notes used for the build side by side, they would stack up to 329 feet – taller than the Statue of Liberty.
