If you happen to be in Bellevue anytime this week, you will want to swing by the Expedia building. They’ve built a 10-story Marshawn Lynch display entirely out of construction paper.
To make the monster Marshawn, and outdo themselves from last year’s Richard Sherman, the makers used “3,000 9×12 sheets of colored construction paper, each one an individual pixel in the finished picture,” according to this report from MyNorthwest.com. It also includes the message “Hawks Re-Pete” on the top floors overlooking I-405.
It took about 30 people and six hours to assemble the entire thing.
“Just like the Seahawks, we knew we had to be even better than last year,” Jonathan Graham, an Expedia UX Designer and one of the project coordinators, told MyNorthwest.com. “We see all the 12s and we’re pretty creative here so we figured we could one up it.”
Well played, Expedia, well played.
