Spider-Man and Other Super Heroes Wash Windows at Children’s Hospital
Ok, we know this is not a story directly related to design but it is still very creative and a great use of the superhero ethos. Spider-Man is a cultural icon, known worldwide and a multi-billion dollar movie and merchandising franchise. But its humble beginnings started on the colorful pages of a comic book which is truly an artistic realm for visual storytelling. Transforming these characters into real world situations to bring joy and happiness to these sick and hospitalized children is an admirable feat.
