The Great French Post-It Note War of 2011 has either seen it's end or escalation into the Post-It equivalent of nuclear war. After months of trading fire, Ubisoft Montreal dropped a serious bomb on BNP bank in the form of a 3-story tall Post-It note Ezio, and we all know how that guy deals with things. Up until now, the note creatures have been mostly cartoonish, neon, and limited to a single story. This attack by Ubisoft must have taken some serious coordination and a supply line of appropriately colored stickies. If Assassin's Creed: Revelation comes out a little buggy, now you know why.

So, you are bored at work. What is there to do? Well, you could decorate the glass walls of your office building with Post-it pictures of your favorite animated characters. This is exactly what employees at Ubisoft Montreuil
in France did. But, their neighbors across the street at BNP bank
took their Post-it artwork as a bit of a challenge, and started firing back with some window images of their own. Thus, the Great French Post-it War of 2011 was born. Clearly, it spawned an epic rivalry worthy of the likes of Mario and Bowser. See more pictures of the two companies' Post-it characters after the jump.
Vintage Twitter is a playful packaging design by communications firm JMW, simultaneously paying "loving homage to Twitter, with a reminder that the short message is not a new invention" and celebrating Post-It's 30 years in the industry.
Best of all: There's already an open standard.
