Chemistry aside, there’s something genuinely satisfying about the design and layout of the Periodic Table of Elements. I couldn’t tell you what most of the symbols represent, but I’m immediately drawn to it visually. I love its modular shape, its seemingly random configuration, its asymmetry, and all the colour-coded boxes suspended in space.
When John had the idea to create a plant kingdom periodic table to help us through our plant research to-do, I was 100% on board. We worked on compiling and researching together, and then John prepared the finished design. Now, whenever we go to toast some bread or microwave leftovers, we’ll be reminded just how mind-blowingly brilliant the world is.
