Spelling with Elements

Geek Culture


Theodore Gray, creator of the Periodic Table Table, has come out with new element banners.  The idea is to spell words or phrases using only the one- or two-letter element abbreviations, then illustrate the spelling with photos from the poster of his table. You can try your own name here:


Gray says about 30-40% of English words/names work this way, and you can choose
between versions where the letters are pretty obvious and ones where they are small,
like in the poster. 

Personally I like that variation because it makes the thing into a bit of a puzzle: It seems like a random collection of unrelated photos until you figure out what connects them.

For example:
