The Periodic Table of Star Wars, Episodes IV, V and VI

While they don’t claim to have every character in the original trilogy, they do have the major ones.

Via etckt:

The first thing we had to think about when designing this new table of elements was the data that was to be contained on the tile. Naturally, there is the Element ID and name but what else could we include. Working through some thumbnails, we settled on the cast order, episode number and the actor’s initials.

When working through the first drafts, it was starting to look good, but wasn’t entirely what the original concept we had hoped for delivering. After much research, we were able to find one of the alphabets used in the films, Arabesh, and decided to use that for some of the ancillary data on the tile.

The coloring of the elements comes from variations on Luke and Darth Vader’s light sabers.

FJP: Be still, nerd hearts. Be still.
