Some of my favorite prints they've created feature slightly science-nerdy themes. They did a great job graphically translating the layers of our world with big blocks of color, clever details and nice type.

So much so that he has amassed a collection of thousands of samples. After reading Uncle Tungsten by Oliver Sacks, he thought that the London Science Museum's periodic table displayed samples of the elements on a table. When he discovered that he had misread the passage and the Museum's table was actually a normal, wall-mounted version, he embraced the misunderstanding and decided to created the table he has imagined. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="336" title="Design, TheoGray, element" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/05/theogray_01.jpg?1330993232" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/periodic-table-table-theodore-gray" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/periodic-table-table-theodore-gray#comments design furniture graphic science video Tue, 06 Mar 2012 00:13:31 +0000 wardandrews 4138 at http://design.org T-Shirt Designs from Nonfiction Tees http://design.org/blog/t-shirt-designs-nonfiction-tees <p><a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/nonfictiontees?ref=pr_shop_more" target="Nonfiction Tees">Nonfiction Tees</a> offers up slightly nostalgic tees that harken back to childhood, Natural Wonders, and text books.
