Periodic Table

Jack Kruf

Within the Periodic Table all elements have a place. In this selected serie of elements the symbol, name, atomic number (above left) and atomic weight (under) are displayed. In the design I have chosen for a classic style by using typeface Times New Roman. The chosen colour depends on the group to which the element belongs. I have chosen to work with Pantone® for colour management and reproduction.


The element hydrogen has the symbol ‘H’ and atomic number 1. It is the lightest element in the universe, at standard temperature and pressure diatomic gas H2.

The name derives from the Greek ὑδρο, hydro meaning “water” and -γενής, genes meaning “creator”, originating from the discovery that water is produced when hydrogen is burned. The colour is Pantone® Greenery, referring to the non-metal group to which hydrogen belongs.

Hydrogen can play a relevant role in the transition from fossil to renewable energy.


The element Helium is a chemical element with the symbol ‘He’ and atomic number 2. It is the lightest element in the universe. It is inert and used for high tech solutions.

It is a noble gas, named for the Greek god of the sun ἥλιος, Helios.  The colour is Pantone® Azure Blue, the referring to the noble gasses group to which helium belongs.

Helium is a non-renewable resource. It is made on earth via nuclear decay of uranium, and it is recovered from mines. Valuable and scarce.


The element Lithium has the symbol ‘Li’ and atomic number 3. It is a soft metal and is used in several industrial applications.

Lithium is derived from the Greek λίθος, lithos, meaning ‘stone’. Lithium was thought to exist only in minerals in early time. The colour is Pantone® Solar Power, referring to the alkali metal group to which Lithium belongs.

Lithium is considered as one of the key elements for making the energy transition from fossil towards sustainable. Lithium is used in batteries, among other applications in electric vehicles.
