Another clever use of the periodic table in design: Washington State’s Wines of Substance, who won Seattle Magazine’s “Coolest Wine Label” Award in 2008.
According to Substance, “wine is as much an art as it is a science. What better way to express this basis than a Periodic Table of Wine with each varietal reflected as an element or substance?” Their interactive “periodic table” website is hardly scientific, but it does look pretty awesome:
In addition to looking all sciencetastic, Substance sponsors selected nonprofits – in January, 25% of all purchases go to Helpline Women’s Shelter. So check out their selection. (Unfortunately, if you live in a state that doesn’t allow wine shipments (boo!) you can’t order from Substance – or anyone else.)
