Brooklyn-based artist and graphic designer Scott Albrecht has a strong sense of color and typography as can be seen in the three-dimensional pieces shown above. Words play a large role in his designs with phrases incorporated as hidden messages. We’ve featured some of his work on wood but we personally would love to see more of his paper collages. The artist shares some insights on an interview with Frame Web:
“I have a background in graphic design, so a lot of my work tends to incorporate different design elements and principles, like typography, colour-blocking, simplified shapes and forms, etc. Typography has played a larger part in my work over the years, but more recently I’ve been distancing myself from it or exploring new ways of abstracting the characters to create different visual languages.”
“I enjoy finding new ways to communicate with people. For me the hidden messages aren’t so much about hiding things but creating new visual languages. After sharing this newer series with people, it’s been interesting for me to watch or hear people’s reactions. Most people start by observing the shapes and the patterns in the pieces, and then once they discover it’s a system and ultimately a message, I think they connect with the piece on a different level because they’re unpacking and discovering things, which is very different from simply reading the piece right away.”
