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. Weâ€™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:
â€œI 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 Iâ€™ve been distancing myself from it or exploring new ways of abstracting the characters to create different visual languages.â€
â€œI enjoy finding new ways to communicate with people. For me the hidden messages arenâ€™t so much about hiding things but creating new visual languages. After sharing this newer series with people, itâ€™s been interesting for me to watch or hear peopleâ€™s reactions. Most people start by observing the shapes and the patterns in the pieces, and then once they discover itâ€™s a system and ultimately a message,Â I think they connect with the piece on a different levelÂ because they’re unpacking and discovering things, which is very different from simply reading the piece right away.â€
