“My work is inspired by an ongoing observation of the situations happening around me, from the larger, shared experiences of our current events down to the more personal and intimate moments. I look at these experiences not in isolation from each other but as connected and often informing a larger conversation of how we are all connected. Through my work I reflect and distill those insights in an attempt to preserve those times or feelings during them. Because of this, I often see the final works as artifacts or reminders of what is taken away, and have come to use this perspective as a guide in my work — to create something worth being reminded of.

A large portion of my work focuses on typography through an abstracted perspective. In various ways letterforms are disguised or intentionally camouflaged to shift the viewer’s focus to the individual shapes within the characters, their relationships to one another and the overall mood of the work before uncovering the legibility of the message. It is intentional to not have the viewer read, but explore the ideas through more visual languages.” Scott Albrecht

My top tips

Everyday we see many pieces of design from logos to leaflets. Some are good others not so good. When you type a letter or put a PowerPoint together you are designing. You choose the font, size & you decide to use an image or not. So here are my top tips for designing.

SEA’s – Made in Italy book

Sea-aiap-fedrigoni-madeinitaly-itsnicethat-main

Europe has a fine graphic design tradition but certain countries – Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the UK – tend to predominate when it comes to coverage. And so we’re always keen to hear about initiatives that celebrate lesser known design scenes, such as SEA and Fedrigoni’s upcoming exploration of Italy’s graphics heritage. Made In Italy showcases post-war Italian graphic design by way of a show in east London and a series of monographs focussing on some of the most interesting practitioners – Ilio Negri, Heinz Waibl, Franco Grignani and Giancarlo Iliprandi. With amazing access to the Aiap archives in Milan, SEA has also put together a book for the show with the explicit aim of putting this “untapped” subject firmly in the spotlight.
