Taking inspiration from iconic 20th century artist Josef Albers and his use of colors, digital artist Leonardo Betti of Leonardoworx created a series of abstract numbers made from colorful plexiglass. With varying sizes of square and rectangular pieces of custom plexiglass, Betti arranges them in such a way that colors change depending on what colors are in front of or behind. The results are a new spin on numerical typography, taking it from 2D to 3D with layers that create something you might not pick up on at first glance. When you learn they are actually numbers, the Albers Numbers make you take a second look to appreciate the thought and process behind creating them.
