Scott Engel

Framing as Art

For 20 years, the motto “Framing as Art” has put Artistic Designs Gallery & Framing at the forefront of custom framing in the Atlanta area. Owned and operated by Master-Framer Scott Engel, we are conveniently located in the heart of Atlanta’s Virginia-Highland neighborhood.

Scott frames every piece at Artistic Designs. We are not a typical frame shop where several employees are handling your art and building your frame. Scott puts care, skill, and master craftsmanship into every piece.

“From posters, Lithos, and oils…every piece has returned to me twice the work of art it was before framing.”

– Jay Schleusener, Guitar Tech, Kings of Leon


The Finest Moulding Collection in the Southeast

Dynamic, custom picture framing is our specialty. We offer a wide range of options, from budget moulding to 22k gold and can accommodate a wide variety of framing styles and price ranges. Creative framing options, whether bold or understated, will accentuate your art and create a world class piece. Our collection of over 3000 samples from around the world has been called one of the finest in the Southeast. Upon appointment, we invite you to visit our workshop and frame sample gallery. Scott will consult with you one-on-one to create the optimum frame for you unique work of art.

Notable Projects

Artistic Designs is the trusted framer of art collectors, museums, rock stars, and interior designers. Scott has framed works by Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Andy Warhol and many other notable artists. He has done framing for Museums and Institutions such as the Oglethorpe Museum of Fine Art, Carlos Museum at Emory, Rubin Museum of Art, NYC and the Carter Center.

Scott’s frames hang in many of Atlanta’s finest homes, as Artistic Designs partners with Atlanta’s top interior designers. Scott has also done projects for the rock band Kings of Leon as well as Herb Greene, photographer for the Grateful Dead and Chuck Level, keyboardist for the Rolling Stones.
