Emily Forgot

Bio

Emily Forgot is the appropriately curious moniker of London based Graphic Artist Emily Alston. Having been working in the creative industry since graduating from Liverpool school of Art & Design in 2004 she has amassed a diverse range of international clients, from cultural institutions, advertising, retail, publishing & editorial.

Embracing the odd, the everyday & the sometimes surreal Emily Forgot’s playful visual language and image making continues to innovate, evolve and surprise. With each new brief comes new ideas and fresh inspiration resulting in each client having a tailor made solution. Turning her hand to anything from illustration, retail display, print design and visual identity she prides herself on approaching all briefs with creative thought, originality, humour and beauty in mind, whether the work be a commissioned piece or a flight of her own fancy. Her enthusiasm, curiosity and eye for detail have gained her recognition in publications such as the Creative Review, Vogue, ID, and Grafik magazine as one to watch.

The importance of self initiated work within your commercial practice. An insight one year on into how taking a month off commercial projects to do a show last September has impacted my work today.
