Emily Forgot (UK)
Emily Forgot is the appropriately curious moniker of London based graphic artist Emily Alston. Embracing the odd, the everyday & the sometimes surreal, her playful visual language and image making continues to innovate, evolve and surprise. 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 stood her in good stead so far gaining recognition in publications such as the Creative Review, Vogue, ID, and Grafik magazine as one to watch
Rob Lowe, also known as Supermundane, is an artist, graphic designer, typographer, illustrator and writer with over 20 years experience in the creative industry. His signature mesmeric drawings have been published and exhibited worldwide. In 2012 he debut a new direction of pure line and colour, exploring depth, movement and optical effects. He has been responsible for designing some of the most groundbreaking independent magazines of the last decade including the alternative children’s magazine Anorak and the award-winning food quarterly Fire & Knives. His practice is defined by a distinctive use of colour, line and simplicity which can be seen through all his different disciplines from typeface design to his personal works. He lives and works in London.
