Emily Forgot is the appropriately curious moniker of London based Graphic Artist & Blogger Emily Alston. Having been working in the creative industry since 2004, she has amassed a diverse range of clients, including Adidas, Orange, MTV, Nokia, Paul Smith, Selfridges and Harrods to name but a few. Along side commercial endeavours Emily produces personal work in the form of limited edition prints and ceramics which are available from The forgot shop. Her work has been exhibited both in London and abroad most notably in 2007 at the “Fragile” show as part of the prestigious Miami Art Basel.
I set up Muse & Maker after posting daily on my own blog under the Emily forgot moniker for the last 3 years. What started off as a place I could simply store things that floated my boat and share with others turned into a fully fledged obsession to find the unexpected in design. I found that not only was the blog taking up more of my time and passion but also reaching a larger audience than I could have ever hoped. It seemed people liked my point of view and I began to feel more confident about my own eye for the unusual and curious aesthetic world around us.
I began posting more and more about design objects, house wares and the innovative makers behind the products I fell for. Coupled with the purchase of a new flat in need of renovation and the urge to develop my work into more product based nature I decided Muse & Maker would provide the perfect platform. To continue in the same vein as the Emily Forgot blog but with an emphasis on unique products and spaces that reflect their owners and their makers.
