Alexandra Uren Team Leader - Sales & Project Management

Currently on maternity leave - returning August 2020.

Alex is responsible for leading our ever expanding team of sales and project managers. As well as helping other members of the sales team and ensuring all our customers are getting the best service possible, she continues to deal with day to day customer enquiries and projects herself, to make sure she's in touch with the latest stationery business trends.

Alex studied Textiles at university meaning she's got great knowledge of how different materials behave and react. This knowledge, coupled with a passion for beautiful design, makes her a valuable member of our product development team too.

She was brought up in Cornwall and loves being by the sea. When she’s not in or beside the water she enjoys creating her own home furnishings with her sewing machine. Alex loves to travel and being active and outdoors person she enjoys her annual ski trips.

Interesting fact: She was a competitive gymnast for 10 years when she was younger - until school exams and injury got in the way.

Outside of work James has a passion for photography, especially street and weddings and can often be found capturing 'the happy couple' on their special day.

John Pope Senior Sales Advisor & Project Manager

John likes to think of himself as a creative person and has a passion to work in businesses in the creative sector. He brings 4 years experience from working in the print trade to his role.

Outside of work, he enjoys cycling through the countryside (when the weather is warm and not hurricane force winds) and has taken part in a number of cycling events within the past 12 months. He also enjoys socialising with friends, watching motorsports, cooking and going to the gym to burn off the edible creations that he made.

Interesting fact: John is incredibly flexible and is able to lick his own elbow (you try it!)

Favourite Notebook: Leuchtturm1917 genuine leather, finished in ‘cognac’. It has a vintage look to it.

Interesting fact: Jordan's knowledge of the Japanese Edo period (1603 and 1868) under the rule of Tokugawa family is very impressive, if a little niche!

Anna Shields Product Designer & Quality Manager

With strong graphical skills she regularly helps our Design team with artwork for clients too.

In her free time, Anna can be found basking in any bit of sun she can find (even on her office chair in the carpark over lunch). She is a Prosseco connoisseur and has an obsession with all things dinosaur related – her dream pet would be a Komodo Dragon!

Interesting Fact: Anna used to be a tennis player and coach, having completed a level 1 tennis-coaching course.

Ben Targett Graphic Designer

Ben brings over six years commercial experience in branding, design for print, POS, exhibitions and web after studying for a Digital Media degree at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Outside of design, Ben’s passions are playing the drums and cooking. So if he’s not gigging with his cover band he can be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

Interesting fact: Ben was once interviewed (& broadcast!) on an American News Channel whilst in New York about US tax Law!

Favourite Notebook: Classic A5 hardback Moleskine, but 8 Outdoor Media is a favourite finished project.

Katherine Pilkington Content Curator & Marketing Assistant

Katherine has a creative background, boasting an eclectic range of skills from photography to dance, and loves beautiful things - making her a perfect fit for us!  She makes sure our marketing and social media activities run smoothly.

She has previously worked in photography, print and personalized gifts in production, customer services and sales. One of the things she enjoys the most about any job is meeting and welcoming new people - perfect for her other career teaching ballet and for her communications-based role here at Noted in Style.

A health and fitness fanatic, she ran her first marathon recently and is planning her next run!

Interesting fact: Katherine is also a fully qualified ballet teacher and met her idol, Darcey Bussell, at her graduation.

Graham Whitehead Production Manager

Graham brings over 20 years' multi skilled experience in the factory and warehousing sector to his position. Prior to joining us, his last job involved producing high quality leather goods for well known brands. What Graham doesn't know about leather isn't worth knowing! The attention to detail and keen eye required for the hand finishing of those intricate items meant he was perfectly suited to take on a production role here at Noted in Style.

In his spare time Graham enjoys attending beer festivals and is a member of CAMRA.

Interesting fact: He may look like a cuddly uncle, but he is a heavy metal fanatic!

Favourite Notebook: A5 Castelli Tucson bright blue (debossed).

Charmaine Stapley Senior Production Assistant

Charmaine joins us bringing an array of skills from her previous experience working with vinyl, glass etching and heat transfer processes. Charmaine has a real eye for detail and a passion for creative work.

Being a mother of two boys, spare time is limited, but when she does have a moment to relax she loves nothing more than indulging in a DVD box set, such as 'Sons of Anarchy'.

Interesting fact: Charmaine once woke up on the operating table before her surgery had been completed - an experience she describes as very strange!

Favourite Notebook: Pocket Leuchtturm1917 hardback in Emerald (must be lined paper).

Mark Lawrence Production Assistant

During a typical day you’ll find Mark working with his hands to expertly brand your products.

He draws on a decade’s worth of experience in the print industry, having operated litho presses, guillotines, perforators and stitching machines; he even recently worked machinery that added glitter to greetings cards! He has the ability to drive anything, from a forklift to a 7.5 tonne lorry and he’s a wealth of practical knowledge that we are glad to have in the company.

Born-and-bred in Ashford, Mark is proud to be a true Kentish lad. He enjoys spending his spare time with his daughter, watching films or playing video games. He’s even been known to dabble in a spot of ghost hunting at local haunted hot-spots.

Interesting Fact: Mark holds a bronze medallion from the Royal Life Saving Society, so we’re always in safe hands during our team trips to the harbour arm, should one of us take a tumble in to the water.

Laura Turner Business Director

Laura fell into the world of notebooks pretty much by accident when she retired from her first career at the Bar, but she hasn’t looked back since. Having overseen the growth of the company from a cottage industry into its current, ever expanding state, she remains involved in all aspects of the company’s day to day affairs, with a focus on the business and financial side of matters (and needless to say, the legal too!).

Outside of work she is a fitness fanatic and loves outdoor activities such as horse riding, running and cycling and when she's not on the go she's known to enjoy relaxing with a good book and a nice G&T.

Interesting fact: Laura's secret rebellion as a youngster was two tattoos before the age of 18 and a tongue piercing before turning 19 - much to her mother's dismay! She still sports them all now.

Favourite Notebook: A5 Leuchtturm1917 notebook in Emerald.

Gerald Glover Creative Director

Gerald is responsible for the creative direction of Noted in Style and overseeing all aspects of production, including researching new products and branding techniques.

Before growing Noted in Style into the lean, mean branding machine it is today, he ran his own small design agency for seventeen years and prior to this worked for two London agencies specialising in print, branding and web development. Through his experience of working with 'Blue Chip' and smaller companies Gerald appreciates the incredibly tight deadlines that agencies and companies have to work to and has ensured that Noted in Style is geared to be able to meet these.

As a keen kitesurfer he is able to make the most of living and working on the coast. Graphic design, architecture and music are also a passion.

Interesting fact: Gerald has previously built his own house and has grand plans to do so again in the very near future.

Favourite Notebook: Leuchtturm1917 Bi-Colour in Anthracite Grey and Blue.
