Meet the award
winning team

We have an award winning in-house sales, design and production team based on the sunny (sometimes!) South Coast of England. We’re all very different, but we all share the same passion for making great products and providing great service.

Our sales people love to help and are on hand to guide you to the perfect product for your needs. Our designers can assist you with artwork and are always happy to discuss and offer advice on the best way to achieve the right impression you are looking to create. If you require a full design service, including product design, that’s something we can offer too. Our production team take great pride in their work and love making beautiful things and trying new creative ideas on products.

Why not get in touch and put us all to the test for your next project?

Ashley’s approach to dismantling everything to see how they work and re-assembling fits perfectly with his production role, as all our processes are done by hand. His former technical production experience has given him a keen eye for detail and a precise approach, meaning that nothing gets past him when it comes to quality control.

In his spare time Ashley enjoys fixing computers (more dismantling) and Asian cooking.

Interesting fact: Ashley lived in Shanghai for a year and has been a frequent visitor to Hong Kong.

Favourite notebook: Under investigation – more dismantling to be done to decide.

Laura Turner Laura Turner

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.

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 Gerald Glover

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.
