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.

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.
Jordan joins the Sales and Project Management team to respond to customer enquires and oversee orders through to dispatch. His experience as a retail manager has prepared him well for the role at Noted in Style, and with him, he brings a bright and positive attitude.
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!
Favourite Notebook: Paperblanks Midi Old Leather Journal in Flint with a gold foil print.
As a notebook obsessive, Joe can't believe his luck in getting his first 'proper job' after graduating from university at a stationery company!
He’s part of our Sales and Project Management team and is ready to answer your calls and make sure you stay updated throughout the order process. When he’s not at work, he writes, climbs rocks and builds computers - he's clearly a firm believer that free time was made to be filled!
Whilst studying at Sussex University Joe worked in several bars and restaurants in Brighton, honing killer skills in cocktail and coffee making - so when you speak to him, feel free to ask for tips on making the perfect margarita or getting your milk to froth nicely, alongside stationery advice!
Interesting fact: Joe once spent an entire night locked in a gymnastics centre after falling asleep in the foam pit. (Don’t worry, what he lacks in gymnastics talent, he makes up for in sales and customer service skills).
Favourite notebook: Eco Flexi notebook in Green with a hot foil print.
Anna puts her degree in Industrial Design & Technology from Brunel University to good use here at Noted in Style. Her keen eye for detail, hands-on practical skills and ability to problem solve makes her the perfect person to design and create new and exciting products for the business. 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.
Favourite Notebook: A5 Genuine Leather Leuchtturm1917 notebook in Cognac.
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 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).
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 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 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.
