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?
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.

As one of the longest serving members of the Noted In Style team, Holly has tonnes of experience and the extensive knowledge that comes with the job. She’s responsible for managing projects for her own client base from beginning to end and assists newer members of our ever-growing sales team. She’s also responsible for helping with book-keeping and credit control matters.
Outside of work Holly enjoys nature photography in and around the Folkestone area, particularly seabirds along the coastal paths. Her knowledge of dinosaurs and prehistoric life is second to none, and her desk is littered with little dinosaurs. Holly has a major soft-spot for cats, and has recently adopted a rescue called Spook. The other passion in her life is craft gin and she’s started a mini gin bar (originally a breakfast bar!) in her kitchen and looks forward to receiving her gin subscription boxes, that are slowly growing her collection.
Interesting fact: Holly was born in and spent her early years in South Africa, although you’d be hard pushed to spot it in her accent.

You know those people who have travelled the world, had exciting jobs and have loads of interesting skills? Well that’s Fallon, our newest member of the Sales & Project Management team.
She draws on years of creative and business experience having gained a degree in fine art (specialising in print making), been a visual merchandiser for a jewellery brand, been a seamstress in the fashion and costume industry in London and now crafting her own silver jewellery range to sell online. She’s lived all over Britain, from Newcastle to London, and even came to reside in Australia for a year.

Interesting fact: Fallon has worked on lots of different outfits and costumes for big stars in the showbiz industry. The most impressive perhaps being Lady Gaga who needed Fallon to sew up her stage pants!
Favourite Notebook: A5 Leuchtturm1917 notebook in Army with a copper foil.
Jack is the newest member of our sales team, responsible for managing your orders from start to finish, doing so with a refreshingly friendly and lively attitude.
He has lots of practical experience in sales and marketing from his work as a marketing manager at a recruitment agency and as a sales advisor for a gym chain. His coolest job, we think, was at our local chippy just around the corner, however.
Jack has recently returned from the North of England, where he spent four years studying Business Management at the University of Huddersfield and a further year completing a Masters in Strategic Management at the University of Leeds. Having finished his studies, he’s glad to be back on home turf and is ready to kick-start his career with Noted In Style!
In his spare time, Jack has many hobbies, including (but we suspect not limited to): training for running events, football, squash, badminton, skiing, yoga, cooking and he’s recently taken up snowboarding at our local dry slope. He’s a real Jack-of-all-trades, you might say…
Interesting Fact: Jack made the final four in a badminton youth tournament looking for future Badminton stars to play in London 2012 Olympics. Pretty impressive!
Favourite Notebook: A5 Leuchtturm1917 genuine leather notebook in Cognac with a copper foil.
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).
Originally from Cambridge, Ashley brings over 15 years ‘hands on’ experience in the electronics field producing goods like satellite navigation systems, scientific equipment and radios for the emergency services. 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.
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.
Ben joins us bringing over three 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 football. So if he’s not gigging with his cover band he can be found having a kick around with friends.
Interesting fact: Ben was once interviewed (& broadcast!) on an American News Channel whilst in New York about US tax Law!
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.
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.

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.
