Our story

Stand Out Get Noticed Ltd launched in June 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic

Our story - Stand Out Get Noticed Logo

After taking voluntary redundancy from her role as a Senior Digital Designer in Higher Education, Gemma Wilks, founder of Stand Out Get Noticed Ltd, decided to launch the business during one of the most challenging times we’ve seen in our life time.

From a side hustle to the real deal

Working in a full-time job but not getting 100% job satisfaction didn’t feel right to Gemma, so back in 2006, she started to offer branding and website design and development services to small businesses, as a bit of a side hustle.

This seemed to take of, so much so that she reduced her full-time hours down to four days per week to deal with demand.

She then discovered her passion for photography and has been capturing eye-catching headshots and beautiful on-brand visuals since 2015.

In 2020, Gemma took voluntary redundancy from her job to fulfil her desire to work with a wider variety of people, brands and businesses on a full-time basis.

The rebrand

Gemma operated under a couple of different brands, Photography by Gem and Nottingham Freelance Design. However, she didn’t feel that the true extent of how she could help people was represented.

She decided to work with another designer to create a beautiful brand to appeal to her ideal client.

And we love it!
