            Jake Posner NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING
            JAKE POSNER, FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR. IS AN AMBASSADOR FOR THE BRITISH DYSLEXIA ASSOCIATION.
            JAKE USES HIS PLATFORM AND STORY TO RAISE THE PROFILE OF THE LIFE-CHANGING WORK, AND INCREASE AWARENESS OF WHY THE BRITISH DYSLEXIA ASSOCIATION IS SO IMPORTANT.

            IN—TRO—DUC—TION:

            'NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING, IT’S MADE TO NOT MAKE SENSE. THE SLOGAN I GUESS SUMS THAT UP: NO ONE SENSE MADE NON/SENSE'

            WHEN YOU SCRATCH THE SURFACE, NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING HAS A MUCH DEEPER MEANING; IT COMES FROM AN OUTLOOK ON HOW THE WORLD AND PEOPLE WORK. THERE IS ALWAYS NEARLY AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE OR HIDDEN AGENDA BEHIND THINGS.

            SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO DIG DEEPER TO FIND THE ANSWERS OR LOOK AT SOMETHING FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.

            PEOPLE UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPT AND MESSAGING OF NOTA IS AS IMPORTANT AS PEOPLE BUYING THE PRODUCTS. WE WANT TO TELL THE STORY AND EXPLAIN THE INTERPRETATION OF THE BRAND.

            PERFECTION AND CONSISTENCY IS SOMETHING THAT IS IMPORTANT TO NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING.

            BUT AT THE SAME TIME, NOTA CREATES CREATIVE IMPERFECTIONS WITHOUT CONSISTENCY TO SHOWCASE A SLIGHTLY OBSCURE PERSPECTIVE.

            THAT’S WHERE THE DYSLEXIA COMES TO THE FORE, WE SEE THINGS IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

             Jake Posner NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING

            JAKE POSNER. NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR.

            'BY THE WAY, I PROMISE I'M NOT SHOUTING. I WRITE IN BLOCK CAPITALS. THAT’S HOW MUCH THE BRAND REFLECTS MY THINKING.'

            THE APPROACH AND THINKING BEHIND NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING, IS TO CAPTIVATE AN AUDIENCE WITH NON/SENSE.
            JAKE IS DYSLEXIC, WITH HIS MIND PROCESSING WORDS BY BREAKING THEM INTO SYLLABLES. THE KEY BRANDING REFLECTS THIS IN THE "DEB—UT" COLLECTION.
            SOMEHOW THOUGH, HERE HE IS: A DYSLEXIC THROWN OUT OF SCHOOL AT 16 AND TOLD HE WOULD "AMOUNT TO NOTHING" BY TEACHERS, FAMILY MEMBERS AND PEERS.
            AGAINST ALL THE ODDS, WITH THE DEROGATORY WORDS FROM INDIVIDUALS RINGING LOUD AND CLEAR IN HIS MIND, HE HAS THE AIM OF INSPIRING AND ENGAGING OTHERS; BREAKING BOUNDARIES.
            PLEASE ENJOY LEARNING MORE: JAKE / NOTA VISIONARY.

            OUR LOGO: REPRESENTS THE 5 NOTA PILLARS

            NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING logo

            1. A VISION TO CREATE THE SUSTAINABILITY BENCHMARK WITHIN FASHION, WHICH INSPIRES OTHERS TO FOLLOW, TO FABRICATE A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE + CIRCULAR INDUSTRY.

            2. A COMMUNITY WHERE PEOPLE WANT TO BELONG DUE TO SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES.

              SHARING PERSPECTIVES AND DISPENSING IDEAS TO COMBINE OUTLOOKS WHICH STIMULATE A THOUGHT PROCESS.

              A SENSE OF SELF EXPRESSION + A SENSE OF INDIVIDUALITY = A SENSE OF COMMUNITY.

            3. FROM INNOVATING NEW RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PRACTICES WITHIN THE SUPPLY CHAIN, TO PRESENTING NEW INNOVATIVE, HARM REDUCTION TECHNIQUES AND IDEAS, TO GOVERNMENTS AND REGULATORS FOR THE FASHION INDUSTRY AND BEYOND.

            4. IT'S OUR MIDDLE FINGER TO RULES AND IT'S OUR WAY OF BREAKING BOUNDARIES. WE ARE GOING TO BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY OURSELVES WHEN IT COMES TO CREATIVITY, EXPRESSION AND INDIVIDUALITY.

            5. EVERY ELEMENT OF NOTA IS NOT JUST A FORM OF IMAGINATION, BUT COMPRISES A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF REALITY.

              INTERTWINING THESE TWO ELEMENTS, CREATES A POWERFUL FASCINATION, WHILE INITIATING COMMUNICATION, BETWEEN OURSELVES AND THE PUBLIC. 

            SUSTAINABILITY: IN FASHIONNO ONE TRUE ANYTHING Sustainable Fashion Diagram

            SUSTAINABILITY IS LIKE THE FOOD CHAIN; IT STARTS AT THE BEGINNING - WITH NATURE. THE NEXT STEP OF THE SUSTAINABILITY JOURNEY IN FASHION'S CASE, IS THE MATERIALS/CROPS.

            NEXT, IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE SUSTAINABILITY CHAIN... HUMANS.

            WITHOUT PAYING PEOPLE WHO HARVEST MATERIALS AND CREATE CLOTHING MORE THAN A FAIR AND LIVING WAGE, THE SUSTAINABILITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE CHAIN, IS ALREADY RUINED.

            IF PEOPLE ARE NOT PAID MORE THAN A FAIR AND LIVING WAGE, HOW ARE THEY EVER MEANT TO CREATE A BETTER ENVIRONMENT FOR THEMSELVES OR HAVE A GOOD CARE/HEALTH SYSTEM?

            THE BIGGER THE WORLD’S POPULATION WHO DO NOT HAVE A GOOD LOCAL ENVIRONMENT, THE MORE THIS AFFECTS THE WHOLE WORLD'S ENVIRONMENT.

            THE CLIMATE CRISIS IS NOW AFFECTING THE ECONOMICALLY DEVELOPED COUNTRIES AS MUCH AS IT IS THE UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES, AND WE NEED TO BETTER SUPPORT UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES.

            THE UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES DON’T HAVE THE MONEY FOR GREEN ENERGY. THE DEVELOPED COUNTRIES NEED TO SUPPORT THE UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES TO MAKE A CHANGE, WITH GRANTS AND NOT LOANS.

            'THE WORLD NEEDS TO BECOME CIRCULAR, BY IMPROVING PRODUCTION PRACTICES AND REUSING EXISTING MATERIALS; NOT JUST IN FASHION, BUT ACROSS EVERYTHING HUMANS USE, MAKE AND CONSUME.'

            NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING made in Portugal Water Recyling

            A PICTURE OF THE WATER BEING RECYCLED TAKEN BY JAKE AT ONE OF OUR PORTUGUESE MANUFACTURING FACILITIES.

            WE’RE MAKING CLOTHES USING INNOVATIVE, SUSTAINABLE, CIRCULAR AND FUTURE PROOF PROCESSES.

            WE ARE USING ORGANIC MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION PROCESSES THAT USE NEW WATER SAVING TECHNOLOGY, WHILE MOST IMPORTANTLY, ENSURING OUR SUPPLY CHAIN IS CIRCULAR, HUMANE AND FAIR.

            ALL OF OUR GARMENTS ARE MADE IN PORTUGAL, ALONG SIDE SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN HIGH-END FASHION.

            HIGH END AND LUXURY FASHION BRANDS NEED TO BECOME MORE AUTHENTIC AGAIN.

            BRANDS NEED TO REALIGN WITH THEIR FOUNDING ETHOS, OTHERWISE THE LINES WILL BECOME BLURRED BETWEEN WHAT IS ABSENT-MINDED MERCHANDISE AND WHAT SHOULD BE TRULY REVERED AS THOUGHTFUL AND ENCAPSULATING DESIGN AND CRAFT.

             THE FU—TURE

            NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING The Future

            'WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF PEOPLE WHO DEMONSTRATE CREATIVITY, INDIVIDUALITY AND SELF EXPRESSION.

            WE SHOULD ENSURE THESE PEOPLE ARE GIVEN A VOICE, A PLATFORM AND A WAY TO DISPLAY THEIR TALENT AND THOUGHT PROCESSING.'

            OF COURSE I WANT TO CARRY ON DESIGNING CLOTHING AND INNOVATING NEW PRACTICES, BUT I ALSO WANT NOTA TO BECOME A COMMUNITY, WHERE PEOPLE BUY INTO THE CONCEPT AND THE VISION OF THE BRAND AS MUCH AS THEY DO THE PRODUCTS.

            BEING A DYSLEXIC AND FAILING SO BADLY AT SCHOOL, BEING THROWN OUT WITH 1 GCSE AT 16 AND NOT KNOWING WHERE TO TURN, IT WAS A REALLY DIFFICULT STAGE IN MY LIFE.

            BECAUSE OF THIS, MY DREAM IS TO CREATE WORKSHOPS AND SPACES FOR PEOPLE WHO STRUGGLE AT SCHOOL, TO SHARE THEIR CREATIVITY AND IDEAS, WHETHER THAT BE IN FASHION, MUSIC, ART OR WHATEVER ELSE. TO CREATE A PLACE WHERE WE CAN HARNESS THEIR IDEAS AND HELP THEM ELABORATE ON THEM, TO BRING THEM FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY.

            IF I COULD CREATE SPACES LIKE THESE, THAT WOULD BE A SERIOUS ACHIEVEMENT.
