Jean Aw is a 20-something designer, trendspotter, and entrepreneur. She holds a Masters Degree in User Experience Design where she focused on both conceptual and visual design and usability research.
She has since channeled her education and design into NOTCOT Inc, a network of informative and collaborative websites that doubles as a design consultancy. By keeping her readers (and her readers keeping her) on the cutting edge of design, this network demonstrates, inspires, and promotes smart, simple user experiences while stimulating a visual, aesthetic and textual dialogue between users and designers.
While currently based in her hometown of Los Angeles, CA, she is very mobile, hopping around the country and across the globe, entrenching herself in international culture and their respective design hotspots. She often finds the most incredible things in the most unlikely of places and loves bringing them to her readers, often leaving them wondering whether the treasure was in their existence or in their discovery.

Marcia is not only a writer, but a cocktail connoisseur (and author of DIY Cocktails), organizational mastermind, advertising strategist, and the woman behind the holiday fun at NOTCOT.
Daniel brings both a passion for elegant, intuitive interfaces and unparalleled technical expertise to Notcot. Day to day, he keeps NOTCOT alive and kicking for your viewing pleasure, repeatedly saving the day and incorporating all of our latest features. Combining intuitive designs with their technical architecture comes naturally to Daniel, who holds a BS in Cognitive Science, and is currently going for his PhD (that's right, he can get in your head). Once upon a time, NOTCOT was run out of a server in his closet.

Anna Corpron is one half of Sub-Studio, a collaboration that began in New York City in 2004 when she and Sean Auyeung forged a design partnership to combine their individual creative interests. When not collaborating on new designs for Sub-Studio, Anna can be found developing her line of jewelry, Brevity, or "internerding", as Sean likes to call it. Which works out well, since that's where Anna digs up most of her posts for NOTCOT and the Sub-Studio Design Blog.
