Teapot Creative - taking the digital lead in Somerset

Teapot Creative Ltd in Hambridge, Somerset, has taken over directorship of the CIC Digital Somerset (formerly known as Digital Taunton)! Teapot is an agency which uses design and digital creativity to create change for businesses and is, therefore, perfectly skilled for taking over this digital lead for Somerset.

Digital Somerset ran regular events in Taunton which were based around everything digital. It was the brainchild of Shane Griffiths and Jeremy Hyams and was hugely successful. Sadly due to COVID it had to be put on hold but it’s now making a welcome return. Through a mixture of events,  driven by a network of passionate, like-minded people, the goal is to work towards connecting and upskilling professionals around the county.

Teapot Director Lizzie Ginbey said: “We see this as a great opportunity to strengthen what Teapot already does as an agency, as well as be able to give something back to our Somerset community of digitally-minded individuals.”

Fellow Director Barry Tottle said: “Providing a platform for like-minded people to come together and develop new skills is crucial for growth in the industry and to attract a future talent pool, and we look forward to making all sorts of new connections during this business endeavour.”

Digital Somerset co-founder, Jeremy Hyams, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed creating Digital Somerset and the amazing events we were able to run, connecting like minded digital experts from across the South West.”

Fellow co-founder Shane Griffiths added: “The time has come for initiatives such as this to come to the forefront again and we can think of no better people than the fantastic team at Teapot to take up the charge. We look forward to seeing this next stage in the Digital Somerset journey evolve, we know it will be in safe hands.”

Digital Somerset was made up of individuals and businesses who were passionate about ensuring Somerset becomes a hub for digital innovation and collaboration. Teapot’s aim is to continue this dream and create a digital culture which celebrates and encourages innovation and change and will put Somerset on the map for the digital industry.
