We are pleased to announce that Paul Elliot Smith has now joined the board of Somerset Innovation + Design (SID) and we are continuously growing our team of volunteers and design advocates and welcome Paul’s fresh approach to design and the promotion of Somerset as a place of design excellence.

Paul Elliot Smith who has a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design is the Creative Director of Word Gets Around, an ideas led, marketing driven design company based in Taunton. His background is in design for print, with a particular passion for branding identities and associated marketing. His motivation is rooted in ‘creating a buzz’ and helping others to promote businesses. In 2011 he co set up Word Gets Around Networking, an affordable, convenient and informal business networking group.

Paul’s role as a committee member means that he volunteers his time to attend board meetings and to represent SID at design and creative industry meetings and with a focus on networking Paul brings much talent and input into the goals SID aims for.

If you are interested in becoming a committee member of SID or wish to discuss other forms of assistance then do get in touch.

We thank Paul for his dedication to the design sector and hope you all get a chance to meet him at one of our events.
