superReal (part of Dept) has once again expanded its management from within its own ranks. Since August 2018, Verena Sandbote has been heading the Hamburg-based digital agency, together with Volker Will, Oliver Cloppenburg, and Jan Gutkuhn. As one of the managing directors, she is responsible for driving superReal’s creative department.
40-year-old Verena Sandbote started working for superReal in 2007. Since 2009, she has been in charge of the development and expansion of the design team as a creative director.
Award Winning Team
At superReal, interdisciplinary teams develop e-commerce solutions for fashion and lifestyle brands as well as innovative digital services. Since the beginning of the year, superReal’s creative department has won more than thirty awards for their creative design of digital brand experiences.
Award-winning projects included design, user experience and the development of creative content for clients such as dorothee-schumacher.com, hessnatur.de, qs-designedby.de, birkenstock.com and the s.Oliver App.
Verena Sandbote: “The unique combination of branding and performance is our declared intention. We meet this challenge with a consistent focus on the needs of users, the courage to innovate and our high aesthetic standards. I am delighted to be able to continually improve the creative environment for the employees and the services we offer to our customers together with Dept.”
Volker Will: “We are very pleased to have Verena completing our management board. I appreciate her work style, her commitment and her great empathy for the needs of our customers and employees alike.
We had already asked her to become managing director two years ago and now she has finally agreed.”
