DEPT® has taken home the trophy for Large Digital Agency of the Year at the Prolific North Champions Awards.

Previously known as the Prolific North Awards, the ceremony recognises the organisations, teams and individuals putting the North on the map in the creative and digital sectors.

Up against some of the UK’s top digital agencies, DEPT®’s win celebrates its status as one of the fastest growing agencies in the world.

The news came on the same day that DEPT® secured a triple win at the Optimizely Partner Awards, being named ‘Optimizer of the Year’ across three key regions.

Over the past 12 months, DEPT® has been recognised as Large Digital Company of the Year at the Digital City Awards and retained its podium position in Prolific North’s 2021 Top 50 Digital Agencies rankings, coming in third overall and number one in Manchester. 

The team has also secured 11 Webby Awards, was named Agency of The Year at the Lovie Awards and won a global Sitecore Ultimate Experience Award for its work with Triumph Motorcycles.

Brian Robinson, DEPT®’s UK Managing Director, said: “Winning this award is a huge honour and goes to show how our incredible team has flourished even within the toughest constraints. Despite the disruption of the last 18 months, we have demonstrated resilience and optimism and will continue to push the boundaries to help our Depsters, our clients and our community thrive.” 

With ambitions to become the best agency both in and for the world, DEPT® has supported clients to fuel new processes, reduce reliance on in-person services and open new revenue streams throughout the pandemic. We have also introduced a raft of new employee initiatives to boost Depsters’ health and happiness. 

DEPT® is having a major impact on the digital and tech industry, helping to shape the next generation of talent, industry collaboration and leading innovation. Our ability to integrate technology, creativity and data has led us to work with leading brands including London Marathon Events, Nikon and Co-op Live. 

And the future is looking bright. After recently becoming climate neutral certified, which coincided with the release of our first impact report, DEPT® continues on its quest to gain B Corp certification by the end of 2021.
