Dept wins two Webby Awards with Bugaboo and DEMO festival
Today the winners of the Webby Awards were announced. A judging body existing of more than two thousand industry experts and tech innovators selected their favourites for the renowned award of excellence on the internet. Dept was nominated twice, received three honorees and eventually won two awards with Bugaboo and DEMO Festival.
Together with Bugaboo, Dept won a Webby in the category ‘Shopping’. The parties worked on the implementation of a brand new CMS, the creation of a new design with Page Designer and a platform migration to Salesforce Commerce Cloud. Within four months, they launched the new Bugaboo.com website.
The Design in Motion (DEMO) Festival received an award in the category ‘Best Use of Animation or Motion Graphics’. This initiative by Studio Dumbar (part of Dept) took place last fall. It displayed the best motion design work from all over the world across eighty digital screens at Amsterdam Central Station. In total, the festival gathered over 2,700 design submissions.
“Winning two Webby Awards is an enormous compliment for our organisation and the hard work every Depster contributes on a daily basis”, says Dimi Albers, CEO at Dept. “To receive this recognition in the field of creativity, technology and data provides us with more energy to keep building and accelerating our clients’ digital businesses.”
