Three nominations for The Webby Awards


The Webby Awards, the leading international award honoring excellence on the internet, have revealed the nominations for their 22nd edition. Dept has received three nominations and is made Honoree three times.

In the category ‘Art’, Dept earned a nomination for the work they delivered for the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. This cross-media campaign was developed on the occasion of ‘100 years Mondriaan and De Stijl’.

The app that Dept developed for the energy company Oxxio swept the board, with nominations in two categories; ‘Service & Utilities’ and ‘Bots’. With the online tool, Dept intended to make insights in energy consumption more accessible and relevant.

3 times Honoree

Every year, out of more than 13,000 entries, The Webby Awards recognize a few campaigns of exceptional quality. From Dept, the new website of merchant bank Kempen distinguished itself in the category ‘Best Visual Design – Aesthetic’ and the Mondriaan campaign was also rewarded in the category ‘Cultural Institutions’. This year, Studio Dumbar (part of Dept) was also named as a Webby Honoree for the ‘best homepage’ category for their work on the website of the Dutch insurance group a.s.r.
