Dept is a digital agency for creativity, technology and data, helping clients to build and accelerate their digital business by creating leading digital products, services and campaigns. Founded in Amsterdam in 2015, Dept has speedily grown across the globe. In the last four and a half years, the Dept team has grown from 150 people in The Netherlands to more than 1500 people in thirteen countries across Europe and the Americas. In this period, Dept’s revenue has grown by 500% thanks to its work with brands such as Samsung, Bose, Formula E, Bugaboo, Indigo Ag, Triumph Motorcycles, and Netflix.
“Achieving triple-digit growth year-on-year is a massive achievement”, says Dept Global CEO Dimi Albers. “We help our clients grow their digital business at a rapid pace, and are proud that Dept is growing with them. Our ethos of being ‘big enough to cope, but small enough to care’ continues to resonate with brands that want to work with an agency that has the scale to execute globally, but with a boutique-agency feel. Maintaining our agency culture and steering the business on our clients-first philosophy will continue to drive our growth as we look towards a thriving 2021.”
Dept has recorded high levels of growth by bolstering its full service offering with specialist agencies that supplement its strategy, either from a capability or a geography perspective. Uniting these widely skilled teams under one brand allows the agency to combine skills seamlessly as an integrated team. Utilising creativity, technology and data to collaborate faster and smarter enables the agency to produce groundbreaking work.
