Dept nominated for The Webby Awards

Webby Awards - Dept Agency

Dept has received three honorees and one nomination for The Webby Awards, the world’s leading international award in the digital sector. During the event, The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences rewards a select number of agencies that have delivered exquisite digital work throughout the year. For the 23rd edition of the award show, Dept is in the running for their work “Unravel van Gogh” and has been honored for their cases with Formula E, Samsung, and Philips Hue.

In the category ‘Apps, Mobile and Voice: Culture & Events’, Dept has been nominated for their work on “Unravel Van Gogh”. Commissioned by the Van Gogh Museum, the digital agency developed an application together with Studio Dumbar, in which the user-friendly design illustrated the story of the historical artist.

Aside from the nomination, Dept has also been rewarded with three honorees. Out of the 13,000 submissions, the jury selected solely the best and most eccentric cases. Within the ‘Website’ category, Dept has earned two honoree nominations: one for their Formula E website in the category ‘Sports’ and one for Philips Hue in the ‘Best Navigation & Structure’ category. In the category ‘Advertising, Media & PR: Best Influencer Endorsements’, the authentic storytelling campaign for Samsung received the title ‘honoree’.
