Dept and BASIC win eleven Webby Awards

by Marjan Straathof

May 20, 2021

Today the winners of the 2021 Webby Awards were announced, and digital agency Dept and BASIC (part of Dept) were honoured with eleven awards. The agencies were recognized for their work for Google, Patagonia, Steelseries, GANNI, Van Gogh Museum, Honig, Muuto, and BASIC’s own cultural initiative, Crafted.

The e-commerce platform for Patagonia, the Google Store work that was co-created with Google, and the Van Gogh Museum website that was created with tech agency Q42 earned both a Webby jury award as well as a People's Voice Webby award.

Dept was recognized twice in the Virtual & Remote category. The interactive digital showroom built for GANNI was named the People’s Voice winner in Fashion & Retail, and the ‘Live Eet’-campaign with Honig that supported the Dutch Foodbanks was recognised in the Brand or Partner Experience category. Furniture retailer Muuto’s new digital platform for B2B and B2C customers received a People’s Voice award in the Shopping subcategory. Finally, SteelSeries was honored with a People’s Voice award in Advertising, Media & PR: Best Growth Strategy for its full-funnel media strategy.

A special Webby jury award this year went to BASIC’s own project, Crafted, which is a cultural initiative that celebrates diversity and unites creators, was named the winner in the Corporate Social Responsibility subcategory.

Dimi Albers, ceo of Dept: “We have experienced phenomenal growth in the past year. Not only in our company size, client portfolio and project size, but also in the quality of work and the expansion of our knowledge and abilities. I am super proud of our Depsters and talented colleagues at BASIC, amazing client collaborations and the opportunities that have been given to us. We are honoured to receive eleven Webby awards, which validates our worldwide growth journey. Therefore, a big thanks to the jury and public voters who also helped to make this happen.”
