e3creative has rebranded as Dept, following its acquisition by the Netherlands group in January.

The Manchester agency had been trading under its previous name until this morning.

“Dept is one of the fastest growing digital agencies in Europe and is on track to becoming one of the leading digital agencies worldwide,”stated Managing Director of Dept UK & US, Jasper van de Luijtgaarden.

“Our enterprising growth strategy involves expanding regional services and acquiring exceptional agencies, like e3creative. These new Depsters not only strengthen Dept’s expertise in branding, design, UX and digital marketing, but also enhance our innovative and high-energy agency culture.”

Jake Welsh, the founder of the agency will continue to lead the Manchester team.

“Joining Dept is an exciting evolution of e3creative as a business; we’ve bolstered our capabilities with a complimentary, full service offering, that is already having a positive impact on our team and clients.

“The growth potential tied to being an internationally recognised agency is exciting for our ambitious team. As Dept, we’re opening gateways to partner with innovating brands we’ve always strived to work with on pivotal projects, such as transforming their digital identity.”

While founded in the Netherlands, Dept acquired Manchester’s Building Blocks in 2016, to establish its base in the North West of England.
