Hinderling Volkart is now called Dept

At the beginning of 2020, Hinderling Volkart joined the globally active digital agency Dept, headquartered in Amsterdam. Now the Zurich-based agency is undergoing a rebranding and is also taking over the agency's name.

The management and founder team of Dept: Michael Hinderling, Beat Muttenzer, Tobias Scholz, Karin Taheny, Lukas Stuber, Stefan Tan, Philipp Griesser, Laura Egloff, Severin Klaus, Michael Volkart (f.o.l.t.r.).

Dept develops digital products, services and campaigns and accelerates the growth of its customers by combining data, creativity and technology. Since joining in early 2020, the Hinderling Volkart team has deepened its collaboration with Dept Digital Marketing over the past months.

Together, the teams have anchored their values in a digital manifesto and redefined the core offering, according to a statement. So now the next logical step has been taken: Hinderling Volkart part of Dept has undergone a rebranding and is now called Dept.

As the first holistic digital agency in Switzerland, the team of around one hundred offers its clients UX & Design, Digital Marketing, Engineering & Technology as well as Branding and Business Consulting in a fully integrated way, Dept continues. The newly created Strategy Unit develops holistic perspectives and models and assembles the optimally staffed team for each project. "We can only convince with our performance if our team thinks and acts in the same direction," explains Michael Hinderling, Managing Partner and Founder. "That's why we wrote a digital manifesto in which we defined and visualized our values and clarified them with guiding principles."

According to Dept, these values and the new image will also be presented to the public in a campaign and with a digital platform at the beginning of October.
