ShopTalk, a brand and experience design studio, has joined Dept, a digital agency.
The London-based agency will expand the studio’s existing clients while supporting the digital agency’s creative practice in the UK.
Paul Ferry, director and co-founder of ShopTalk, said, “We’re passionate about using brand and creative as powerful commercial tools for companies large and small, lifting them to great things.”
“What really resonated with us at the agency was the boutique level of service that they offer their clients, but with the talent, expertise and scale to provide brand experiences akin to that of a global network agency,” he added.
James Wood, creative director, and co-founder, of ShopTalk, said, “The agency has been making waves in the creative industry for some time now.”
“It was inspiring to spend time with their teams across Europe to witness how they combine marketing, technology and creativity to deliver next-level brand experiences. We’re so excited about this next step for our company,” he added.
Dimi Albers, global chief executive officer of Dept, said, “Ferry, Wood and their team have built an awesome team culture and deliver premium brand experiences and top-notch creativity, while staying fast and flexible.”
“The team has tons of experience and will bring our branding and experience design work to the next-level,” he added.
