Manchester-based e3creative has joined an international agency based in Amsterdam.

Founded in 2010 by Jake Welsh, the firm is teaming up with Dept.

e3creative recently experienced rapid growth, doubling its revenue in 2017 and growing to a team of over 60 people.

Dept employs a team of 1,150 people operating out of 11 countries in Europe and the USA, with a revenue of over €130 million.

In 2016, Dept acquired the Manchester-based digital agency Building Blocks, which rebranded as Dept in 2018.

Dept is expanding its service offering in the UK and across the globe by organically, growing and launching commerce, digital marketing and marketplace teams.

As a result of the deal, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville is leaving the business.
