We are extremely pleased to announce that IN10 is taking over the Quest agency. As of today, it is going to get a lot busier on the Kratonkade.
The official press release reads as follows;
IN10 takes over Quest
The Quest agency joins forces with IN10. Together, they have formed an agency with 40 specialists. Quest will be moving into the offices of IN10 on the Kratonkade in Rotterdam on 28 September. Bjorn Stolte (31) will join the management team of IN10. This means the independent agency now has four partners: Arno Wolterman, Xander Zuidgeest, Bjorn Stolte, and Vincent Luyendijk. The merger will allow the agency to immediately add more value to the entire customer journey.
IN10 is a creative digital agency that was founded in 1999. A Rotterdam agency (010) with a digital DNA (1 and 0). IN10 develops innovation platforms, digital strategies, and marketing communication programs. We help brands communicate their message throughout the entire customer journey with high-impact content and services. IN10 is a member of the DDA.
Quest was founded in 2003 and is also a creative digital agency. In 2006, Bjorn Stolte became a partner, and he has been the sole shareholder since 2013. In addition to strategy and creation, Quest also has a powerful development team that is continuously working on technological innovation. In 2013 and 2014, Quest was FD Gazelle.
‘We found each through our shared vision on the role of a modern-day agency. We really want to help our clients to seize the potential opportunities in this time of great change,’ explains Bjorn Stolte. ‘IN10 – just like us – is committed to this digital transformation.’
‘The digital revolution is evolving at an extremely fast pace. This means that as an agency you have added value for your clients if you can help them to develop completely new business concepts, both strategically and hands-on,‘ adds Vincent Luyendijk. ‘This involves a whole lot more than ‘just’ digital communication, and with Quest we have gained a lot of extra power in this field.’
‘In this day and age, you need an agency that is both effective and enterprising. We made our intentions clear at the start of the year, and our main focus is operational growth. With the addition of Quest, we have already taken a huge step in the right direction,’ according to Xander Zuidgeest.
The combined agency will be helping such clients as the Port of Rotterdam Authority, Monuta, Bovag, The Greenery, Duvel, Municipality of Rotterdam, Oxyma, Ster, Rabobank, IFFR, Rotterdampas, Eindhoven Airport, Dierenbescherming, MKB Brandstof, and Erasmus MC.
A hot topic at SXSW ’18 was blockchain. In this blog post, Martijn discusses the problem solving powers of blockchain by examining two types of blockchain initiatives: digital marketplaces and the ticketing industry.
People tend to extrapolate the things they see today into the future. If in 2014 we looked at our smartphone 10 times a day, and in 2018 we did a 100 times, then we can expect to look at our phones 1000 times a day in 2020. This does not have to be the case at all. Niels' visit to SXSW '18 confirmed that our future environments won't be intrusive and overstimulating, but rather ambient and calm.
