MarCom Awards 2023: Local Agency wins Prestigious Gold and Platinum Awards

Awards season never disappoints. This year, Shift ONE Digital achieved remarkable success at the MarCom 2023 Awards, winning multiple accolades in four categories. 

From spearheading Mobius Consulting’s rebrand and website redesign, to driving extraordinary e-commerce conversions for Hertex Haus, and boosting online sales for The Unlimited, our awarded projects reflect our commitment to pushing boundaries and setting new standards in the industry. 

Most importantly, these awards reflect the impactful results our work delivers for clients worldwide.   

“Awards are just confirmation from the industry that we are doing great work,” says Dylan Kohsltadt, Founder and CEO from her offices in Hannover, Germany. “Since 2011 we’ve made delivering value to our clients our key focus. Value usually means brand awareness and business growth. We know what matters to them, and that’s what we focus on.”

Securing Digital Trust through Innovative Design

In 2022, Mobius Consulting approached Shift ONE to redesign and develop its website. The global organisation (award-winners in their own right) wanted to ensure their website reflected their commitment to Securing Digital Trust, and our team collaborated with Mobius Consulting’s leaders to make this happen.
