Did You Know Digital Kitchen NY Closed?

This was news to us, but thanks to our diligent tipsters, we were made aware that Digital Kitchen shuttered its NY operation recently. A check of the website, which only lists Seattle, LA and Chicago locations, was the first tip-off, and after our phone call to the NYC number was rerouted to the Windy City office, we did indeed receive confirmation that D-K NY shut down on April 1 (of all days).

We’ve been told by sources familiar with the matter that the closing was due to “operational consideration” as the four office structure no longer made sense under Digital Kitchen’s new digital creative agency model. Our source adds that every employee (under 10 total) was offered a new position in one of the other DK locations and some bit, some didn’t. As of beginning of March, D-K’s headcount was at 103 and the shop plans to grow staff by 20 percent by end of 2011.
