Todd Brandes Out at Digital Kitchen

After two-and-a-half years at Digital Kitchen, managing director/partner Todd Brandes has parted ways with the shop, which has done work for the likes of HBO, Microsoft and Discovery Channel (they still get props for the seedy, brooding True Blood intro).

Despite tipsters’ comments that Brandes–who worked out of DK’s Chicago office–was “fired,” we’ve been told that his departure was amicable, though it’s still undetermined as to why he left or where he’s headed to next. Prior to Digital Kitchen, Brandes spent well over a decade at DDB, working as a global account director on business such as McDonald’s and Anheuser-Busch  before moving up to VP, executive producer . The exec also spent a year as global director of advertising and content for Motorola mobile devices.
