Creative content and experience company Digital Kitchen has named Anthony Vitagliano as President and Chief Creative Officer, a new position at the company.
In making the announcement, Don McNeill, Co-Founder and CEO of the 20-year-old company noted that “Anthony has driven DK’s powerful and dynamic creative ethos behind a belief in building brand experiences for our clients that engage consumers through a sense of belonging. His vision and craft have always elevated our work, unified our multiple offices and strengthened our culture. Most importantly his leadership has resulted in amazing and successful work product for our clients.”
Vitagliano has served as DK’s director of experience design for 14 years where he is credited with designing stand-out experiences for brands and public spaces including such recent installations as the LAX International Terminal, The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas and the brand launch of West Elm Hotels.

“DK has evolved into a company that transforms businesses through creative experiences,” noted Vitagliano. “We use creativity to grow stronger and more positive communities for the brands we partner with. Our best work, whether it’s an environment, product, marketing assignment or content experience, aligns with our guiding principle—design for a sense of belonging. We believe that the feeling of belonging is a fundamental human need. People want to fill their lives with and return to, the things that create this feeling. Through an understanding of human behavior, storytelling and artistry we create experiences that make people feel like they truly belong.”
