Los Angeles-based brand building. Marketing with global reach.


We’re not a real kitchen.

The Kitchen Collaborative is an award-winning Los Angeles-based creative agency that builds brands across all modern touchpoints, born from a strong desire to disrupt the typical top-heavy ad agency. When you take away the politics, titles and extravagant overheads, what’s left? Creative agility. A leaner, more efficient process. The ability to harness the best talent for each challenge. And a focus on creating premium creative services that are individually tailored to meet each and every client’s goals.


  • We work smart and we do smart work

    The Kitchen is comprised of a diverse group of talented, experienced, and highly specialized creative professionals. We pair each project with the right individuals needed to execute the scope of work, creating a unique, customized, and efficient team tailored to each client’s needs. Our flexible structure gives us the ability to work with clients of all shapes and sizes and in a variety of industries.

  • Our Network

    Our vast network of local vendors and resources, from printers to packaging suppliers to talent agencies, streamlines the production process and eliminates the need for the client to manage multiple vendors. All creative and production talent is managed with consistent leadership and vision, ensuring a strong and reliable brand execution. We think that’s all pretty smart — and so do our clients.

  • Women and branding

    According to current research, women make or inform 80-90% of all purchasing decisions in today’s marketplace. Although we work in many different markets, we offer a unique specialty in developing female-targeted brands. After all, we love shopping too.

Tour our LA studio.

We are located in the Greater Los Angeles area in the heart of the media district of Burbank, California. Our studio was initially constructed in 1951 as a tool and die shop to service Burbank’s once dominant aerospace industry. When we renovated the building, we kept many of the original mid century details that hark back to a time when Burbank was known more for industrial production instead of its current reputation as the media capital of the world. Our dedicated in-house photo studio includes all the bells and whistles of a modern production facility including an open loft-style layout, state-of-the-art equipment, and artistic backdrops.
