Innovator, artist, protagonist, and positive provocateur, Maria Giudice has pursued a vision of intelligent, elegant, people-centered design throughout her professional life. Under Maria’s leadership, Hot Studio, the experience design firm she founded in 1997, grew into a full-service creative agency with an impressive list of Fortune 500 clients. In March 2013, Facebook acquired the talent behind Hot Studio in one of their largest “acqui-hires” to date, where Maria now works as Director of Product Design.
Maria presented at our February MetaTalk, a monthly lecture series that showcases the Bay Area’s top thought leaders in branding and design. Her latest book is Rise of the DEO, Leadership by Design.
