Innovator, artist, protagonist, activist, and positive provocateur, Maria Giudice has pursued a vision of intelligent, elegant, people-centered design throughout her professional life. Her grasp of the pragmatic, the authentic, and the essential have kept her at the forefront of design and business for over 30 years.
When Facebook acquired Hot Studio, a design agency, founder Maria Giudice felt some sense of validation. For some, design is an after-thought. The acquisition sent a message to companies all over, “Design is strategic. It’s not just execution.”
Her expertise lies in fostering a vision and bringing people together to execute it. She knows how to overcome team silos and lead with influence instead of authority.
