Hot Ranks Among the Top 50 Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area


As compiled by the San Francisco Business Times, we are listed as No. 45, a big move up from our ranking of No. 61 from last year.

"Despite the economic downturn and challenging times, Hot Studio continues to grow and thrive," said Maria Giudice, Founder and CEO. "We are very privileged to not only have incredible and resilient clients, but the very best designers and collaborators around. That’s why we’re as successful as we are."

Thanks to clients such as Cisco, eBay, Palm, Warner Music Group, iShares, and Dow Jones, as well as the cultural institutions (such as SFMOMA and the California Academy of Sciences), community organizations, and emerging businesses we’ve partnered with, we’re one of just a handful of design companies to make the Business Times’ list.

This also marks the fifth year Hot has made it on the list. Back in 2006, Hot debuted at No. 91, but over the years we’ve steadily climbed up the rankings. The list, which was released in late September, is based on 2009 revenue.
