Inc. 5000 recognizes companies that have shown outstanding revenue and growth. The article highlighted how Hot Studio’s focus on visuals, branding and interactive marketing has led the design firm to attract and retain major clients from ebay to Cisco and the Gap.

"We differ from a traditional marketing agency in that we don't do any advertising activities," said President Rajan Dev. "We build things on the Internet that last beyond the traditional advertising campaign." The article also noted Hot Studio’s redesign of Gap, Inc.'s website, based on the vision of tying the company's portfolio of brands together.
