New Beginnings


After nearly sixteen years of leading this company, we’re excited to make an announcement: Facebook has agreed to acquire the talent behind Hot Studio.

Several months ago, we began a great working relationship with the Facebook team. During that time, we’ve noticed unique synergies between the two companies in their commitment to foster a robust, collaborative, creative culture, and a relentless desire to create excellent and meaningful experiences for people all around the world.

At Hot Studio, we’ve built a team that amazes us every day with their talent, ambition, and ideas. In joining Facebook, we’ll have the opportunity to unleash that talent at a scale that impacts the way businesses and over a billion people around the world communicate. We’re excited to take this next step together, and join one of the greatest companies in the world.

Over the next few months, we will fulfill all our commitments to our incredible clients to the level of quality and service they’ve come to expect from us.

Thank you to everyone who has joined us on this journey for all these years: all of our employees past and present, our fantastic clients over the years, our families, and the many partners in our community and industry.

With sincere gratitude,
Maria Giudice and Rajan Dev
