Founder & Creative Director | USA
Maria’s passion for design can be measured by the size of her hair which, on a humid day, is crazy big. She founded Hadrout Design for Business to provide state-of-the-art website development, brand management and marketing to start-ups, boutique businesses and those that seek a "wow" presence online and off.
It's said there's no such thing as an original idea. That's hard to believe once you meet Maria.
Not far from the small Russian village she grew up in, Maria graduated from Taganrog State University with an Economics Degree in Information Systems. She came to the United States in 2000 and received her Master’s Degree in Advertising from Michigan State University.
Her portfolio grew at shops such as Cox Advertising in New York and Adams Outdoor Advertising in Ann Arbor; creating award-winning concepts for local, national and international brands. In 2005, Maria collaborated with friend and media guru, Amy Grambeau, to start Orange Egg Advertising. As Orange Egg grew, so did Maria’s entrepreneurial spirit. You might say Hadrout Design for Business hatched from Orange Egg in 2009.
She is an idea catcher, avid scuba diver, animated story-teller, but most of all, a humanitarian. She is actively involved with Detroit non-profit organizations that support city redevelopment. As an ambassador and International Global Village Team Leader for Habitat for Humanity International, she continues to help eliminate homelessness and poverty with new housing in Haiti, Africa and India.
