Our story begins far away in the Caucasus Mountains; perceived as the dividing line between Asia and Europe. As one of the most linguistically and culturally diverse regions on Earth, this land is deemed by ethnographers (the branch of anthropology that deals with the scientific description of specific human cultures) to be in both continents... serving as proof that it is possible to have the best of all worlds.

The conjunction of many ethic groups and countries such as Turkey, Iran, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Russia and Ukraine; this land is a home to ancient Mount Urartu (now Ararat) where according to the book of Genesis, Noah's Ark came to rest over 4,300 years ago...

People...humans...they are what make Hadrout different. There are no "employees" -- we are a family, a community, a circle of people united by one idea. Our offices are in Taganrog, Russia and Ferndale, Michigan, USA; working in unison to make our Clients happy and successful.

Hadroutians are American, Russian, and everything in between...literally. Under one roof, we are Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim and still exploring. We are black, white, orange and purple. We are goofy and serious, clever and creative and defiantly topnotch.

Maria Petrenko
Founder & Art Director

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 / Consumer Psychology 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.
