Buying an old GMC showroom, Hadden specializes in anything from custom truck lettering, graphic design, boat refurbishing to freehand pinstriping. His shop has a retail store and paint shop, where he hosts Iwata clinics for local artists. His work has been featured in Sign Business, Hot Boat, and Trucking magazines.
