Press Information & Resources
In April 2017, My Guide was unveiled as the new brand name for the award winning global online guide network started in 2007 and known previously as My Destination.
The new My Guide brand name and logo not only reflects our strategy to offer the most insightful online guides driven by local experts ‘in the know’ it is also supporting the planned introduction of new functionality to enable users to personalise their research and create their own guides when visiting our websites which can be shared with friends and family. "Our goal with this individual and personalised My Guide functionality is to be the ‘Spotify for Travel’" says Mark Wallis, Owner and CEO of the My Guide Network.
We believe that My Guide's new brand identity—specifically its fresh colour palette, sense of purpose, modern open type face and creative bridge to our old logo —gives us a forward-looking, energised identity that reflects and projects a modern, dynamic and truly global association.
Successful technology companies evolve over time; our platform has most certainly advanced dramatically since the company’s birth and it’s very first “bedroom built” Marbella website and the new My Guide brand name doesn’t just describe exactly who we are in a much more succinct way it also signifies the exciting and engaging approach we are taking for the company moving forward.
