The size of a map, the content of a magazine

Stephen Kong and Louis Monoyudis, founders of Bright Blue, are pleased to announce a Fall 2014 redesign for their maps launching OCT. 1, 2014.

The unique tool that specifically targets wealthy overnighters at the nation’s four and five star hotels has re-envisioned its iconic maps with an updated color scheme and 3-D effect. Bright Blue Maps will also introduce a new magazine type format with national edit and has exchanged its paper stock to a heavier option, what they have dubbed the "mapazine".

These subtle changes only add to the high-end accessibility Bright Blue Maps is known for. The new and unique “mapazine” format allows users to page through the map’s rich content, eliminating the embarrassing risk of looking like a tourist unfolding a map while walking down the street.

As founder Stephen Kong points out: “We have been continuously tailoring our product to meet the needs of our clients. The redesign has been crafted to please our most discriminating customers. Visually, it is more pleasing; the maps meet the needs of world class consumers.”

Bright Blue Maps provides detailed maps that locate brand-name retailers in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and Chicago, so guests at luxury hotels can wander around the city of their choice at their leisure, with a hard copy handy for review. Founder Louis Monoyudis states “Bright Blue Maps exists so customers can have easy access to their favorite brands in the palm of their hands. We connect high-end clients with the brands they want to see, and our new layout seals the deal.”

Current advertisers with Bright Blue Maps include Gucci, Burberry, Michael Kors, Audemars Piaget, Panerai, Hublot, Lladro, Cole Haan, Frye and David Yurman, and more. Advertisers love working with Bright Blue Maps because, as one said, “Bright Blue is the original mobile device. No one walks down the street holding a large magazine under their arm, but people definitely have a brochure-sized product like this on them while shopping.”

Patricia Garcia, Guest Relations specialist at the Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles called Bright Blue Maps a “wonderful working tool” that “provide[s] concierge staff with the tools necessary to better service our guests’ needs.” This kind of accessibility makes Bright Blue Maps an ideal product, not only for attracting consumers, but also for protecting brand longevity. Hotel Clients include the Ritz-Carlton, Peninsula, W, Four Seasons, Waldorf-Astoria...over 400 hotels across the country.
