Visit Oakland, the city’s official destination marketing organization, celebrates the release of their new 2018 Visit Oakland Inspiration Guide.

The newly-designed visitor guide, published by Diablo Publications, features an all-new layout to emphasize the colorful, visual sights of the destination. After the well-received illustrated cover of last year’s edition, Visit Oakland commissioned original artwork from artist Tom Cole specifically for this year’s print. The illustration pays homage to the vibrant nightlife of Oakland, with an interpretation of the Uptown neighborhood and the famed Fox Theatre. The guide’s magazine-style layout is also completely revamped to reflect original editorial content and custom photos.

“Our team was once again delighted to be involved in bringing Oakland’s one of-a-kind stories to life. The guide, like the city is colorful, entertaining and jammed packed with dynamic content that will appeal to all visiting Oakland,” says Barney Fonzi, President of Diablo Publications.

The content-driven and photo-centric Visit Oakland Inspiration Guide is available now throughout the Bay Area. Over 75K copies of the guide will be distributed at all major airports, California State Welcome Centers, neighboring tourism bureaus, Oakland hotels and Oakland attractions.
