Neighborhood Guides

VIA MEDIA Guides have been essential tools for concierges in San Francisco’s largest hotels and boutique inns for over a decade. As either a stand-alone project or in partnership with merchant associations in major commercial corridors, VIA MEDIA Guides tell each neighborhood’s unique story by employing rich editorial and illustrated maps. Their primary purpose is to propel visitors and residents to explore the neighborhood and entice them to patronize local small businesses there. The Guides are advertising-supported, representing one of the most cost-effective and highly-targeting marketing investments a neighborhood business can make. VIA MEDIA has proudly published the following neighborhood guides over the years (click on any of the logos below to follow a clickable link to a page-flipping version of one of that neighborhood’s Guides):

Performing Arts Playbills

BAYSTAGES Programs, our sister publishing arm, produces theatre playbills as well as programs for other genres of the performing arts. The leader in its field in the San Francisco Bay Area, BAYSTAGES Programs now offers publishing services to performing arts organizations nationwide. Adapting to the devasting toll the pandemic took on the live performing arts communities worldwide, BAYSTAGES added digital playbills to its portfolio of printed programs and created an all-new hybrid program model that combines the best of both media. BAYSTAGES has published playbills for the following companies over the past six years (several of the logos below feature clickable links to a page-flipping version of a playbill from that company):
