In 2007, Digital Grafic Ibiza took over Ibiza’s only classified ads newspaper: De Todo en Ibiza. After fours years of continuing it in its original form, we decided to convert it into a complete newspaper that specialized in printing Good News! It is the only island newspaper on Ibiza that is published in both Spanish and English, and certainly the only Good News newspaper in the Balearics – and perhaps in all of Spain.
Our motivation is to counteract the mass media which publishes predominantly negative news that leaves readers feeling fearful and despondent. We see the world in a different light, and choose to celebrate all of the good that is happening. Never in the history of humanity have there been so many positive scientific discoveries and inventions, along with so much humour, intelligence and creativity. We are proud to be part of a worldwide movement that is bringing to light all of the progress that is being made to solve the challenges that we face. Our goal is to replace the fear and pessimism of the mainstream media with the joy and optimism of all the good news that is happening every day. To that end we have changed the name of our newspaper from De Todo en Ibiza to Ibiza OPTIMISTA, because it reflects more clearly the spirit of our publication.
The paper is published on the first of every month, and we distribute 17,000 copies for free throughout the island. We have over 100 of our own stands located in petrol stations, shops, newsagents, government buildings, supermarkets, etc. We also distribute in banks, restaurants, cafes, bus stations, medical offices, and many other island hotspots.
All of our Good News articles (past and present) plus the classified ads can also be found on our website: www.ibizaoptimista.com
Our "Ibiza Formentera App" (free download) is adaptable to mobiles (Android and iOS), as well as tablets. Together with our webpage, www.IbizaFormenteraTheGuide.com, we unite all of our publications: Ibiza La Guía, Formentera La Guía, Isla Blanca Ibiza Guide, the IbiCasa magazine and the Ibiza Optimista newspaper. Combined they give us the most comprehensive app and website on Ibiza and Formentera offering more than 700 services including restaurants, home services, building, fashion, jewellery, real estate, wellbeing, health, hotels and more. The App is helpful to both tourists and island residents, and it is the only three language (English, Spanish and German) App on Ibiza.
