Siegel+Gale Partners With Hightail (formerly YouSendIt) On Rebrand

Hightail, which has over 43 million global users, saw the need for a new name and brand that reflects its expansion as a company with product offerings beyond file sharing. The strategy and creative work by Siegel+Gale addresses the breadth of its products, looks toward the future and expands upon Hightail's original use of sending large files.

"Hightail brings humanity to what was the YouSendIt brand," said Nikolas Contis, global director of naming for Siegel+Gale. "The new name elevates the brand, and brings forth the passion and drive of Hightail's customers."

The name Hightail suggests the ideas of speed, energy, motion,  accomplishment, satisfaction and fun. Using Hightail creates a sense of empowerment, and enables customers to get things done quickly and efficiently.

"The Siegel+Gale team provided great creativity and expertise throughout our re-naming process," said Mike Trigg, chief marketing officer at Hightail. "Their branding methodology helped us arrive at a name that stands out in the category, yet remains relatable, true to our roots and resonates globally."

Hightail also launched a refreshed visual identity, including a redesigned website and mobile experience. The brand will continue to lead in the cloud file-sharing market by providing an easy and secure way to access, share and store files and folders for users across the globe.

About Hightail

Founded in 2004, Hightail was working in the cloud before the term was even coined.
