DC wins cool award
by Staff | posted May 5, 2014

The winner

It's with knuckles bruised from exuberant fist-bumping and elbow tendons strained by high-fiving that we note Desert Companion's showing in this weekend's prestigious Maggie Awards, handed out in Los Angeles by the Western Publishing Association. The cover of our April 2013 spring fashion issue, above, shared top honors in the category of cover design for consumer magazines with a circulation of less than 75,000. Whatever the color of stoked is, color us stoked.

To the judges, we say thanks for recognizing the fine work of Art Director Christopher Smith, photographer Robert Kley, stylist Christie Moeller, hair/makeup artist Krystle Randall and model Britt. To Bike magazine, with which we shared the top spot, we say, you're going down next year! And to the readers of Desert Companion, we say thanks for your continued support. We plan to be back next year with even more industry accolades to celebrate.

Shooting the food

In the Desert Companion secret test kitchen — okay, the home of Staff Writer Heidi Kyser — Kyser and Art Director Chris Smith created treats from kid-friendly recipes that will soon appear in a special edition of the magazine: Desert Companion Family. Here, Chris lines up a tasty shot. What's he shooting? See for yourself when this special issue hits stands in mid-April (see desertcompanion.com for more details).

He's got game
by Christopher Smith | posted February 28, 2014

Oh, snap!

Behind the scenes at Desert Companion: Photographer Sabin Orr takes one of the many shots he snapped of UNLV baseball star Erick Fedde, culminating in the portrait that appears in "Champions on the Rise," a feature in the magazine's March issue. "Champions" profiles five young local athletes worth watching. Look for Desert Companion at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Jamba Juice. (Photo by Christopher Smith)
