Every month, the Arizona Highways crew gathers together to take a look at our next issue of the magazine — before it goes to print. This means, we tack up each page on a wall and look at all 56 pages at once… this is a fantastic opportunity for the team to talk about what works, what doesn’t and why.
We thought we’d share some photos from last week’s meeting where we reviewed our September issue. Needless to say, we are all incredibly proud of this particular issue, and we think you’re going to love it too…..
Of course, you’ll have to wait until it hits newsstands in mid-August.
In the meantime, here we are hard at work!

We just wrapped up the July issue of Arizona Highways and we’re already hard at work on our August issue.
Yes, we’re in the thick of things, but we thought it would be fun to share a day in our life. Yesterday, the gang crammed into Art Director Keith Whitney’s office to take a look at a layout he’s been working on for the last few days. Everything we do at Arizona Highways is a collaborative effort… and that’s a very good thing, because each month we create a top notch product.
As for how we work together, well, let’s just say comedy writer Robert Orben was absolutely right: “If you can laugh together, you can work together.”

Every month, the gang on the editorial side of the magazine gathers to make final changes to an issue before it goes to the printer — we call it collating. The process can take several hours and often involves some debate…. Should we add this? Should we cut that? This doesn’t makes sense…. that does make sense…
Here, we’re editing the July issue and we think you’re going to go bananas when you see what we’ve packed in these pages… keep an eye out — it’ll be here before you know it.
