CAA Magazine won for best use of photography for the Throttle Service story in the Summer 2016 issue. The layout was designed by Mya McNulty, and the feature written by Paul Ferriss. The article used photography shot on location at Laguna Seca Raceway by photographer Saroyan Humphrey. Saroyan is an experienced photographer with an interest in racing (he’s also published a book of his racing photography) with a knack for capturing the human side of the sport. His work has appeared in many magazines, most recently Road & Track. Totem has also assigned Saroyan to shoot the racing feature in an upcoming issue of Acura’s customer magazine, Apex.

Acura’s Apex won in the design, new magazine category. Although Totem has been working with Acura for over 8 years, Apex marked a significant shift from its predecessor, Acura Style, the previous incarnation of the Acura’s customer magazine. While Style was a glossy, consumer-style magazine, Apex is a high-end journal-style publication that breaks from traditional newsstand presentation and design. Printed on heavy stock and filled with a mix of Acura-centric stories alongside longform features on travel, technology and business, Apex has taken on an upscale feel and reading experience that is aligned closely with the Acura brand’s focus on hand-crafted precision and luxury.
