Fargo Monthly Magazine September 2018

Fargo Monthly

There are many ways to tell a story, but clothing can often speak a world of stories and experiences without uttering a word. A ring can capture the memory of a loved one, a torn pair of jeans can memorialize a thrilling misadventure or a t-shirt can make a fun-filled vacation. We entered the closets of some of Fargo’s most stylish and let them give their clothes a platform to share their own unique stories.

Bison Illustrated Magazine September 2018

Bison Illustrated

It’s football season, Bison Nation. 2018 will see the North Dakota State Bison go for their seventh FCS National Championship in eight years. While past teams have had plenty of attention and expectations attached to them, this year seems different. This year’s team is shaping up to be one of the most dominant in the program’s history. Is the hype surrounding this team for real? Is it warranted? It’s safe to say you should believe the hype because this Bison team is ready to dominate the standard.

Special Bison Illustrated Alumni Issue Is Out Now

Special Bison Illustrated Alumni Issue Is Out Now

The annual Where Are They Now? issue of Bison Illustrated is out now! It features an all-encompassing look at the scope of Bison athletics through the eyes of former players and coaches from different decades.

This issue was mailed out to more than 40,000 alumni and fans across the country, and it’s also available in select locations in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Keep an eye out for it today! It also features a special 16-page insert with information about North Dakota State’s Foundation and Alumni Association and people who have made NDSU what it is today.

For the annual Where Are They Now? issue of Bison Illustrated, we pulled names from all eras of Bison athletics. We focus on former players who still live in Fargo, alumni currently working in the non-profit sector and some of the most familiar faces in recent years of NDSU athletics, too. It’s an all-encompassing look at the vast scope of Bison athletics through the eyes of former players and coaches.

“For this issue, we took a big leap of faith financially and decided to mail this alumni issue out to over 40,000 alumni and fans across the country for free,” publisher Mike Dragosavich said. “When I think about how this magazine can best serve the athletic department, it has to be to help reach fans outside of the Fargo marketplace because the local media outlets only reach so far.”

The issue will also feature a special 16-page insert with information about North Dakota State’s Foundation and Alumni Association and people who have made NDSU what it is today.

“We were so privileged to tell the stories of former athletes,” Bison Illustrated Editor Nolan Schmidt said. “My main goal as Editor was to not only tell the story of their athletic careers, but what occurred after they competed. NDSU has the tradition and history of athletic success, but it is so much more than that. These former athletes were groomed for success after graduation. That is the true testament to NDSU’s ever-growing, rich tradition.”

Spotlight Media has started donating a portion of the proceeds from Bison Illustrated subscriptions to charitable programs. Right now, $5 of every $29.99 subscription will go towards the AO1 Foundation, founded by Carson Wentz.

This special issue is just about to go to print, so be on the lookout for it in your mailboxes and on stands in the Fargo-Moorhead area in about two weeks!

Spotlight Media Team Took To The Streets For Distribution Day

Spotlight Media Team Took To The Streets For Distribution Day

On Friday, June 8, the Spotlight Media team delivered our new June magazines to more than 300 businesses throughout Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo.

Spotlight Media employees visited area businesses to get the new issues out and be more involved in the community. This distribution day was part of a company-wide effort to be more efficient with all processes, including distribution.

Our employees paired off into teams and tackled a different part of the Fargo-Moorhead area. We all had a list of destinations to visit, and we grabbed several boxes each of Fargo Monthly, Fargo INC!, Design & Living Magazine and Bison Illustrated before hitting the streets.

After we finished our routes, we met back at our Spotlight Media office downtown to reconnect about the day and what we learned about our community while we were out and about.

The Spotlight Media team on Distribution Day

Here’s what some of the Spotlight Media team had to say about our distribution day:

  • Sales Executive Dan Helm: “It was a good way to end the week and get out and talk to people in the community that I wouldn’t have gotten to during a normal work day.”
  • Design & Living Magazine Associate Publisher Chantell Ramberg: “It was great to see how much of the community appreciates our mission and what we do as a company. I felt fortunate to have a day dedicated to connecting with our audience.”
  • Chief Operations Officer Steve Kruse: “It was a fun team building day and it was also fun to go into the different businesses and see how excited they were to see us when we walked in with their magazines! I also have a new found appreciation for what our distribution team does on a daily basis.”
  • Design & Living Magazine Editor Becca Opp: “I love team delivery day. This year, the associate publisher of Design & Living Magazine and I had a great time getting out there and meeting our readers!”

Dr. Seuss penned his famous last book before any current NDSU student-athletes were alive. But his messages have resonated through generations. “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” was Dr. Seuss’ swan song and for Bison athletes, his final book sums up the commitment they made to play NDSU.
