Abusable Past website
My dedication to social justice informs the majority of my professional pursuits. For six months I worked with a team of historical scholars scattered across the country to develop a supplemental website for an academic journal called Radical History Review. “For more than forty years, Radical History Review has stood at the point where rigorous historical scholarship and active political engagement converge.”
My task was to build The Abusable Past, an online publication that will feature select content from the journal, as well as exclusive interviews, book reviews, and related multimedia. I customized a premium WordPress theme using HTML, CSS, and PHP. To present a branded feel without an actual branding system, I selected colors, test images, and typefaces to create a defined theme based on the aesthetics of their print journal.
