Abusable Past

A WordPress site for an academic journal focused on radical history.

Radical History Review is an academic journal focused on rigorous historical scholarship and active political engagement. Their team's goal was to develop a companion site to the journal, called Abusable Past. This new site would host free original content, supplementing articles and topics of interest from the subscription journal.

I modified a premium WordPress theme with highly functional, organized menu features for their multiple content offerings.

While their budget did not allow for in-depth branding work, I curated a branded feel utilizing public-domain historical images and colors similar to those in their print publication to create brand cohesion across mediums.
