Rebel CommonSpot Microsite

As part of the Rebel 53 staff, I was tasked with creating a microsite in CommonSpot: the university's content management system. I was required to attend CommonSpot training in order to gain access to the CMS. This was the first time Rebel Magazine had its own page on the university's website. The microsite also has an archive of all of the Rebel magazine covers going back to the early 70s. The site is still being utilized today by the most recent Rebel staff.
