about

Wolverine CuiZine is a student-run food magazine publication and events club. The club is separated into 3 departments - writing, creative, and business. The business team is in charge of creating school-wide events, while the writing and creative team work together to publish 2 magazines per semester. 

my role

As the Vice President, I ensure that the three teams are meeting the deadlines implanted for their projects, that everybody's work is up to standards, creating schedules and goals for the upcoming semesters. As the Creative Director, I lead a team of designers, illustrators, and photographers to create visually appealing magazines. I hold month meetings that include critiquing, delegating projects, and working together on projects.

  • Increased club popularity on social media by 20% by re-designing the layout of the magazine and re-branding the club’s purpose to appeal to the student body.
