USAA is a member-owned financial services group with millions of members worldwide. The company produced three quarterly magazines geared toward young members. Rachel Bell helped develop content as an independent contractor for all three magazines. She edited and proofread copy and layouts, and interviewed contacts for podcast material and key quotes. And, when USAA’s public relations agency of record needed help on-site, USAA recommended her for the project.
UMag was for USAA’s youngest members. Geared toward small children, UMag put an approachable and fun twist on serious issues like finances and responsibilities.
