    John Morgan Studio has been art-directing high-profile art magazine ArtReview since September 2013. For the “Future Greats” issue, Morgan and his staff channelled their inner Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957) and emulated the layout of BLAST, the short-lived Vorticist revue launched by Lewis in 1914 (see image below, as well as the dedicated entry).

    The typeface on the cover is most likely Stephenson Blake’s Grotesque No.9, which had indeed been used in the original, groundbreaking pages of BLAST. The one for the masthead looks very much like a modified version (an intermediate weight between Regular and Medium) of Team77’s Haas Unica.
