"The Future is only dark from outside - Leap into it, and it explodes with Light." - Mina Loy
From her manifesto Aphorisms on Futurism, first published in Camera Work issue 45 in January of 1914. Loy was a fierce progressivist both politically and creatively. She was associated with all the major art movements of the early twentieth century, and had a brief affair with both Futurism and its leader Filippo Marinetti.
In this design, we wanted to create something aggressively vibrant, giving it a sense of movement as you read the words.
