WE HEART F1 ...
So we banded together to create a collectors journal rooted in radical design and world-class photography. We set out to offer a fresh perspective on the sport and a nostalgic look back at the golden years of the Grand Prix.
The Rev Journal started with a test issue distributed in Abu Dhabi at the end of the 2015 season. The buzz built and in 2016 we went on to produce six editions — each with a guest editor who developed his own content lineup: Carlos Sainz, Daniel Ricciardo, Daniil Kvyat, Christian Horner, Esteban Gutiérrez, and Paul Hembery. Special inserts during the 2016 season included content produced in partnership with AT&T and Red Bull.
Our 2018 season relaunch includes a total journal redesign and an expansion of Rev's exclusive offerings. (We now deliver extra swag with each issue.)
Having attended all 21 Grands Prix, the Rev team has also developed a ranking system for the race weekend experience to determine the best events for fans to attend. Read about our Top 15 picks (and vote for yours!) in the first annual Rev Race Weekend Index.
We're not your standard magazine. The Rev Journal is a 64-page large-format journal without any ads. It's all about dynamic imagery, engaging stories, and experimental graphic design. Each package includes the journal, a limited-run art print, and exclusive Rev merchandise.
How does it work? Packages are delivered throughout the year. (Check the issue pages linked above for expected delivery dates.) You can purchase the collection at any time and will be instantly caught up with your first shipment, which will include any previously released editions (including journal, art print, and merch).
The Rev Journal delivers an on-the-ground look at Formula 1 circuits, drivers, and regional attractions, combining an outsider's curiosity with insider access to bring you a mix of F1 perspectives you won’t find anywhere else.
Our team travels to each city before the race to tour the circuit, hang with the locals, sample the regional specialties, discover the culture — and then assemble The Rev Journal.
The 64-page journal is printed on sturdy, large-format paper that is meant to be folded. To maintain a collectible, coffee-table-worthy quality, there are no advertisements. We're proud to work with such a talented collective of F1-loving creators, and this publication exists to showcase that passion.
We're beyond inspired by the magnificent visuals of Formula 1, from the linear nature of cars to the nostalgia of a vintage photograph. As a complement to each edition, Rev art prints capture a unique aspect of the sport through collaborations with F1 drivers, notable photographers, contemporary visual artists, and groundbreaking designers. Separate limited-run art prints are also commissioned. Printed on 8-by-10-inch enhanced archival fine art paper.
We create Rev-branded products with a nod to our favorite Formula 1 era: 1970–1990. Our designers create with a Rev racing team in mind, imagining the merchandise we would have developed during this time for our globe-trotting fans. One item is included with each edition of The REV Journal.
Magnus Greaves, Editor-in-Chief, has published a variety of magazines over the years. His first Grand Prix experience brought him in 2004 to Monza, where he spent much of the race above the Ferrari garage inhaling fumes and trying to comprehend how the cars were able to make such a frightening yet beautiful sound.
Tom Brown, Creative Director, is widely known for his award-winning work designing magazines and developing custom typefaces. He was 9 years old when he saw his first race on ABC's Wide World of Sports and in 2004 got to feel the ground shake for the first time as the cars rolled out onto the track at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
Paul Weaver, Formula 1 and Technical Editor, is the former Formula 1 correspondent for The Guardian, an enviable post that has taken him to every Grand Prix host city around the globe.
Emily Chavous, Lifestyle Editor and Social Media, is a travel and feature writer enamored of the locals who make each host city feel like home. She watched her first Formula 1 race on the small-screen at Satellite Sportscafé in Amsterdam over a bottle of Heineken and a Dutch pancake.
Fredrik Brodén, Chief Photographer, is an award-winning photographer with an extensive portfolio across fashion and lifestyle. He recalls first watching F1 in the mid '70s on a black-and-white TV with rabbit ears at his family's summer house in Sweden; Ronnie Peterson was driving for Lotus.
Helen Archer, Head of Production, has traveled the world managing creative projects for global brands and advertising agencies. The most significant race she remembers viewing on tele was the August 1976 German GP — Lauda's accident; and he was back about six weeks later to drive again.
Darren Heath, Race Weekend Photographer, has covered Formula 1 professionally for 30 years. He was hooked at the very first race he attended — as a very, very young boy at Brands Hatch for the 1968 British Grand Prix, and as soon as he discovered his passion behind the camera lens, Heath’s No.1 goal in life was to become the best photographer of the sport that he could possibly be.
