Kuchar Swara is an alumni of GMD & DPS and founder and Art Director of Port Magazine.

Port magazine has just launched its 15th issue, which features a striking series of portraits of composer Esa-Pekka Salonen shot by Pieter Hugo, and photo features on New York cricket, sea bass fishing and SCP owner Sheridan Coakley’s Hampshire home. We spoke to creative director Kuchar Swara about the issue, and some of his favourite Port features to date…

Port was founded in 2011 by Swara, Dan Crowe and Matt Willey, who created the magazine’s bespoke typeface. As Swara and Crowe explained to CR at the launch of issue one (interview here), the title was founded with the aim of providing a broader and more in-depth range of content than mainstream men’s magazines. Each issue combines photographic essays, long-form articles and features spanning film, design, architecture, business, food and literature. Past cover stars include Ralph Lauren and actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.
