Redesign! This latest issue marks another new look for Port, which notably does away with Matt Willey’s bold blocky masthead, now replaced by various hand drawn versions from each of its five cover stars: Taika Waititi, Teo Yoo, Jasmine Jobson, Cai Guo-Qiang and Franz Rogowski.
On the process, the team explain: ‘It's the sort of thing that can't be forced - on set, after he had drawn the Port logo, we asked Franz Rogowski to give us some more options. He refused, telling us if we asked for more, it'd be our interpretation and not his. He's right.’
Another bumper issue, bookended with new sections—‘Portfolio’ offers a round up of creatives, while ‘Commentary’ is a a matt literary section featuring the likes of Zadie Smith and Philippa Snow—to go alongside The Port Review of Design, an insert dedicated to design current and past, and edited by Deyan Sudjic (who was responsible for one-off design publication, Anima that came with the last issue of Port).
