Port Russia Launches in Autumn 2012

Commenting on the launch, Dan Crowe, editor and co-founder of Port says: “It’s so exciting that Port is migrating into different territories, with new audiences. The essence of Port – merging intelligent style with world-class photography and design – is proving that it is worth translating. We look forward to seeing Port establish itself in other Ports…”

Port Russia will be edited by Anzor Kankulov whose experience in magazine publishing spans 15 years at some of Russia’s most respected lifestyle titles. He has previously been editor-in-chief at OM and Harper’s Bazaar (Russia). Between 2009-2010, Kanlulov joined forces with soprano Elena Bakanova to publish Black Square – a highly successful publication celebrating modern Russian art and fashion.

“It is often the case in magazines where even the best editorial content is lost because the reader experiences the feeling of being sold too many items or ideas that are useless,” says Kanlulov. “Port on the other hand speaks to us only about the things which we want to know about, that are of interest, from a broad range of topics from style to economics and politics. Here is a magazine that looks at the worldthrough the eyes of an adult person who wants to be informed; a magazine which features things that are handmade and authentic, like in any good thing.”

Port Russia will exist in a number of creative formats, encompassing the print edition, a Port Russia specific website and a number of bespoke events.
