This edition of Breed presents… The Podcast sees us in conversation with Kuchar Swara. Kuchar is the Creative Director of The Telegraph Media Group, where he leads a design team across branding, editorial design, marketing, and whatever else is thrown at them.
Kuchar first attracted attention while at Winkreative after working on the redesign for Italian art and architecture magazine Casa da Abitare.
Magculture’s Jeremy Leslie, who we’ve talked to previously for Breed presents…, described this work as ‘an almost idealised version of early Modernist graphic design’.
Working under Tyler Brûlé, the man behind Wallpaper* and Monocle, seems to have had an influence on Kuchar, as he co-founded the biannual men’s style magazine Port in 2011.
As if that wasn’t enough, Kuchar wanted to translate his graphic design skills into a 3D format. So, he started British watch company Sekford, where his ability to fit things together in intricate detail was put to the test.
Kuchar has won awards from D&AD, the Society of Publication Design, Society of News Design, and Type Directors Club. And he occasionally judges on international design panels.
You can listen wherever you get your podcasts, but we’ve included a link to Spotify here.
This will be our sixth and final podcast of this series. But, rest assured, we’ll be back in the New Year, and already have some fascinating guests lined up. See you in 2024.
