What's your role at i-on?

I oversee editorial and production and have a general interest in anything to do with the growth of the business.

Why do you live in Scotland?

Proud, confident and honest what's not to love? If it was 10 degrees warmer we'd be onto a real winner.

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

I've a penchant for recipe books, Pilates, sandy beaches and Spanish wines  (ok, I don't worry too much about the country of origin). Love my family too.

What’s your role at i-on?

I oversee the sales department and look for business development opportunities for i-on.

Why do you live in Scotland?

All the obvious ones: it's beautiful, the people are open, honest and warm. It's home. But as a business owner it's also a land of opportunity. Entrepreneurs are encouraged and supported and doing business here is a pleasure because people are true to their word and you can trust them. 

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

I used to love eating out a lot but since becoming a mum to my son Luca, my favourite thing is to hang out with my little man. Combining fine food and a toddler is challenging but I give it a go!


Nicky Howden, Editor

nicky houdenWhat's your role at i-on?

As editor of i-on, my role is very varied and includes everything from forward planning the content of the magazine, commissioning editorial and fashion stories to writing, editing and proofing. I’m also involved in the production side of things and look after the pagination of the magazine as well as imagery. No two days are ever the same and that’s the way I like it.  

Why do you live in Scotland?

I've been fortunate enough to live in Venice and Florence during my student years but nowhere comes close to Scotland for me. From its stunning and diverse landscape to its colourful history, world-renowned culture and food and drink, Scotland has it all. I was born and bred in Edinburgh, and at times I forget how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful city.

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

Of course I love to write but when I'm not working or in research mode, I love to travel, socialise, eat out and shop. My fiancé and I have a chocolate Labrador called Leo, so I'm now somewhat of a keen walker and spend a lot of my spare time trying to tire my two year old pup out in some of the capital's walking spots… with a seemingly endless amount of energy and a love of meeting new people (and stealing balls) he certainly makes walks a lot more interesting!


Rebecca McCosh, Digital Editorial Manager

rebecca mccoshWhat’s your role at i-on?

Heading up the website, it’s my job to bring you daily updates on what’s happening in your area and beyond - researching, writing and curating quality content to inform and inspire. I also look after the newsletters, delivering the latest lifestyle highlights straight to your inbox. Plus, you’ll find me over on social media - Facebooking, Tweeting and Instagramming a fast-paced mix of news, views and trends.

Why do you live in Scotland?

I moved to Scotland as a student, fell in love with the place and never left.

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

In the summer I try to pack in as many surf sessions and barbecues as possible. Scottish winters, on the other hand, were made for hearty home-cooked meals and ‘80s movie marathons.


Paul, Creative Director

paulWhat’s your role at i-on?

I design i-on magazine every month, a job I've taken great pleasure in since I joined the company in 2008. It’s great visiting so many venues and stores across Scotland and seeing my work on the shelves and counters.

Why do you live in Scotland?

I was born and raised here.

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

Being dad.




Susie Lowe, Head of Photography

susie loweWhat’s your role at i-on?

Photographing the great and good of Scotland as well the most stylish places and delicious food.

Why do you live in Scotland?

I’m an Edinburgh native but I’ve spent time living overseas as well as London and the South Coast. I came back to Scotland for a weekend in 2005 and haven’t left.

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

I’m lucky enough to love my job and my work is pretty varied, I get to travel a lot and there’s never a dull moment. When I’m not working it’s the simple things that make me happy; being at home with my family, watching my son play rugby and taking him to see Scotland play at Murrayfield, meals and drinks with friends, yoga and swimming.


Amy Falconer, Account Director

amy falconerWhat’s your role at i-on?

I work closely with both new and existing clients to develop and deliver effective marketing campaigns both in the magazine and online.

Why do you live in Scotland?

I am a home body and am very close to my family and friends. I hate to be away from them for too long and am always there at the drop of a hat when there’s something going on.

Other than i-on what do you love doing?

I love getting out and about in the city, enjoying everything Edinburgh has to offer so i-on really is the perfect place to work for that.
