We believe in community over competition

The idea

iola magazine was dreamt up by Abi Partridge. Abi is a designer and writer who is passionate about encouraging other creatives in their creative lives. Remembering what it was like when her children were small and she was desperate for an hour or two on her own with a cup of coffee and a magazine that was gentle to her, Abi decided to create one for others.

The magazine

iola is a breath of fresh air for those who love good design, music, creativity, articles on wellbeing, relationships, life, and faith. It is foremostly a print publication intended for your ‘time out’. Before a new edition is published we share some of the content from the previous edition here on the website.

The creation

iola is also a place for women to share their creativity, iola is formed by a group of international creatives, who are invited to submit content every issue. If you would like to know more about submitting to iola please go here. You can follow along the journey of iola on Instagram
