Nik Howe is to the communications world what the Swiss Army Knife is to camping. His love of 90s pop manifesto The Face paved his way into consumer magazines where his unparalleled flair for both words and pictures ensured a meteoric rise to the helm of the some of world’s largest rags. He became synonymous with launching new titles, reviving tired ones and his work spanned lifestyle (Maxim, GQ Active), fashion (Maxim Fashion, GQ Style), sport (Evo, Channel 4 Sport), entertainment (Time Out) and kids (Time Out Kids).
Since largely shipwrecking himself in Australia in 2007, he’s launched Time Out in Sydney and, for Fairfax Media, the men’s lifestyle magazine Sport&Style, where he was implicated in the arrest of Damir Dokic following the Serbian's threats to “fire a rocket” at the Australian embassy if an issue containing a Jelena Dokic tell-all story wasn’t removed from the shelves.
He now combines his own solo projects with work he executes for clients through Infinity Squared and his own multi-disciplined creative communications partnership, Arsenic & Sugar.
