Katie Boyle is a multidisciplinary creative. Her curiosity and love for design has taken her around the world on a mission of exploration and discovery. These experiences have shaped her aesthetic and core values.
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U), with a Bachelor of Design (Advertising) and several accolades, Katie works with digital forward brands and fine jewelry designers alike. In 2011, her design of the Mucalinda Serpent King bracelet was auctioned off as part of Leigh Blake and Alicia Keys’ Keep a Child Alive Foundation at the Black Ball, which helped raise $2 million in aid for those living with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
Katie then took her design skills to the wildly successful, award-winning fashion and lifestyle website COVETEUR. As Design Manager, all digital design and content related to editorial and advertorial was under her scope. Working closely with luxury brands around the world to tell their story in a unique, compelling way, Katie assisted in growing the business to one of the leading lifestyle destinations in the digital space. Notable brand partnerships include CHANEL, Coach, Sephora, Jo Malone, and Dior.
In 2016, she shifted her focus towards her eponymous line, kb. With kb, Katie focuses on innovative custom design, advanced technologies and environmentally responsible practices. Her goal is to create timeless, modern, and relaxed pieces you’ll never want to take off. Most recently, she completed the Comprehensive CAD/CAM for jewelry at the GIA’s (Gemological Institute of America) London campus as a scholarship recipient.
