Kim Kovel

Designer, Architect

Before her top-secret role in Nike’s Innovation Kitchen, Kim Kovel helped craft Nike’s creative vision as the Global Color Design Director of Footwear. Kim’s breadth of experience, from earning a Masters Degree in Architecture, to launching a snowboard apparel brand, creating custom jewelry from baby teeth, writing the first, best, and only cancer coloring book for adults, designing interiors with Skylab Architecture, and collaborating with brands such as adidas-Salomon, Fila, Patagonia, and Moncler, exemplifies that following your gut, not the rules, is a pretty good path. She loves what she does, and hopes you will too.
