In 2013, Kate founded Kovert Designs, a ‘New Age’ Design House based in London and New York. The company’s mission is to find new and creative ways of using technology to improve your lifestyle, empowering you to be the best version of yourself.
Kate believes in the power of real human connection, and communication far beyond that of bits and bytes. As such, she calls for smarter ways of integrating technology into our lives, so as not to allow it to distract us from our core purpose, or make us lose touch with ourselves or our surroundings. Kate wants to empower us to take control of our technology, rather than letting it control us. One of the ways in which Kovert does this is through the creation of products such as ALTRUIS (http://altru.is/) - smart designer jewellery that allows you to take a step away from your smartphone, alerting you (with subtle vibrations) only for the most important notifications, meaning you can get back to real life and focus on the stuff that really matters.
