Our Team-old

“We help designers define their role as leaders within the industry.”


Founder & Chief Idea Woman

Kim Kuhteubl is an author, award-winning producer and coach with an unapologetically, uncommon take on doing business.  

She founded MeByDesign, an idea boutique for the Home industry in 2011 and works with interior designers and the trade in the United States, Europe and Canada. Her first book, Branding + Interior Design has taught thousands of designers how to bridge the gap between designer and design leader. Using her proprietary Visibility Strategy, she’s helped more designers go from six to seven-figure revenue than any other coach in the industry. She’s also helped designers with little or no press, coverage get featured in publications like: Architectural Digest, New York Times, Elle Decor, House & Garden (UK) and featured on network and cable television. Several have also negotiated television development and product licensing deals.

Kuhteubl has hosted standing-room-only presentations and panels at conferences like: Decorex, Dwell on Design, West Week LA and the D&D’s Fall Market with celebrity designers like India Hicks, Clodagh and Martyn Lawrence Bullard.

She is a member of the Producers Guild of America and has created episodic lifestyle, news and unscripted programming for digital, cable and network television. Her films have screened at leading festivals in Africa, the United States, Iran, England and Canada including Toronto International Film Festival’s Sprockets Globetrotters Series.

She is a Producer and Host of Voice Lessons, a podcast about creativity, visibility and the way women lead.
