Karen Robichaud LLC


An experienced storyteller in the arts, architecture, and design, I cultivate a holistic approach to strategic communications and leadership development. Serving as a creative leader and storyteller for award-winning campaigns and projects of multiple scales, I bring broad perspective to my work. I worked in-house at Boston Lyric OperaBohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Payette before starting my consultancy.

Skilled at articulating design excellence, I have developed successful submissions for several AIA award programs such as Firm Award, COTE Top Ten, Young Architect, and Fellowship.

I frequently present at industry conferences for profession organizations such as SMPS, AIA, and AIGA; I also often present at architecture schools regarding professional practice.

My work has been published in the Design Museum Magazine (guest editor: Issue 025, Common Space Issue), the AIA YAF quarterly magazine, Connection, SMPS’s Marketer, and Architectural Digest. I am a member of the Strategic Council for the Design Museum Everywhere and a board member for Open Architecture Collaborative
