Opening its doors to the public on April 15, 2011, the Printing Office of Edes & Gill is the only colonial-era printing experience on Boston’s historic Freedom Trail. Visitors have the opportunity to engage living historians working their printers trade in pre-revolutionary Boston. On April 7, 1755, Edes and Gill became the proprietors of The Boston Gazette and Country Journal. According to the author of Infamous Scribblers (2006), the Boston Gazette, arguably the most influential newspaper the country has ever known, got us into the Revolutionary War, sped up the course of the war and may have even determined the outcome of the war.
Founder and Executive Director Gary Gregory invited me to sit on the museum's advisory board. As part of my role, I consulted on business matters, introduced a key sponsorship and designed marketing materials, including business cards, direct mail cards and the BostonGazette.org website. I also designed the website for Gary's other business, a Boston tour company called Lessons on Liberty (lessonsonliberty.com)
