Project Overview

Bluecadet has been the Museum of the American Revolution’s partner in all things digital for over a decade. Along their journey from concept to brick-and-mortar museum, we designed a logo, a website, fundraising materials, and an award-winning educational app.

The culmination of our work together is a suite of permanent exhibit interactives for the new, fully-realized museum.

They reveal the hidden stories of the War: from the under-told experiences of freed and enslaved African Americans who fought on both sides to the unseen nicks and graffiti adorning soldier’s weapons.
