Proprietors of Boston Goods & Curiosities


1630 was conceived and created by the team behind design and branding firm Visual Dialogue. Proprietors Susan Battista and Fritz Klaetke have worked with Boston’s leading developers, businesses, and organizations for over 25 years, creating brands, websites, interiors, wayfinding, signage, large scale graphic installations, publications, and packaging. With 1630–their first retail store–they celebrate Boston’s unique history in a new way. See video of our first pop-up here.. (And for those of you wondering about the name, 1630 is the year Boston was founded.)
