What’s in a Name?

A summertime resident of Maine, the hermit thrush is a diminutive brown bird partial to secluded wooded areas. He is hard to spot, but his ethereal, flute-like song can often be heard in quiet places in the evening.

When I first heard a hermit thrush sing, it seemed to me like a fairy’s song. It embodies for me the essence of dusk in the woods, that magical in-between time. The

sound never fails to make me stop whatever I’m doing to listen.

As a graphic designer, though I communicate primarily through images rather than sound, I am inspired by this modest little bird with the enchanting song. I like to think that through the medium of effective design, even the most ordinary product or service can have a big impact!

    HI Hannah, my son Josh Jacobs suggested that I contact you to discuss a redesign of my current site. Long story but years ago we converted the entire site to word press and I’ve enjoyed making adjustments, doing the blog (not recently, unfortunately, but I am going to get back to it), and so forth. But it’s more complex and involved than I want it to be…need a new look, clean, with a focus, easy to navigate,and of course beautiful and a bit more contemporary, etc.

    Please let me know if this is something that interests you. I want something simple and very effective.

      Hi Barbara, thanks for getting in touch! I would certainly be interested in working with you on your project. I’ve just been admiring the photos of your installations on your website. I enjoy working with color myself, and I think it would be really fun to create a lovely showcase for your work. Please feel free to email me at hannah@hermitthrushdesign.com, or call me at 207-350-0761 and we can talk more about it.
