Writer and naturalist Henry Beston is a truly legendary figure in American conservation and literature. Books like “The Outermost House,” “Northern Farm: A Chronicle of Maine” and dozens more are landmarks of the genre. Rachel Carson said he was the only writer to influence her work. He was the third recipient of the Emerson-Thoreau Medal, previously only awarded to Robert Frost and TS Eliot. An amazing man with an incredible legacy.
I was thrilled to be able to provide identity and digital design for a brand and site honoring his legacy in conjunction with his daughter Kate Beston Barnes, poet laureate of Maine until her death. Through this initiative, we have saved Beston’s home and served his causes. I love projects where I can help build awareness of something so important.
