At the core of our mission, the Good Death Experience lies the graceful and vibrant hummingbird. In our exploration of the end-of-life journey, we inevitably encounter a spectrum of emotions and uncertainties. It’s a topic shrouded in myths, fears, and avoidance – one that we all must eventually confront.
Our Compelling Visual Identity
Our hummingbird logo, adorned with these vibrant and meaningful colors, alongside the tagline “Reimagining the End-of-Life Journey,” creates a compelling visual identity for the Good Death Experience. This combination captures the very essence of our movement, conveying a sense of beauty, compassion, and positivity in the face of a profound life transition.
By adopting the hummingbird as our symbol and incorporating these vibrant colors into our brand, we send a powerful message: We are committed to transforming and enhancing the way society perceives and experiences the end of life. Our vision is one of dignity, hope, and a more compassionate approach to this inevitable journey.
Why the Hummingbird?
Imagine a delicate hummingbird, gracefully flitting about. It’s not merely a creature of beauty, it carries great significance regarding death and what might await beyond it. Across various cultures, hummingbirds are viewed as messengers of impending death, but they also serve as a poignant reminder, that death is not the end, it’s the start of an eternal journey.
The hummingbird often embodies a messenger from Heaven, offering solace in the knowledge that our loved ones who have passed on are safe and content in divine care. These qualities make the hummingbird an ideal symbol for encapsulating the essence of the Good Death Experience – a movement dedicated to reimagining the end of life with compassion, dignity, and hope.
