The process was very easy. The design that we ended up with was different than I initially had in my head and I would have never gone in that direction if it weren't for 99designs. The artist took what I described and their interpretation took it to a whole other level for us. I would definitely recommend.

I create and curate luxury retreat, tour, and event experiences for both private and corporate clients. Experiences can range from an exclusive wine California country cooking retreat, to cruising through the Greek islands on a luxury yacht , or immersing them in French village life while learning crafts with local artisans in very small groups. Events hosted by Kurata Experiences are also about creating a curated exclusive moments to connect with others or celebrate.

I am very interested in a leaf symbol. Also would be open to integrating seed pod. I see the logo in a gold color but also open to other subtle colors. I really like geometric designs. I have attached a few photos, only for drawing style ideas. The most important is that the logo needs to communicate luxury. I would like the logo to be nearly equal length to width and use a easily accessible font.
The word Kurata is adapted from the Italian word Curata, which means to curate - watch over a selection, or cure, or treat. The first definition fits because we spend a lot of time finding special experiences and eliminating places that don't fit our ideals. The alternate definition fits because I believe that immersive experiences can be a cure or treatment for a stressful life.
