I had a pretty good experience. I found the designers mostly responsive, although some just bombarded me with too many designs. Overall I would recommend it.

Project description

The company, Ishiki, offers group training in mindfulness for the general public. Its philosophy is that all people, individually and collectively, deserve the higher quality of life that comes from increased emotional intelligence. The mission of the company is to up-skill clients in mindfulness, resulting in increased emotional intelligence and a higher quality of life. 

Mindfulness is defined as "paying attention in the moment, on purpose, and without judgement". It includes a large set of skills, that are honed through consistent daily meditation practice. 

The company is based in Japan in a ski resort. Their are two target markets: 
  • companies operating in the resort who are mostly service providers of short-term accommodation/outdoor activities and;
  •  tourist groups of women visiting the town to ski or engage in other holiday activities.

The name of the company "Ishiki" means awareness in Japanese. 

The logo needs to: 
  • be simple, intelligent and sophisticated-it is the blend of intelligence and simplicity that is critical, think the "Aesop" brand 
  • have a softness, without it turning into one of these typical day- spa logos with cursive writing and a floral motif
  • have the name "Ishiki" in the logo 
  • potentially include an image of a brain (representing the mind) and a heart somehow connected/intertwined
  • potentially include the slogan " nurture your mind"

When people see the logo I want them to feel something before they think, I want them to feel relaxed and open.  Then I want them to think "that feels good, I want to do that to take care of myself". 

I would also like to see business card options please. I would like the cards to reflect the above brief and also possibly have the following quote included on them 

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” Einstein
