This announcement has been in the works for a while now. This site has been live, but it has taken longer than anticipated to officially get the word out. Although what follows is a big deal for us, it is absolutely clear to us that it is time for a company refresh. We are not an experts in branding, but we received some seemingly simple, absolutely life-changing advice from an industry colleague a few years back. He said this:
"Do what you do well, and let others do the same."
He encouraged us to own who we are, to be our most authentic selves. "Be real," he said. "Smile. Listen." This is a simple concept, really. But in a world full of comparisons and constant striving to be a new versions of other people, it's easy to get distracted by all of the noise. Navigating a competitive landscape of creative minds is often hard to do with authenticity and grace. And our maneuvering has not always been graceful. In fact, it has been pretty messy at times, but we have been ourselves, for better and for worse, offering to our clients something real in which we can believe.
For over three decades, who we are, was a company founded and led by an amazing artist, designer and teacher; our father, the late Richard Carbotti. His name on the logo was bigger than the company name, Perfect Surroundings, because he was the real company. He was the face and life of a brand he worked tirelessly to create in accordance with his unique skillset and personality.
But now it has been 35 years since our company opened its doors, and for the last six years we have been without the man that started it all. There was only one Richard, and so, in order be be our most authentic selves we have breathed new life into an established company by changing the name while keeping the most identifiable part of who we are.
We are the same company with an impassioned love of design, even more dedicated to the creation of unique and tailored experiences. We just have a new look!
We have grown and evolved into an even more capable and creative entity, with even broader reach and offerings, and we have many of you to thank for this, as our friends, partners, clients, and colleagues. It is our hope that together we can continue to create and build exciting experiences around the globe while elevating our great industry to new heights.
Carbotti Experiences will continue to design and produce unique corporate and social event experiences, and looks forward to expanding its portfolio of services into other lifestyle ventures. We sincerely appreciate all of the support from everyone, and we are grateful for the opportunity to set out on this new journey among such amazingly talented and visionary people.
