Healthy Beauty Innovation

By Pauline Gaudillat on August 07, 2019 12:30 Call for entries 0

Disruptive and Natural cosmetics for Healthy Beauty

Sadly, the cosmetics industry as a whole is characterized by an over-saturation of new brands and product launches that have no true breakout innovation or relevant points-of-difference. In-store shopping experiences are not what they used to be, as store shelves are filled to the brim with me-too, look alike products that consumers are left overwhelmed and confused.

Today, Physicians Formula wants your help to enable active 18-34 year-old American women to freely express their individuality through make up, while respecting their natural beauty and the natural environment. Can you help?

Meet our creator of the month - Abdiel Hernan!

By Pauline Gaudillat on August 06, 2019 12:00 Featured Authors 1

This week, let's read more about a very creative member of the community, Abdiel_Hernan! This creative soul from Guadalajara (Mexico) joined eyeka more than 2 years ago and won 11 prizes. This success can be explained by his favorite mantra: “Do only what makes you happy”. You definitely want to know more about his creative background and process!

 

Tell us a bit more about yourself.

I'm a faithful believer that we live in a state of constant flux, before it was very easy to define yourself, because you were really an artist, architect or journalist and basically you only were one profession. Since I was a child, I have felt multifaceted, I have always felt fragmented.

I consider myself a trans-disciplinary creator. A lover of pencil, food and simple things. A good friend and lousy godfather, obsessive, scathing, honest, passionate and bold. An ideas dealer from the University of Guadalajara, graduated in Arts. I currently work from my own studio Dondon Concept Design, based in Guadalajara, Mexico. Developing art direction, design, packaging, illustration and fetish objects for agencies and brands.

I like to eat pitayas and I love folklore and ingenious Mexican. In my spare time if I'm not walking with my beautiful girlfriend, I'm usually cooking for my friends or enjoying a beer; sometimes all at once.

How did you find out about eyeka?

Two years ago, when I started my own project and after having working for more than 9 years in the advertising industry, I wondered why advertising had to comply with these boring rules of the 1950’s, while other industries related to Entertainment can play with much free ideas.

Then I looked for options to have fun and create more freely, so I found the eYeka platform; to my surprise my first entries were within the short list. I currently have more than 10 contests won, part of the profits I use to know destinations.

Do you have a creative process? If so, can you share a bit of your secret with our community? Where do you look for inspiration?

I'm a meticulous, obsessive and disciplined guy, I consider that travel, read, take the time to breathe and appreciate the world, stimulates us, makes us create, imagine and connect in more meaningful ways, there is nothing more sustainable than beautiful things.

My creation process is very random but thorough, I believe in the mix of disciplines to cause unusual approaches to ideas and achieve interesting results.

When submitting an entry, how do you keep positive if it is rejected or not selected as a winning entry?

In the creative industry it's often thought that when you do something right, you gain confidence, but the opposite happens with ideas. Every time you have a good idea it becomes more difficult, because it's believed that it’s difficult to have another one. However, create is a necessity that requires work on something completely new, always! Conceive new challenges is a way of feel that I keep moving forward.

Failure is a constant in life, but it’s the only way, for analysis and learn, is the only route to write completely different stories.

What would you like to achieve (or have already achieved) with the prizes you will win/have won?

I spend it on travel, food, and sometimes I use it to fund a variety of personal projects. Right now, I'm working on “Monogram; nothing is fancy” a collection of leather goods that reinvents everyday objects for a contemporary lifestyle.

If you had to describe eyeka in 3 words, what would they be?

Brands, recreation and coffee.

Finally, is there anything you would like to share with our creators?

Don't spend much time in bed, unless it's Sunday, and you have an amazing smile by your side.

On the other way, the people around you always tell you: define yourself, learn, focus you, do only one thing, specialize and be clear about what you are doing. But what if you like art, philosophy, carpentry, biology, business and things that maybe have nothing to do? Suddenly, over time, it seems that it is good not to be just one thing, because you extract all that background that now becomes a superpower. 

Thank you so much Abdiel!

Dugro - Lead Healthy Children to Success

By Mikhail Kachakhidze on August 01, 2019 15:28 Call for entries 0

Help Dugro raise Mums’ awareness on the importance of a healthy lifestyle for their children future success!

Most people assume the modern society we live in offers better life condition to children. However, despite the constant progress there are some scary side effects that we often ignore: children today expend 400% less energy compared to 40 years ago, social isolation at a young age could impact mental health at adult age, bad alimentation can result in tiredness and lack of concentration among kids. Today it is much more complex than it used to be to evaluate what a children suffer from, hence the importance of a holistic health approach.

Holistic health is more than just optimal height and good marks in school. Good health encompasses physical well-being, cognitive development as well as emotional health. Lacking in any of these aspects directly impacts children throughout their lives into adulthood, reducing their ability to thrive and ultimately their success.

First-time mums are not necessarily aware of that, or they are not concerned because they keep focusing on traditional milestones, where cognitive development is believed as the most important element to succeed. They assume their child is growing well as long as he has a good height and weight, but they can miss crucial elements.

Dugro, a well- known Children’s Milk Brand in Malaysia, believes that for every Malaysian child to succeed, we need to ensure they have a really holistic health foundation. Dugro is committed to ensuring every Malaysian child has a good start in life – smart, healthy and happy. Can you help?

Dugro - No Label For Kids

By Thomas Langella on August 01, 2019 15:27 Call for entries 0

Show millennial mums that no label should limit their kids from seizing opportunities!

Malaysia is a country where traditions still play an important role in families. The new generation, influenced by digital media, comes with a fresh and progressive mindset. Raising their first child is an opportunity to affirm this difference while remaining attached to their family values.

Millennial Mums want their children to be successful. They believe their child is special in his own way and with a good mix of hard work, opportunities and luck, he can be the best version of himself. But as first-time mums, who are constantly experimenting with their parenting style, they can sometimes be unsure of what they should do. The dilemma being that the way society define success or achievement carries many norms that can sometimes refrain kids from realizing their actual potential.

Dugro, a well-known Children’s Milk Brand in Malaysia, believes every child is unique and has the ability to succeed in his/her own right. We need your creativity to inspire a campaign to bring down the labels among kids and convince mums that their child can be the best version of themselves. Help us unleash every Malaysian child’s potential by showing in a poster how labels should not limit them!

BabyNes® New Solution

By Pauline Gaudillat on July 19, 2019 12:46 Call for entries 0

Invent a new, best-in-class, portable nutrition solution for busy moms & their babies.

Parents want to give the best to their child no matter what stage of life he is in, and this starts with the best nutrition for a baby’s healthy growth and development. Today, moms who can't or don’t want to breastfeed, bottle feed their baby with infant formula. Typically, the equipment includes a tin of infant milk, bottles and detachable nipples. The preparation entails measuring / dosing the powdered infant formula and the water, boiling / heating the water to the right temperature, and shaking the mixture to get rid of lumps. When the baby is crying, the preparation can be nerve-racking, stressful and rather long!

BabyNes® is a revolutionary integrated nutrition system that makes a precision-perfect bottle of infant milk with 1-handed convenience! The BabyNes nutrition system is comprised of an age-based range of mono-dose infant milk capsules which are hermetically sealed and a  machine. All you have to do is select the capsule, put it into the machine and it’ll prepare the formula in the bottle at the right temperature, with the right dosage, and perfectly mixed. Feeding times can be programmed in advanced and connectivity options allow moms to track feeding via a mobile app even when the baby is with the care-giver. 

Today BabyNes® needs your help to create the next innovative nutrition solution, separate from the current machine & capsule system, for modern, working, active moms. Can you help?

Design a mobile, simple and disruptive nutrition solution for babies and their moms from pregnancy through toddlerhood.
