Contest Brief

Looking for creative and innovative artistic designers to propose and sketch rough initial art designs to create cosmetic sleeves or thin cases that would go around an asthma inhaler/puffer (see attached PDF for details).. Looking for various fun, fashionable, or imaginative looks to elicit great feelings for different age groups (kids to adults) - the sky is the limit of your imagination. Minimum of 3 unique and different sketches are requested through this project.

The sleeve (either silicone and/or plastic) would be designed such that it can easily fit around the most common asthma inhalers without interfering with its function (either pressing of canister at top or flow of medicated air at mouth-piece). In addition to aesthetics (unique and creative 2D and 3D designs), the sleeve can also provide other functions to carry/protect the inhaler. Various designs are needed for different groups - kids, fun, adolescent, fashion, sports, luxury, etc. Winning designs are those that combine creative looks, emotions, ergonomics and functions.

In a separate follow-up project, the selected sketches will be further refined and used to ultimately create appropriate digital 3D renders for further consultation and 3D printing of the initial physical prototypes. Ideally the follow-up project would also be completed by the same designer as this sketch project, depending on ability and know-how to bring the physical product to life.

    Thank you all for the truly original and varied designs submitted by everyone so far. Please note that this contest will remain open to the end of the original timeline, so you still have a few more days to submit any remaining ideas.

      Another important factor is the need for air ventilation holes at the top of the sleeve if the top has a completely enclosed design. This is to ensure that air can be easily inhaled along with the medicine from the canister during use. I realize that at this stage we are in the creative stage, so not to worry too much at this stage, but something to think about if it can be incorporated in the design early on.

      Also, while creating your designs please be mindful of the best material(s) to realize your designs, and how the sleeve/case can be put on or attached around the inhaler, especially given its "L" shape and usability requirements.
