On December 16th, 2020, The ECI International Digital Innovation Award Ceremony was hosted in Shanghai. Illuminera won the Marketing Innovation Award, on merit of its forward-thinking insight and data-empowered end-to-end creative and consulting abilities, as demonstrated in its cooperative project “Mid-Night Cream Launch and consumer co-creation”with L’Oréal’s CMI [1] team. Clarie Zhang, partner at Illuminera and head of the “THREE INNOVATION” boutique, received the award at the ceremony on behalf of the company.

The awarded case was a cooperative venture between Illuminera and L’ Oréal’s CMI team utilized the advantages of the TMall Innovation Center (TMIC) digital to create a new milestone in marketing and consumer co-creation.
