Artaic introduced ‘Storytime,’ as part of the newly-launched GLYPH Collection.

Taking a modern approach to the ancient concept of “Hieroglyphics,” the collection showcases simple, crisp images that tell a detailed narrative. Using the Storytime designs, clients are afforded an entirely custom process, every step of the way, allowing any vision — from what the icon represents, to how it’s styled, to how different icons can be combined together to set the stage for a one-of-a-kind production. 

Inspired by the properties of Artaic’s newest innovative tile line, Vitreous Glass in 1” and ½” tile sizes, the Storytime designs can be custom fit to any wall, floor, ceiling, pool, or exterior facade. Elevating industry standards, the new Vitreous Glass sizes allow modular capabilities, creating a more seamless design process than ever before. 

Artaic’s design team hand-selected a plethora of themes for various environments and occasions, which can be used as an inspiration point in creating additional custom graphics. The collection’s designs include but are not limited to, Beach, Drinks, Fruit, Treats, Leisure, Music, Sports, and Woodland. Storytime can be further customized through new combinations of icons, development of new icons, and a variety of linework, color blocking, outline, and fill color options.

Mix and match icons to create an entirely new, customized look. For example, pair Woodland with Music to create Campfire Song, as shown below:

In addition to Storytime, the entire GLYPH Collection features the new Vitreous Glass line with an unparalleled color palette of more than 180 vivid colors. Equipped with the ability for shades to be mixed and blended to create a perfect color match, the collection’s customization possibilities are nearly endless. 

“Through the Storytime series, we aim to uplift the unique stories of our clients through a playful, communicative approach that allows us to explore new and creative possibilities of mosaic tile,” says Ted Acworth, CEO and founder of Artaic. “In addition to our depth of color choice, we’re also providing clients an avenue to easily match walls to floors and other surfaces to create a stunning modern style that makes any setting a showstopper.”

The Artaic design team digitally renders the imagery for each mosaic, then transforms the concept into its final form — a mosaic masterpiece. The brand continues to create award-winning mosaics that can be found around the globe, enhancing the design of spaces large and small.

Prime Certification and Inspection, a subsidiary of the United Arab Emirates – based Prime Group of Companies, is  the  first and only Philippine-based halal certification body recognized by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) and the only Philippine halal-certifying body authorized to  give certification for food exports bound for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

This follows new regulations implemented by the Saudi government last November 2020 stipulating that meat, poultry, and their derivative products can only be exported to the country if they have halal certificates issued by a body accredited and approved by the SFDA, which regulates food, drug, and medical devices both imported and domestic for the conservative Islamic country.  

With the approval of the SFDA, Prime Certification and Inspection serves as the only halal certifier in the Philippines with direct ties to the kingdom.  A leading quality and compliance solutions provider specializing in helping Philippine brands export halal products to Muslim-majority markets, Prime Certification and Inspection has certified 22 multinational companies and homegrown Philippine brands. 

Dr. Mary Jane Alvero – Al Mahdi, Group CEO, Prime Group of Companies, said: “Prime Certification and Inspection – Asia Pacific is proud to be the first and only halal certifying body in the Philippines recognized by the Saudi Food & Drug Authority. With the growing demands brought about by the rapid increase of Muslim populations worldwide, we look forward to providing the first step for Filipino brands to penetrate this growing global market.”

As the pandemic continues to change the way people secure their essentials, Allianz PNB Life also continues to bridge the gap between them and quality health insurance. Its newly automated lead management process on Facebook can attend to customers’ needs in real-time or within 48 hours, depending on the volume of sign-ups on a given day. 

“Customers on social media are used to instant gratification and deserve instant responses to their inquiries. Building our competency in this space is a priority for us, so Allianz PNB Life hopes to make instant service and short sales cycles the new normal for both customers and insurance providers,” said Grenz.

Customers who have availed of the Allianz eAZy Health plan can testify to being contacted within minutes of signing up, with a number of their applications already getting completed on the same day.

“I saw the ad on Facebook and found that the policy fits my needs. It’s affordable with great health coverage, which was one of the reasons why I signed up. Plus, it was a real breeze to apply,” shared Joey, one of Allianz PNB Life’s customers.

As the only enhanced critical illness plan, Allianz eAZy Health covers cancer, heart attack, stroke, and other critical illnesses. It also provides life, accidental death, disability, and dismemberment benefits for 360° protection. 

As an example, a 2018 study revealed that cancer can cost a patient at least Php 180,000 yearly. Allianz eAZy Health can help ease worries over huge medical expenses and prevent further financial burden for patients and their families.

For a female client aged 30 years, the premium is as low as Php 800 a month with a coverage of Php 500,000. The plan is available in a range of flexible options depending on a client’s needs and budget.
