The founders of Quip believed the toothbrush – although an everyday object – had been generally overlooked. They saw consumers being consistently faced with the same array of colours & standard features when shopping for a new brush, regardless of price point, which had led to an indifference to both the toothbrush and its purpose. The founders who themselves were successful industrial designers therefore sought to revamp the toothbrush, and through a redesign of its aesthetics, functionality and branding turned it into a lifestyle product.
