Meanwhile, Jones and Kimbrough were realizing that if they could transform a toothbrush from dream to reality, they should take advantage of their company's growing skills.

"We came close to launching our own ideas, but we always knew we had big pieces missing," Kimbrough said."We suddenly realized we did everything to go to market, so we should go to market."
But they wanted to do it in a way that would further strengthen them against offshoring.Kimbrough worries that design might go the way of engineering.Brand development is the West's next safe harbor, Kimbrough and Jones decided, so that's where d:e is heading.
...
That's deeply cultural in a way that design isn't," Kimbrough said.
This instinct for survival turned the principals' minds toward man's best friend.Sentiment was irrelevant in their decision to focus on toys and water bowls for their first product launch, although employee pets always have had the run of d:e's offices.
Instead, they surveyed the consumer goods landscape and settled on a patch of territory — pet accessories — that hadn't already been colonized by a brand, Kimbrough said.
"The more research we did, we realized this is not about the products," he said.
