Q-tips have been the staple brand for cotton swaps since their creation, they have kept a similar brand language with little evolution in recent years. This is a concept to differentiate from the pack and create a better package for Q-tips. A clean, simple theme fits the product's function and will help the aesthetic fit with today's brands. As well as a new package design to naturally dispense Q-tips will help usability. The user has the capability to rip off the entire side to access all cotton swaps within the package, or remove the front strip to grab only a couple at once. The shape lends itself to be laid in any arrangement and can surely stick out on a shelf compared to it's competitors.
The form and aesthetic are something new and different to make it stand off the shelf and still be able to stack for shipping purposes. The form also helps in becoming a dispenser using gravity to help the user grab 1 or 2 q-tips at a time.
