I welcome back everybody okay so you can seeing.
-- these products next to me they look bring it up but there kind of more fun.
And -- joined by.
Stephanie Smith this -- The co-founder and of the creative genius behind the move collective.
And -- -- your business in 2010 and this is such an amazing story because your numbers in your expansion.
So let's I guess start where you got the idea.
For what it is you know which you can explain to us.
Well -- and -- it's it's been an amazing ride and I think it's it's a product that people really.
Connect with and they see the function behind it as being something went through -- a lot of -- ahead.
And an -- and you know they've they've basically refill -- of the filter inside then.
You can change and people love that I think -- You know understand that they think this as a filter -- it -- yes it has -- this is actually on new products so this is funny plus seven so this is just launched in the -- -- and that's all the -- Yet if you Obama joining us seven okay and is it different from our original bubble because it's sort of -- more of a durable -- -- guys in the dishwasher and it's good it's gonna add an untouchable soft cap.
Sides could that you know -- gym bag as well on the handbags and you had done up from the water fountain the -- revealed and bonds says its cattle anyway etc.
-- -- -- -- bag it's really -- why it's so it's easy to carry around and when we launch the product two years -- was just amazing I mean I'd love to -- was ops but it was really the consumer is people just loved it.
And they still been made Florida and and they -- just it and it.
It wasn't only domestically but internationally it's being humane society and 35 -- yeah -- -- two years old yes yes it's it's incredible and I think.
I think what's really fascinating for me -- I come from a black and creative branding backgrounds and I just love the fact that people appreciate it does -- Right and then love brand and I love.
You know today and they can see there the former bubble is it is beautiful and and people you know I I trust consume is in in in its highest level that they really love how much would that -- for saying this -- that's come out -- products on the monument which is an -- point five bubble it's it's -- it's -- -- body.
And that retails for about ten dollars.
And then assets and about second -- which was the bubble jog which came out about eighteen months -- done.
And this is.
It it it's similar informant he can say -- could -- a similar -- -- -- that this fund retails for about twenty dollars and this -- creative way around it's good that you could fail to hate your job.
From the tap you can put -- in the fridge that -- basically it's such a beautiful product that it could go straight from the -- to the titles I was I was.
I'm we have for Anna at my parents' house anomalies -- management and -- yes.
-- very you know companies and yes anyway that he had -- Yes so then and -- is the idea behind it was that if we had you know we had.
Affordable designed to papal then that though Bible took like -- was -- of -- the papal it would really be interested in right.
-- where we find your products -- said there and target what other stores you know we've had such an amazing race helped pick up in the states which is fantastic can mean.
Where in Bed, Bath & Beyond best -- pick this up which is fantastic.
Will also we -- with American Apparel so it's got such.
It's got let me start with American how banks can tell us it was amazing Aaron and the demographics for American power was really interesting because I've.
But the most comments from -- from sort of you know the kids saying I'm senior product in American Apparel -- It's amazing the -- -- actually come to -- said this is is attending our values pursuing started well I think it's got a lot to do what amount and then it's it's that amazing thing where.
I think you know -- developed a lot of products the -- but I admit how -- again.
But another I've never had one huge black face you know never had -- I mean I'm reading your notes he in the first nine months of sales your ten pursing company.
Brought in deciding not yet -- -- -- only businesses.
And a cost to it you know lasting as -- five million -- -- -- kicking again and I think it's got so much to do with creativity and innovation.
And I mean when we -- with -- it was a very it was a very kind of straight -- category and we came in and we really.
We -- -- a little bit and I think you know out.
How tagline is -- put to bed and I think it's all about the fact that there's so many products they use Warner and -- -- -- avenues that can go into humans.
With -- range of product and I think that there's a real difference between a product in a brand right and I think bubble as a product has the essence of the brand.
So people it risen -- with people -- people to connect to it and I think.
Out team has always been very focused on every single little -- -- -- The way we speak about it the way it looks you know that.
Then -- the way we photograph of the way we -- touch and we we just we just believing that that entire essence because we think.
You know -- papal can.
See that it it it risen nights repaid on paper than people love it and you know and that's.
You know you I think you have bad -- you've got this amazing what a bottle -- that the ten dollars and it sits in your gym bag and it's grant.
So I know a lot of people are probably scratching their heads and -- up only -- thought of that or what did she do that was so different why -- I get my business on the ground so can you just take us through maybe some of the steps.
The ha moments that you had.
In bring yeah I would -- you know I think am I think we've bubble.
It's -- about you know -- Crichton and -- the more people we have on something animal creative and and great ideas.
The bit of the company and we stop admit collected with CI deer and it has moved -- -- could diminish it was it was his -- there's where oh where -- where a black.
A small group -- -- only a few -- bicycling and we needed to have to build to a level very quickly.
So we outsourced created hospice and we said to them you know help us develop something really special so we -- that sort of the best creative minds that specialize around -- idea.
Around -- idea is so you remove collective -- floor Bob -- only if Clinton is the parent company my bubble.
And it via IDs out of that would have you know would have several different products and is collective would it would get sort of in Korean appreciate and he's team to do the designing -- we've got company called safari Sundays you get creative and we worked with.
Chaos institute and maybe and -- We're talking about.
Really getting those minds of the best in their areas.
And getting into all contribute to this line of products sold that we're gonna do a bubble was a fast fun and bubble -- just exploded.
And built into what it is today and I think.
I think it's it's having it's having had -- passionate tame but finding that the best people to help -- alive yes.
Yes that's really Andersen's and these are the same.
Plus trade here than the three in the pain -- -- yet on the new -- Disney name yeah yeah yeah -- visit to battle on the web site at a bank -- -- and it's it will be available in stores that are in the next couple of months and it's it's it's basically Al latest new us.
-- -- Or how it definitely is how would you define.
The -- and -- eco movement you know bottled water is class day and it's it's so much money and conservation is in.
How do you -- -- that green I love that.
And that excites me and I think about the whole of innovation platform I mean there -- -- many ways that you can get.
You can even get sustainable with the things -- develop -- new ideas you have and it it I just love the fact that consumers are incidents while.
I'm a study when I'm into the states I think it was five he's a -- There was finally a few products a few green products in the market and that's what you know -- amazing American story well now it's it's it's in everybody's you know it's in everybody's conscious -- Say they care about it and they -- you know they wanna cut down on plastic.
Plastic bags and they don't wanna keep buying single -- water bottles and and but you know they think about what happens to what what they throw away.
And certainly I think I think it's really exciting I think he intends of developing and branding that is.
It is he's on national market yes that is how how long in the Philippines Latin I have yet how often get you know.
Replace them -- -- way to look at it really is 300 pieces and we have yet we've only one here.
Yes and that and it really depends on sort of how much forty drink during the another great thing about about bubble is that -- -- -- become -- means I know.
I'm now taking some what and they quite surprised that that it's it's -- that -- convenience and yea so -- the -- -- use it obviously.
We should look -- is like a three month period that's yen and then and then -- -- a change in either bet you know come.
You can you can I've been united seasonal time bit.
The I can tell because it it's that of eight bit of the through attrition -- It becomes like agencies have not -- becomes did you know it's time to change -- -- that they can be can just tell pretty -- Instead it yeah yes.
-- skies and affection in the states which is fantastic.
A -- comes from China -- -- that's sort of -- -- spent a lot of time you know quest for slimming down a lot to China for the job.
Basically just manufacturing capabilities.
It -- any exit -- little.
Keeper that bullets and it's a big a product and one of that you know when we -- develop products that kind of like to -- -- -- for different -- so we sit and we want to make it.
We basically want to make it as as beautiful as possible so obviously aesthetics we wanna give it some kind of some kind of functional difference engineering difference but so obviously in this one it was filters as you -- is that my -- filtration device in the jog it was a fox penetration side.
Basically you can attend the faucet on and -- on the tap and -- feel to straight away from which meant that bucket on the I'm products in the market that is usually to risks of -- which means it's.
It's a lot slower and you have to wife and if someone doesn't -- -- it's quite annoying.
So that was that was the second -- having some kind of some kind of innovation.
On it than it was then it was about the sustainable and then it was also about.
Manufacturing in a different why so -- -- for example this is a blow molded products them.
And we aesthetically really wanted to make sure that we had a whole -- handle.
Right and that might seem like sort of nothing that it really change the design and look at the product which is because.
Most of them on the market solid right so that -- solid color often cited as I was little it's little things like that that anything yet that yeah -- really think make the difference over.
Stephanie -- you so much for having me really very refreshing thing.
This is amazingly simple -- had a great thanks sometimes think you -- end before we end this.
