The toothbrush has been around for centuries; in one form or another. It played a huge role in the progress humanity has made since the times of Neanderthals and it seems that it’s constantly evolving and it’s getting better and better every year.
The latest toothbrushes are powered by rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries. They use oscillating, sonic, or ultrasonic technology and studies have proven that they are more efficient than traditional toothbrushes.
But how did we got here? Here’s an infographic by the Amazing Consumer which is titled The history of the toothbrush.

This infographic presents a history of the toothbrush. The clear, timeline-focused layout is well organized and keeps a reader moving through the piece. Each timeline entry is accompanied by a visual, which helps develop the infographic's visual communication. However, it's not always clear wheat the image is. Part of this may be due to the varying design styles, which limit the development of a visual aesthetic. The copy is brief and well sourced. It could benefit from some shaping and concision. Additionally, the headlines of each entry feature the location rather than the primary event, which makes the focus a bit unclear. Overall, there's a lot of helpful information here, but it needs a bit more clarity to achieve its full impact. We'd give this a D.
