Essential, a Palo Alto, California–based tech company, creates devices both for smartphones as well as for smart homes. Eschewing the typical site that centers only on a company’s tech, digital design firm Hello Monday paired Essential’s products along with the people who create them, focusing not only on the capabilities of each device but also the thought behind it.
