The Essentials Project, an endeavor by creative director and designer Daniel Eckler, explores the contents of the bags of 100 different global creatives. I love that each visual vignette provides a glimpse into each owner, allowing you to piece together who the person is and, at the very least, appreciate the unique ways that each of the 100 participants tackle the same project.
