Concierge Services

Location

London

Essence is a private office, offering an all-inclusive global service to select individuals and their families.

With it’s Brazilian heritage, they were the perfect fit to provide a bespoke concierge service to the visiting US Olympic Team and it’s delegates during the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Given as a welcome gift, ’Rio’ was an informative lifestyle guide to the best culture, dining and entertainment the city has to offer.

Guide Book

Six were commissioned to design and produce a 120 page book on the subject of Rio. The use of Forest Green Colorplan and Munken’s Design Pure Rough Cream, subtly echo the green and yellow found in Brazil’s national flag, whilst retaining a rich and sophisticated colour palette akin to their other printed collateral.

The thread sewn book includes a foiled cover and blind deboss, which houses a sticker featuring Sugarloaf Mountain.
