Esther de Vries (1974, The Hague) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 1998. Esther is specialised in bookdesign, preferably in close collaboration with others, like artists, designers, curators and publishers. Through her meticulous working method, which consists of constantly reviewing and questioning the project at hand, she presents its content in a way that reinforces its diversity and richness, rather than simplifying it. She teamed up with Richard Niessen
in 2007 (Niessen & de Vries) with whom she now shares a workspace.
