Esther de Vries (1974, The Hague) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 1998. Esther is specialised in bookdesign. She enjoys to start working from the very beginning when the first concept of the book still has to be defined on to the last final details, and prefers to do that in close collaboration with others, like artists, designers, curators and publishers. Through her meticulous working method, which consists of constantly reviewing the project at hand, she presents its content in a way that reinforces its diversity and richness, rather than simplifying it. 

Esther runs a small publishing house since her studies, teaches graphic design at KABK and as a guest teacher at the Design Academy, shares a workspace with her husband Richard Niessen 

Clients are artists or designers like Tejo Remy, Scholten & Baijings, Manon van Kouswijk, Paul Noble (UK), Auke de Vries, Erik Mattijssen, Tanja Smeets and institutions such as Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Gemeentemuseum Den HaagToeval gezochtAtelier van licht, Stedelijk Museum, Gerrit Rietveld Akademie, de Balie, Cinekid, and publishers like Spector books, Nai/010, Lecturis, Phaidon; companies such as TNT and Daimler Art Collection.
