Richard Niessen & Esther de Vries — Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Being graphic designers doesn’t limit them to two dimensions or sole print work: their designs range from exhibitions to textiles and from ceramics to coins, always highly "compressed" allowing to "unpack" the meaning.
Graphic designers Niessen & de Vries describe their work as "lyrical design": expressive and imaginative, using a richer language to appeal to the senses and the intellect. Their work is involved, subjective and personal in origin. It is spontaneous, even conversational, not intended to impress with its erudition or cleverness.
