Some blogs wrote about A Hermetic Compendium: The Daily Heller
: "Let's get things straight. Richard Niessen’s work bounds to blow you out of this world. Not only because he specializes in delightful typographic compositions but also because he has this kind of work that reminds you of simply nothing. One can hardly find an ensemble of work that could stand visually parallel to his."

For Dutch graphic designer Richard Niessen, the poster is a favourite means of expression. Posters don’t simply hang on walls – they can be piled up, cut out, turned around, or used as way finders or board games. Niessen freely constructs and deconstructs the visual environments, functions and codes inherent to the medium. This compendium
of screen-printed posters not only reflects his work, but can be seen as a set of clues to unravel his universe. The interplay of the selected works forms three constellations of sign, symbol and ornament. According to the introduction by Tony Côme, “Language is a building game whose blocks Richard Niessen keeps trying to reinvent.”

SEPTEMBER 01 2011Marian Bantjes
on Niessen & De Vries in the Guardian
: Richard Niessen and Esther de Vries are Dutch designers and their work is really surprising and modern. They use a lot of geometric shapes and experiment with printing techniques. It's the kind of work that makes you pay attention: you can't glance at it, think "I get it" and move on. Sometimes you need to engage with it physically: they made a catalogue for an exhibition about nests and there were ways you could take the book apart and make a nest. It gives me a feeling of great optimism that there are people doing work like this.I think sheer imagination is relatively rare. A lot of very good graphic design is brilliant or clever or impactful – but not always delightful.Marian Bantjes's clients have included Wallpaper, the New York Times and the Guardian.

MARCH 05 2010
"Niessen & de Vries designed a special box for the drawing and the etching of Adam and Eve by Rembrandt van Rijn (1638).
It was made in collaboration with Raf Snippe for the Prentenkabinet of the University of Leiden
. The box brings together the forestudy and the etching in which Rembrandt depicts Adam and Eve in an unorthodox way. The designers focussed on the mirroring image of the etching technique and the ambiguous scene using the two-part typeface Bifur (1929) by A.M. Cassandre in contrary relief, with parts in apple wood. The box with the art works is now shown in a small exhibition in University in Leiden."
JANUARY 23 2010
To mark the 20.000th issue of the daily newspaper "Trouw", Niessen & de Vries were asked to design a special cover for the newspaper to commemorate this occasion.
