Hans Teensma, Publication Designer

Creating a new book or publication is what I love best: bringing words and pictures together in a clear and creative way.

I’ve been doing that for decades and see no end to this passion.

From my studio in the village of Williamsburg in Western Massachusetts, I design and produce several books, magazines, and other projects a year.

My design is rooted in the classical style, but I’m always excited about fresh concepts and solutions.

I design for the screen, too, but still love print the best: my motto is "To have and to hold."


Book clients include:

  • Abrams
  • Chronicle
  • Disney Editions
  • HarperCollins
  • Stewart, Tabori & Chang
  • Viking Penguin 
  • Forum Gallery
  • Pixar
  • Impress Publishing

I launched and redesigned over twenty magazines. Not to get too archival, but the curious can check out my history here.
