About



Studio Ruiter Janssen is an independent design office specialized in information design. By mapping data we visualize information from an original perspective. Our autonomous projects rise from a personal curiosity and interest in present-day issues in society. These projects reach their audience through publications and exhibitions. Our commissioned work meets a wide variety of clients, ranging from governmental institutions to newspapers, foundations, companies and cultural institutions. For 2016/2017 Ruiter Janssen is selected for the talent development-program from Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
